My candy grand O 1282 washing machine gets part way through a cycle and then stops with the lights flashing in sequences of 8. I'd be very grateful if anyone knows what this is trying to tell me? Thanks, David.
Fault codes are only a guide. 8 flashes can indicate a motor tacho problem (open or short circuit on the tacho or associated wiring). In the worst event it could also be a pcb issue. You could try removing the motor & check the tacho coil resistance. 3 different motors types were used in the production this model: A Ceset motor tacho should read 42 ohms - Hoover motor 156 ohms - & Sole motor 184 ohms. You should also check for a loose shaft magnet at the same time. The tacho assembly is fitted to the non-drive end of the motor, it has 2 thin leads out to the motor plug.
