Question about Candy AQW130 Front Load Washer / Dryer

Candy Aquaviva 1300 washing machine

Candy Aquaviva 1300: As the drum speeds up there are intermittent noises as though some thing is catching quite badly. I had to switch it off it was so bad. I'm wondering if some thing has got inbetween the drum and it's outer casing? Iv'e got the back off and removed the bottom hose to see if I can feel anything. Nothing. With the belt removed the drum revolves smoothly with no roughness felt in the bearings. However, when I lift the drum by its lip at the door there is a small amount of play. Could this be enough to make the inner drum foul the outer case? How big a job is it to remove the drum to remove anything that has perhaps got inside or to fit new bearings if required? Are any special tools required? I'm retired now but was a car mechanic for many years. I've searched the Web looking for a repair manual for this machine, but haven't nad any luck. Hoping you can help.

HI THERE I have a candy aquaviva 800 washing machine and it seems to not want to drain all of a sudden, i have taken out the hose at the back and given a good wiggle and sat with it in a bucket while

Your drain pump is dead. Have a serviceman replace the pump. How old is the unit? If it's old enough that it has the old belt-driven style, have them check to see if the belt is stretched or broken.

This is usually located either near the bottom front, possibly behind a plate, or inside the rim of the drum. Check the user manual.

Candy aquaviva 1300 no heat while drying

disconnect the unit from the mains supply and remove the lid you will find a thermostat with a red button on it, press this and if you hear a click, problem solved to prevent fault reoccurring always let the dryer cycle finish its self as stopping it early can cause the heater box to overheat.

My Candy automatic washing machine will not spin

Try the drive belt from motor to the drum it could have stretched a little? The noise you can hear could be the heating element catching the inner drum or something like a wire from a bra came loose in a wash and is trapped between the drums ?
