This washer is about 15 years old but is in good condition generally. However it has started to leak out the door while it is filling, so I guess the inlet does not shut off when it should. There is no float switch in this model that I can see. What turns off the water inlet then ? I have cleaned the filters and all around it. There is what looks like a vent on the side of the unit just above the water level. This is full of "gunk" but I am not sure it can be removed to clean it. Anyway I cant see that it would affect the inlet shut off. Any help would be appreciated.

 Dishwasher not draining?

If your dishwasher will not drain the cause will often be that either the drain pump is blocked or faulty resulting in the dishwasher failing to empty. You can buy replacement drain pump including many low cost compatible dishwasher pumps in our store here to fit all major makes including AEG, Beko, Hotpoint, Smeg and many more

Anyone know what this part is? As you can see it is cracked and looks like it has overheated. The model is a Candy DSI710 from 2003 or thereabouts. It is fairly similar to bosch and hoover models.

I assume you mean burnt switch. :)

That is the mains suppressor or filter.

Available HERE

PS. Whilst it is exactly the same as a Hoover appliance it is nothing at all like a Bosch in any way, shape or form. :wink:

I have merged both of your posts re this appliance, I am not personally familiar with the Candy/Hoover dishwashers but hopefully one of the ex Hoover members may see this and respond.

I can see from your picture that the machine has a pressure switch (bottom left corner) and also a pressure controlled fill valve. Tracing those two thin clear plastic pipes to where they are attached to the sump may reveal a blockage.

Does it leak when washing or is it obviously overfilling before leaking out of the door before it starts washing?

Thanks for the help. It leaking occurs during the cycle, and not every time, but it is filling at the time. The leak is right across the bottom of the door.
One thing I noticed is there was a load of "gunk" in the water metering tank around the vent hole into the washer. I got it open and cleaned it out, but am having trouble putting it back together without it leaking where the metering tank meets the salt chamber.

Do you have any more numbers such as serial numbers etc from the rating plate.

I cannot bring up any tech info with only that model number. It is possible there is some type of seal between components that has failed.
Due to the high water temperatures in dishwashers and also due to age they will deteriorate.

As I mentioned I am not familiar with the Candy based dishwashers, unlike Hotpoint, Bosch, Zanussi, Indesit, Smeg etc they don’t seem very popular in this area.

Cancel that last question, I was searching for a DS1 not a DSI. :clown:

Will have a look at the tech and see if it shows any seals etc.

It does have three rubber ‘O’ rings that form the seals. These do leak even without being disturbed, a very common problem on Smeg dishwashers.
The part number for the rings is 91941698.

You should also change that mains filter before it goes off with a bang, it will do if you leave it.

Cheers mate. I saw the o-rings and they do seem to be a pretty loose seal. I will try replacing them and the capacitor also and let you know.

Had one of these Candy machines do this 7 years ago. As Iadom points out: see that big white sump smack in the middle as per your photo that will be where the internal and uncleanable air trap resides; easy to change this part ( order a new sump seal as well ) if you can still get the parts and if the rest of the machine is in reasonable nick, other than the blown suppressor which is no big deal money wise, well worth a bash compared with buying say, a new Bosch ( dreadful things: heat pump motors fail, sometimes several times ) as a replacement. I remember trying to clean the sump out but to be frank you never know how well you did since your working blind. The only thing you can do is change the sump. Brilliant for 15 years worth of use, well done, and look how easy it is to work on too; don`t get that these days!
