ZANUSSI 1237 Washing Machine

Almost every time I switch on the socket to the machine, (and before the machine itself is switched on) it trips the RCD. Two independent electricians have tested all my circuits and have concluded that there is a fault on the machine which causes a surge in power which results in a leakage which causes the trip on the RCD. Has this been found before - the machine has had this fault throughou is 16 months of service. Once the RCD has been reset (with the power established) the machine works perfectly well.t

Hi there , this is a tricky one as you say when everything is reset the thing works fine. The RDC is measuring imbalance in the power line. and will trip if out of balance. there is a slight inconsistency in your description which leads me to suspect the RFI suppressor may be at fault . This remains live when power is on but machine off. this may have a grounded electrolytic capacitor in the line which may upset the startup balance. to check try restarting the machine several times . As such it is not a fault rather a mismatch in sensetivity .. one solution leave power on at the wall socket and plugged in..

Zanussi washing machine trips rcd on spin


Hi Ian.
I am assuming your RCD is fitted in your consumer unit (fuse-box)?
If so, then the chances of this being the cause is minimal. The RCD trips wen electricity is not balanced between live and neutral wires - which means some is leaking out to elsewhere - which it shouldn't because it is dangerous.
It would have helped if you had indicated how old your machine is, and how much use it has had but I am currently leaning towards the motor have several winding options that kick in (or not) depending on the spin speed. It would therefore be a motor fault, or something as simple as the brushes are disintegrating (which is often accompanied by hesitant and intermittent behaviour from the motor). These types of faults mean that some of the electricity may be leaking to the motor casing and then to earth.
I would recommend you call an engineer or if you have decent DIY skills, locate a replacement motor (ebay or the likes) and swap it out.
Good luck
David

THE RCD SWITCH is concealed on the inner side of the hindges of the door or on the top innerside of the door. it is a simple push switch which has a mechanism of push to on/off
this switch has got stuck in off position.
