Error E03 in Kandy washing machines

error e03 in Kandy washersIf your Candy washing machine stops with a full tank of water, and the code E03 appears on the display, we will tell you what to do.

In this article, we will not only describe the causes of this error, but also try to present an algorithm for repairing a malfunction.

Decryption and reasons

On a Kandy washing machine, error E03 indicates the absence of a drain. Within 3 minutes, the machine tries to drain the waste water, but for some reason this does not happen, respectively, the laundry freezes. And the reasons for this are as follows:

  • clogged drain system;
  • partial or complete breakdown of the pump;
  • malfunction of the pressure switch.

The easiest way in this situation is to check the machine for blockages. First you need to drain the water from the tank. This is done through the emergency drain hose located next to the drain filter, or through the filter itself. In this case, you will need a capacious low capacity and rags to collect water. Cleaning the filter from debris consists in washing it under running water.

What to do with the pump

If the cause of the E03 error on the Cady is not in the clogging of the filter, then we proceed to check the drain pump. Disconnect the equipment from the electrical network and communications, put it on a free place, then proceed to work:

  • using a screwdriver, remove the lower decorative strip from the latches, behind which there is a drain filter and the pump itself;
  • unscrew the drain filter and pull it out, note that water may leak onto the floor;
  • unscrew the two self-tapping screws that you will see behind this bar, a pump is held on them;
  • tilt the washing machine or put it on its side, because the pump will have to be pulled out through the bottom;
  • carefully disconnect the pipes and the electrician, remember the location of the clamps;

    At the same time, you can check for debris in the nozzles and rinse them in water.

    pump replacement

  • unscrew the 3 screws that connect the snail and pump;
  • see if there is any hair on the impeller; remove all debris. Perhaps the blockage caused the malfunction and you do not have to buy a new spare part;
  • then check the electric part of the pump with a multimeter, when you make sure that it is faulty, take a new part for the Candy washing machine and replace it with the old one;
  • reassemble the machine in the reverse order.

Damage to the drain pump in the machines of this brand, one of the most common malfunctions. Other characteristic failures can be found in the article. Repair of malfunctions of washing machines Candy.

Pressure switch failure

In the event of a malfunction of the pressure switch, the water drain is also disrupted, because the control module does not receive a signal about the water level in the tank. As a result, the sediment does not receive a command to drain the water. Replacement of this part on a Candy machine can also be carried out without involving a master. But do not rush to buy a spare part. The fact is that the cause may not be the pressure switch itself, but the contacts on it. They need to be cleaned and checked.

The water level sensor is located in the upper part of the washing machine, so it will be enough to remove the top cover of the housing.

pressure switch in the washing machineIn addition, the cause may be a tube going from the pressure switch to the tank, it is also called a pressure tube, it can fly off or break. It is enough to replace the tube or clamp and the cause will be eliminated. If the tube and contacts are intact, then check the pressure switch itself with a multimeter. In the event of a malfunction, replace the water level sensor with a new one.

As you can see, the E03 error on Candy can be eliminated at home. If you know what to do, you can manage for about 40 minutes. But if you doubt your abilities, it is better to contact a professional, in this case he will be able to carry out repairs at home.

    Everything turned out just fire! I cleaned the rubber pipes, thank you very much!

    The drain pump is constantly cracking, what could it be? He writes eo3 after the first day of use.

    • Gravatar Nikolay Nikolay:

      A replacement pump, if there is nothing extraneous in it, is cracking either from foreign objects or from wear of the shaft with the impeller. If you find one, just change it. Pay special attention to how the contacts are connected to it, there are simply 2 types: paired and separate. Good luck

  3. Gravatar Olya Olya:

    Bought a washing machine. Spin does not occur. It stops and blinks on the button opposite the allergy and that's it. What to do?

  4. Gravatar Andrey Andrew:

    I got an error e03 due to the squeezed out of the stem of the impeller of the pump. Put in place, it worked.

  5. Gravatar Elena Helena:

    Tell me what pump code for Candy CTD 866? Or brand of drain motor?

  6. Gravatar Igor Igor:

    I have the same problem (error E03). He did everything described above (replaced all parts with new ones), but alas. The answer lay in a completely different place - replacing the heating element!

    • Gravatar Constantine Konstantin:

      There was an error 16, I bought a new heater, again error 16 or 03. It turned out to be a defective heater. Check out new parts.

    • Gravatar Anton Anton:

      Igor, you are right. Ten begins to punch on the hull. At first I took it out and just cleaned it from scale. This was enough for several months. But here again.
