Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, Candy keeps blowing the fuse. It is not the main fuse in the house(was checked). I
You think it may be the heating element. You asked any advice?

I feel you have a short somewhere . and who knows where? How old is the appliance and what did it cost?

I've seen 3 or 4 people in the past 24 hours that replaced the heating element in the same candy 455 dishwasher and still had the problem.
They told me they felt they did not want to spend any more money ont his unit cause they said, it was an inexpensive model!
So my clients told me!





Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace you appliances?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive appliance
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Where can I buy new loading baskets for my DWI 160 dishwasher?


These come as several parts. Not sure if all are available anymore as Candy parts. But you can get replacement Hoover parts to fit.

Main basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Dishwasher Basket

Cutlery basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Universal Cutlery Basket

The Upper and Lower baskets may not be available from Candy but Hoover replacements are
Candy Use HVR41022779 Lower Basket

Best to ask Candy support to provide pictures of the parts for comparison with your model or purchase or a refund policy if not suitable.

There is another site worth checking (but prices seem high)

Water doesn't heat up and cycle seems to be stuck, candy DFI 45


What is a Candy brand dishwasher? Made in the UK? That is not a manufacturer I have ever heard of here in the US.
What do you mean, 'doesn't seem to heat up any sense?'
If the dishwasher is older than 5 years, write it off to age a buy a new, high quality machine. Or do the dishes by hand.
Machines get old and die. If you are UK native, don't buy anothre Candy.

My Candy DFI Plan shows E3 and stops washing after 10-15 minutes. The problems started because electronics( I swithed with new) than I change the water pump, the heater, the thermostats and when is on,...


E3 - Water heating time out or fault

The dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element.

Check water heating element wiring
Check water heating element
Check wiring to main control module

Candy DWI 160 dishwasher water not heating.


the only things is the TIMER: CAN BE FAULTY, maybe is stuck, not completely the cycle.

Candy cs455 m dishwasher tripping out power


if what you mean is that it trips the circut or fuse in your home then the circut that you have it pluged into is not sufficent to hold for the elctrical load that the dishwasher needs. you can do one of two things. change the circut that the dishwasher is on ( plug it into a circut that has nothing else on it or verfiy that the circut can handle a higher amperage .. if thats the case change the fuse / circut breaker to a higher amperage.

providing its not under guarantee remove mains plug and remove door skin from front of door carefully, as it has to go back on, look for any broken wires just above the door hinge, there will be about 10 or 15 wires, its possible that if you have checked what you said have checked properly that one of these wires has got hot and broken (very common fault of all dishwashers aver 3 year old) replace wire with care etc, work safely,
