Candy Washing Machine Won’t Stop Spinning — How To Fix
If your Candy washing machine won’t stop spinning, you’ll need to replace the drum bearing. Here’s how to do this…
Step 1. Ensure that you unplug your washing machine from its power source and turn off the water supply before attempting any repairs in order to prevent water leakage and electrocution.
Step 2. Disconnect the water inlet hose from the back of your washing machine. Pull the detergent drawer out and press the blue tab at the center to release it from the washing machine.
Step 3. Use a nut driver to take out the three nuts at the back of your washing machine holding the top panel. Slide the top panel back and lift it off your washing machine.
Step 4. Use your nut driver to take out the screws holding the rear panel of your washer. Pull the rear panel off and set it aside.
Step 5. Take a picture of all the electrical connectors attached to the control board mounted on the cabinet frame and carefully disconnect each one. Use a nut driver to take out the nuts holding the board to the frame.
Step 6. Use a socket wrench to take out the two bolts holding the counter-weight to the top of the drum. Pull the counter-weight off the drum and set it aside.
Step 7. Use a pair of pliers to press and slide the retaining clamps on the hoses connected to the soap dispenser out of place. Disconnect the hoses from the dispenser.
Step 8. Take out the nuts on each of the top corners of the user control panel. Use a screwdriver to take out the two screws beside the detergent drawer housing. Detach the soap dispenser from the control panel.
Step 9. Use a pair of pliers to press the clamps on the remaining hoses connected to the dispenser and slide them out of place. Disconnect the hoses from the soap dispenser and set the dispenser aside.
Step 10. Open the door of your washing machine. Wedge a flat-blade screwdriver under the retaining band around the door boot seal and work your way around until the entire band comes off.
Step 11. Reach in through the top of your washer and use a screwdriver to take out the screw holding the inner retaining band to the tub opening. Pull the door boot seal and the inner retaining band off the tub, then set it aside.
Step 12. Carefully release the five tabs holding the user control panel from the back. Disconnect the electrical connectors attached to the user control panel and set the panel aside (ensure that you take note of where each wire connector goes).
Step 13. Go to the back of your washing machine and pull the drive belt off the pulley wheel at the rear of the tub. Disconnect the electrical connectors of the heater, motor, and thermostat (ensure that you take note of where each connector goes).
Step 14. Use a socket wrench to take out the two bolts holding the motor to the tub. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to carefully pry the motor off the tub and set it aside.
Step 15. Use a pair of pliers to press the clamp on the tub-to-pump hose attached to the tub and slide it out of place. Detach the pump from the hose. Disconnect the air pressure tube from the water pressure switch.
Step 16. Carefully lift the tub out of your washing machine and set it aside. Use a socket wrench to take out the bolts holding the front counter-weight and pull the counter-weight off the tub.
Step 17. Use a screwdriver to undo all the screws at the front of the tub holding the two halves of the drum together. Using a flat-blade screwdriver, carefully pry both halves of the drum apart.
Step 18. Turn the bottom half of the drum upside down and place some wood on the floor to support the drum. This will prevent the metal part of the tub from touching the floor.
Step 19. Use a socket wrench to take out the bolt at the center of the pulley wheel (you will need to jam the pulley with a screwdriver to make it easier for you to take out).
Step 20. Lift the pulley off the shaft on the rear of the tub. Put the bolt back onto the shaft and tighten the nut until the top of the shaft is on the same level as the top of the shaft.
Step 21. Put a wooden board on top of the nut and use a mallet to hit the nut squarely on the top until the shaft falls through. Once the shaft has fallen out, take the nut off again. You can now lift the outer tub out of the inner tub.
Step 22. Turn the outer tub upright and lay it on the supporting pieces of wood. Use a drift and mallet to knock the outer bearing out of the tub. Turn the tub upside down and use the drift and mallet to knock the inner bearing (this will require more effort).
Step 23. Carefully clean the bearing housing. Insert the larger bearing from inside the outer tub and insert the smaller bearing from the back of the tub. Take your new tub bearing set out of its packaging. Carefully knock the new bearings into place.
Step 24. Put the tub bearing seal in place from inside the tub and carefully tap it into place. Turn the outer tub over and carefully drop it onto the shaft on the inner drum.
Step 25. Put the pulley wheel onto the shaft and apply the bolt at the center to secure it (ensure that you tighten is as much as possible by hand).
Step 26. Put some silicon bead around the front cover of the drum and fit the drum seal around the cover. Put the front of the drum onto the main part of the drum and apply the screws to secure the two halves of the drum.
Step 27. Put the front counter-weight back onto the drum and apply the bolts with your socket wrench to secure it. Carefully lift the tub into your washing machine. Ensure that the suspension rods in your washing machine snap into place on the tub.
Step 28. Pull the springs at the top of the drum and hang them at the onto your washing machine’s cabinet frame.
Step 29. Connect the tub-to-pump hose to the drum and press and slide the retaining clamp in place. Reconnect the air pressure tub from the drum to the water pressure switch.
Step 30. Put the motor assembly back in place underneath the tub and apply the two bolts secure it. Connect each electrical connector to its appropriate terminal on the motor. Reconnect the thermostat and heater electrical connectors.
Step 31. Fit the drive belt back around the pulley and motor. Reconnect the electrical connectors to the user control panel and snap it into place at the front of your washing machine.
Step 32. Open the door of your washing machine and fit the door seal back around the tub. Fit the inner retaining band around the seal and apply the screw on the band to secure it.
Step 33. Fit the outer part of the door seal around the door opening and run the outer retaining band around the door seal (you’ll probably need a flat-blade screwdriver to do this).
Step 34. Connect the hoses to the soap dispenser and slide the retaining clamps into place. Put the soap dispenser back in place. Put the counter-weight back on top of the drum and apply the two bolts to secure it.
Step 35. Connect the electrical connectors to their appropriate terminals on the control panel and snap the panel into place. Apply the four screws to secure the control panel.
Step 36. Mount the control board on the cabinet frame and apply the bolts to secure. Connect the electrical connectors back to the board.
Step 37. Put the rear panel of your washing machine back on and apply the screws to secure it. Slide the top panel back on and apply the three screws to secure it.
Step 38. Plug your washing machine back to its power source and turn on the water supply. Make sure everything is working properly by running a wash cycle.
