Question about Candy 24 in. CD622 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Timer not advancing

My Candy CD623 dishwasher has stopped working. The Timer does not advance no matter which programme I use. It fills with water and then stops. If I advance it myself it appears to function o.k. i.e. the motor goes, water comes out of the arms, the arms spin and I can also advance it to drain. I have checked the wiring to the timer but it all looks O.K.

 

I have not checked the thermostat or element but I would not have thought this would cause the timer not to advance anyway. Am I right assuming this?

 

Could there be a fuse supplying power to the timer? If so where is it located. I feel it is likely to be the timer itself but I would like a second opinion before buying and fitting a new one.

 

Thanks

Jason

Jallen, your troubleshooting skills are right on. The timer itself is the problem... specifically, the motor that drives the timer cams. Unfortunately you have to replace the whole timer, not just the motor.

You asked about a fuse that might supply power to it. No. The timer gets its power from a redundant switch assy at the door lock. If even one of these switches fails, no power at all will be sent to the timer... therefore, you'd get no power to any other component. Since all other functions of the DW are working OK, you can safely diagnose it with having a failed timer.

Good job!

Try resetting the machine to factory settings, most dishwashers have this in their instruction manuals at the rear of the manual. If no luck with this you will need to get a tech in to check the sensors and main board

Actually every dishwasher I've worked on had one water inlet and it was always for hot water. Approximately 3 gallons per cycle.

Water is not being taken in on our candy Aquaviva CD 623 dishwasher


First check and see if there is plenty of water coming into the machine by examining the fill hose inself.
You likely will have to disconnect that hose, not at the machine end, the sink end.
Then, find a way to test the wires to the fill valve, should likely be 110 volts when the machine starts, allowing the fill valve to open.
A volt-ohm meter will tell you, set it to over 110 volts on the A.C. setting.
If no power to the fill valve, you may be facing a new timer.
Be blessed.

I need the operating instructions for a candy aquaviva cd623 dishwasher. Can anyone help with a pdf version I can download?


I am sorry to hear that you have problems with a candy dishwasher. I have had two or three pieces they just died of old age.
But seriously on line there is this manualsonline.com
You will most certainly find your candy manual there for downloading free.
Goodluck

I have a candy cdi 3515 and after about 1/2 an hour into the programme it stops and a continuous alarm bleeping starts.


Is there water in the dishwasher when it stops?
Are you able to check if the water is normal temperature or warm/ hot?

Can you try the dishwasher in a short cycle and see if it completes the cycle?

I appear to have solved this problem. Firstly I slightly adjusted the door catch on the actual machine, the strong wire bit, outwards. Then I undid the screws on the top part of the door exposing the electrics of the dial and door micro switch. I noticed that the microswitch (the small metal part pushed in and let out by the plastic arm rotated when opening and shutting the door) was dirty or rusty. I sprayed a little WD40 on this and played with the door catch a few times. I then screwed everything back in to place and the machine works perfectly. Easy and quick and a lot cheaper than the £80 I had just been quoted by a service person to come and change the switch mechanism as he called it!

My dishlex dishwasher overflows


The only part that physically allows water to enter a dishwasher (upon receiving power from the control) is the inlet water-valve. I would test the inlet water-valve located directly where you in-coming water line is connected to.

Shut-off power to the dishwasher and remove the 2 prong connection to the water-valve solenoid (small, black, batter size). Test the solenoid for continuity; if bad, replace the entire inlet water-valve (cost about $20)
