Question about Hotpoint Ultima WDM73 Front Load Washer / Dryer
Ran a high temperature programme last night and half way through the machine tripped my fuses. It now trips my fuses whenever I close the door, whether the machine is on or off. If the door is open, I can turn the machine on and it appears to be able to be programmed etc. But as soon as the I close the door...pop...it trips my fuses. The machine is about 14 months old and we haven't had a problem with it before.

something is going down to earth, start by unplugging the motor and retesting, if it doesn't trip them check the motor carbons etc, if it trips then check the heater element for contact down to earth, replace if needed etc, then check the outlet pump the same way if i have helped rate me please ps when working on machine remove from power supply

f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.

You have a fault on the machine which is a dead short or an earth leakage.
Neither can be sorted out without a set of testers and some knowledge
Unless you can get hold of a resistance checker and know how to use it call a in a repair person

run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current
