Question about Candy 17 in. CS455 Built-in Dishwasher
Re:"Is It the dial because everything else seems thing?"
It is not necessarily the dial. The dial is expensive and difficult to test directly, before replacing it you test any other possible cause. From now onward I will call the dial CCU (central control unit).
Before replacing the dial check:
Inlet, water temperature and thermostat.
This is most likely cause if dishwasher hangs in the middle of the cycle.Ensure that water is hot. If there is no hot water, check water inlet line and inlet valve.
Have a look at inlet lines at the back ensuring that they are not kinked or blocked.
Even if there is hot water the thermostat must be tested. The thermostat must read zero impedance at room, and cut at limit temperatures below 80C, reading open when hot. If thermostat does not open, then the cycle will not advance as CCU does not detect water is at temp.
This is located near to the drain hose, and detects water level. If problem is pressure switch you get cycle hanging in drain. Pressure switch is difficult to test and cst relatively little money, it gets replaced if the problem is water level related.
It must always be tested by running a cycle with contacts jumped.
The anti-flood (aquasafe) device located at the base of the unit may also cause cycle stopping, in that case the machine will stay off from a point onward, with light still on but not cycling. The device is tested in full by jumping it.
Some of the tests above are suitable for a technician, if you need to call a repairman, call Candy service number listed on manual.
