Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Candy washing machine fills with water when not on.

The washing machine seems to work no problem, washes, spins and empties. Yet when left for a while, I come back to open the door and it is at least half full of water. It did this once before, while still under warrenty, but stopped doing it just as I gave up trying to work out why and was about to call in an engineer. Can you help with ideas?

    I have the same problem. The drum is filling up while the machine is switched off. I think the hot water inlet is trickling water through the soap tray even when it is not on. Can I replace the inlet valve without calling an engineer?

    My washing machine fills up with water when not in use. It washes, drains, & spins, but then fill up again. I have taken the machine apart and cleaned everything and have no blockages or flow problems. I push drain/spin and then I am able to do a load of laundry.

    I have the same problem. My washer keeps filling with water between loads. It's a big problem if I don't empty my washer as soon as the load is done as I have to re-spin the laundry.

Do check your outlet filter, this requires periodic cleaning according to your usage. Refer to your user manual re cleaning filter.

How do you cancel wash cycle on candy do df 800 the programme is stuck on filling up so have turned water supply off but cannot cancel programme

Good evening Julie
you have problems with your Candy, so have I with mine.it is mostly when I am starting a drying program, that she starts washing again. Then I :
  • turn the machine off
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
  • Turn on emptying
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
  • Turn on spinning
  • Wait 3-5 minutes
Try this way, turning the machine off, waiting and over to the programme you want.
good luck

The machine washes and spins but stops whenever it should be emptying the water- so now it is full of water and I need to empty it and fix it.

Check water level switch. may be the small tube that carries water to the switch assembley. Either clogged or air trapped. Pull it re fix it. it should become ok.

Before that fill the m/c with water manually. Switch off power supply to the washer and attempt. ( Safety precaution)

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....

if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Candy Model CE10 won't spin

It sound like the carbon brushes in the motor may need changing. It sohuld still be okay to get repaired, as most machines have generic brushes for all of thier models. It's worth calling an engineer and suggesting that the brushes have gone in the motor to get a quote on the repair job. Some engineers will come out and give you a free quote anyway.
