Hi the model code is GVS 169DC3-80. Thanks

At what point does - - become displayed as it often means not applicable ie you selected an option or configuration not available, such as spin speed on a drain programme.

If this is happening mid programme then this suggests a faulty on the controller.

Hi, it appears at the end of a cycle. When you check the washing it hasnt been spun this has happened on 1200 and 1600 spin speed. If you then do just a rinse and spin there is no problem. Just to add the 1200/1600 was selected on a program that allows that speed (in fact as I'm sure you know it only lets you select spin options that are relevant to the program.
If its not completing the cycle and displaying - -, this points to a fault on the PCB.
I would log a warrenty call with Candy so they can attend run diagnostics and arrange a replacement PCB.
Candy Warrenty line number is ***** 923 607. You will need the serial number which can be found on the inside of the washer door.
