Candy AQ1000 Compact Stopped

I have a Candy AQ1000 Compact washer, yesterday the circuit it was attached to in the house tripped out as it started it's cycle and since then it hasn't been working. When I try to start it I can hear the water entering the drum but then nothing else happens. I have then opened the washer and found that the water hasn't drained out and is sitting in the bottom of the drum. I have opened the screw/valve thing at the front bottom right of the machine to let this water out so that it wasn't sitting there but the machine just doesn't seem to want to get into the cycle. Is there anything you could suggest that might be the problem that I can fix?

    The machine was manufactured in 2005.

    When you put it on a regular cycle it lets in the water and then stops, that's it, nothing else.

    When you put it on just a spin cycle it turns the drum for about 10 seconds slowly and then stops and drains the water out if there is any in there from the previous attempt.

    So I know that everything is working, pumps, motors etc but it just doesn't seem to want to work for more than 10 seconds at a time before cutting out.

Hiya mikpem... try replacing the brushes in the motor.. the age of the appliance suggests they are about ready along with the symptoms you describe!

Start button doesn't work on King Size Washer

Are there any lights on at the washer? If not check the washer circuit breaker in your house main circuit breaker/service panel. If it is tripped reset it and try start button again. If it trips again you need a service call. If there are lights on try turning the washer main knob to off and unplug the washer from the wall outlet...wait 10 seconds then plug in and try start button again.

Please can you help our washer was working fine. Now when we switch the plug on at the wall iy trips the mains. i have removed the top cover and notced a small cylinder bolted on the back with the mains...

Not familiar with this machine, but what I can say is sounds like your talking about the capacitor that the brown wire is attach, you need to find out why there is water. Capacitors can/are storing charge so there may be danger of electric shock, I short circuit them for safe handling.

Power overload swith in the house has started tripping when the dishwasher is started

Is this happening only now! If it was working OK earlier and tripping now only it may be due to some electrical fault inside the machine.

Switch off all the high power appliances and try the dish washer. If it works you have to check the breaker overall power rating!

If it trips during dish washer ON, the fault could be in the heater circuit of your machine. Heater Insulation would have become weak etc.

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker

It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.
