Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Machine starts to spin out of control


Both problems could be related to a blocked drain, from what I can see in the manual. 3 Things to check -

1. Clean the filter - instructions can be found on age 24 of the manual.
2. Check the drain hose has no kinks/securely fitted.
3. Check the drain trap under the sink for blockages. Make sure waste water can drain away freely.

Keep a couple of old towels handy when checking the drain filter, if water is trapped in the machine, it will flow out of the filter housing when you remove it. Try a drain cycle for a minute or two before you remove the filter, then turn the machine off, and check it. That way you'll have drained as much water as it will allow.

The manual can be found here- http://service.candy-domestic.co.uk/manuals/pdfs/CNW156.pdf

Hi, You need to make sure the drain hose is as high as the top of the washer. If the drain hose is to low, the water wil drain out before it reaaches the proper water level.

Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.


Thanks

Hi, I have a Candy CIW100T washing machine and its recently stopped draining the water aty the end of the cycle. Can you help please? Thanks


Check filter behind kick plate on bottom front of machine. Drain water out first by lowering drain hose into bowl or bucket.
Plz come back if further help required.

Dryer - acquaviva 1300 - how it works?


the dryer has 2 thermostats if these are blown then the heater wont work but you can check to see if the element is burned out by unplugging your machine opening the top off it the wires that plug into the element replace with a plugged wire with bare wires on the end place each wire into the correct connector and turn the plug on this will either heat the element up or if it doesnt then the element is blown m8
