Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer
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..

Have you tried to plug your machine in a different socket try it if you can by using an extension instead of moving the machine.
