Having problems with your Candy Dishwashers ?

Hi I have a Candy cd242 dishwasher all of a sudden it has stopped washing, I found that the feed hose had a kink in it so have re- routed that. But now the timer appears to go around but only part runs each section of the programmes, and then just ticks the rest of the time. Does any one know the problem or could it be a over filling valve that has sent a message to the controller. If so how do I re-set that. I would appreciate any-ones help to [email protected] cheers simon

Leaky Tub our dishwasher was leaking quite a bit. i checked all the hoses, and connections, it turns out that there were two screws from underneath protruding into the tub, near the rear on either side. If any one knows if the tub could be fixed or replaced could you let me know? Also if this was a manufacturing problem shouldn't sears be responsible?

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

GE ZBD6880KOOSS This just happened this morning. The dishwasher is less than 2 yrs old. The dishwasher will not operate, the panel lights do not come one and it simply make a continual low pitch tone sound. Do you know what could be the problem?


This is an unusual failure. The humming could be a motor (or valve) that has power but isn't moving. But that doesn't explain the (absence of) lights on the control panel. I suggest you call a professional. ... GE Monogram® ZBD6880NSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Blowing fuse... We've replaced the overheating fuse located in the control board area about 5 times. It has just blown again after using the dishwaser one time--before it would go about a month before blowing the fuse. It seems to get about a few minutes away from completing the wash cycle and does not complete the draining process. Help!! We don't know what to do next--replacing the fuse is costing about $15 each time, before you know it we could have bought a new one! Thanks for the help. Ti


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. T ... Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

Burning smell from our Dishwasher. I opened it up and found a little square brown thing attached to the motor - It has a terminal at one end that a white with a coloured stripe cable attaches to via a slip on terminal and 2 terminals to slot the little unit directly into the motor. Anyway, this little unit has obviously burnt out and this is the problem. Except my problem is that I dont know what this little unit is, so dont know what to ask for at the spare parts centre. Can anyone identify

My LG dishwasher -LDF7810st has been a huge problem from the beginning. However I will just focus on the current issue. Previously it was leaking and I kept towels under the dishwasher. Then one night there was a deluge of water all over the place. One guy says the seal is bad then another no its the whole seal around the dishwasher is bad. No one seems to know and I dont want to spend $250 to find out. I remember a previous post that said their was a design flaw with a part of this but cannot f

Detergent sticks in main wash compartment. We use cascade complete with bleach (hydroclean action). When this problem started, I switched to cascade complete (liquid) and still same thing happens. The dishwasher is only 3 1/2 yrs old. Have used cascade complete since day one. Only difference is that this one is the one with the bleach. Could this be the prob? We have noticed that it is thicker that just the cascade complete. But thought the liquid would of fixed that prob. Agh frustrated. We hav

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.

One of my drawers is not draining completely all of a sudden... Recently, the unit started making a grinding sound during one of its cycles. Now, it doesn't drain completely. I took out the filter plate with motor assembly and found that the underside was a bit chewed up. Not sure if this could cause the draining problem. Any thoughts?


That sounds like it could very will be the problem, also check to make sure drain hose is not clogged by blowing down it. should be able to blow free and clear. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

We have a leak on the pump around the manafold and the gearbox. Has anyone had this problem that you know of? Could it be that the packing has gone out? The washer is 2 to 3 years old and runs great just need to repair this problem to put it back into service.

Leaking This is a problem that I have when the dishwasher is in drying mode. I will find a 5X5 and sometimes smaller, size water spot under the dishwasher after the dishwasher has stopped. I was told it was the vent were the steam comes out and I had that replaced. It still leaks, then they told me to replace the rubber around the door, still leaks now they order a whole new plastic interior door.

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

The adapter on my maytag portable dishwasher comes off the faucet when I try to run it sending water everywhere! We JUST replaced the adapter and hoses, $50 and not the problem. It seems that the plastic pieces (not metal balls) are wearing out as soon as they're used. Does anybody know what I can do or if that isn't the problem, could it be that I have the wrong end on my faucet????? HELP!!
