Having problems with your Candy 17 in. CS455 Built-in Dishwasher ?

The Dial will stop in middle cycle and the dishwasher is then stuck doing the same cycle for hours until i switch it off! Is It the dial because everything else seems thing?

Hi.

Re:"Is It the dial because everything else seems thing?"

It is not necessarily the dial. The dial is expensive and difficult to test directly, before replacing it you test any other possible cause. From now onward I will call the dial CCU (central control unit).

Before replacing the dial check:

Inlet, water temperature and thermostat.
This is most likely cause if dishwasher hangs in the middle of the cycle.Ensure that water is hot. If there is no hot water, check water inlet line and inlet valve.
Have a look at inlet lines at the back ensuring that they are not kinked or blocked.
Even if there is hot water the thermostat must be tested. The thermostat must read zero impedance at room, and cut at limit temperatures below 80C, reading open when hot. If thermostat does not open, then the cycle will not advance as CCU does not detect water is at temp.

Pressure switch.
This is located near to the drain hose, and detects water level. If problem is pressure switch you get cycle hanging in drain. Pressure switch is difficult to test and cst relatively little money, it gets replaced if the problem is water level related.

Door latch.
It must always be tested by running a cycle with contacts jumped.

The anti-flood (aquasafe) device located at the base of the unit may also cause cycle stopping, in that case the machine will stay off from a point onward, with light still on but not cycling. The device is tested in full by jumping it.

Some of the tests above are suitable for a technician, if you need to call a repairman, call Candy service number listed on manual.

Our GE Triton Dishwasher, mod# GSD5620D01BB is 10 years old. A problem started two days ago where; when it runs through a normal washing cycle; it contuously beeps about every 1 second when it reaches the Drying Cycle and the LED Green light flashes next to the Drying . I reset the breaker and tried again; same thing happened as it went through the normal cycle and when it reached the Drying part; same thing happened. The dishwasher is cleaning and everything else seems to be working fine.

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles. Unit is old and wondering if it's better to buy a new one rather than fix this and have something else go wrong in the not to distant future. Thanks in advance

Cycles improperly My dishwasher does not cycle properly. It races through the cycles, even when set to pots & pans, in about ten minutes. At first I thought it not filling properly, checked the fill switch, it's fine and water does come in. Then when it's finished it does not always drain completely. I have checked everything on the drain end as well. It seems to have a mind of it's own. I replaced the $145 computer control with no luck. It actually sped up from the original 16 minute ful

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Dishwasher smoking Started cycle, everything seemed fine. Opened it to put something in and when I closed it to restart it sounded strange. Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

Tricity Bendix DH090 water valve closes too early. Insufficient water causes program to stop before first heating cycle. If I switch off, open the machine & pour an extra pint of water in, shut the door & switch on again the wash takes place and completes perfectly to specification. OK so the problem seems to be that level detector No 1 switches off the water inlet valve early and level detector No 2 (apparently) halts the cycle since it detects insufficient water in the machine. I cannot see t

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Incomplete cycle My Miele dishwasher (3 to 4 years old) finishes, leaving the dishes dirty and wet. It seems that it may only be running through part of the cycle - I'm not sure but from the time I set it going to the time it switches off, it seems shorter than usual. The dishwasher is not emptying as it has a pool of water in the bottom. I have tried various settings and have the same problem. the inlet/drain light DOES NOT come on. I have soaked up all the residue on the bottom and cleaned out
