Reading The Candy Washing Machine Fault Code

The error code is displayed as a digital code, exactly as you will see below, you will get a blinking or flashing light on the front of the washing machine and the number of flashes determines the fault number, so you need to count them up. The flashes will then pause for approximately five seconds then the sequence of flashes will repeat.

Please also note that many of the codes highlight that wiring faults can cause the error being reported, this can include faulty or dirty connections as well as physical wiring damage or loose connection blocks etc.

Candy Washing Machine Diagnostic Routine

  • Push and hold the FIRST Option Button with LED top right
  • Turn the Program's Selector Knob 2 steps in clockwise sense
  • After about 5 seconds, release the FIRST Option Button with LED to the left
  • If the previous procedure was correctly carried out, all LEDs are turned ON simultaneously

Test Sequence

    • Water is loaded to fulfill the "basic" level of 6 liters, through the Detergent's Compartment for Pre-wash
    • 1 second of pause. • It's now fed for 20 seconds, the Water Heating Element (~8 A on the Digital Ammeter)
    • Timed water load is carried out through the Detergent's Compartment for Main Wash
    • It's fed the Motor for the tumbling of the Drum in Anticlockwise sense at 55 rpm and for the time of ~ 16 seconds
    • Pause of the Motor for ~ 4 seconds.
    • The timed water load continues, as previous
    • Are simultaneously fed the Solenoid Valve for Water Load through the Washing Compartment and the Motor for the tumbling of the Drum in Clockwise sense at 55 rpm, for the time of ~ 12 seconds.
    • In the last seconds of this phase, the timed water load is done with the simultaneous feeding of both Solenoid Valves, to end it trough the Detergent's Compartment for Softener
    • It's fed the Drain Pump, until "empty tank" Pressostat's condition.
    • It's carried out a Short Spin Phase, lasting ~ 15 seconds, at the half of the maximum speed available and then the Self-diagnostic sequence is ended
