Question about Candy AQW130 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Faulty on off button

My machine has a faulty on/off button. Currently I can't switch it off, which is a problem as it's full of washing. I can't therefore open the door. I suspect a problem with the button mechanism. Anybody got any ideas on how I can open the washer to release the button and get my washing out.

How to soak somethings overnight in my new LG washer ?

The method we use on our LG WF 8071TTP top-loader:

Load stuff to be soaked.
Add soap.
Set load size and water inlets.
Start wash cycle.
Wait until water is full, and begins washing.
Press Start/Pause button.
Press Auto Stop button to switch machine off.

Next morning:
Press Auto Stop button to switch machine on.
Press Start/Pause button.
The fuzzy logic (if machine has this) will register that machine is full, and washing will continue.

Spins when empty. Why not when full?

When the machine is full, the built in sensor triggers a switch to let the machine know there are clothes inside. Check the sensors and/or switch, as they may be faulty.

Drip dry switch / button on
Sud save switch / button on

I have an akira washing machine. problem is that when it comes to spin...E2 will appear. what is the problem n how to fix it? thank you.

E2 is a faulty button on your control board. Rub your hands over the buttons to make sure none of them are stuck and if you find nothing, try to unplug the unit for 60 seconds. If you continue to have issues, the control board will just need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. Here is also a link for the manual.

It could be a faulty lid switch in the blue display board.
