Indesit WI101 tripping Electric RCD

Hi,
I can plug it in and the power light will stay on, but as soon as I close the door and it tries to start a program, it trips the RCD. It is only just over 2 years old and gets light use, brushes in the motor are fine, I have checked for any obvious wiring fauls or wear, element is also fine, can anyone help??

    unplugged the motor and that seems to have stopped the washer tripping the RCD, thanks tresilla, I have taken off the motor and given it the once over, checked all connectors for corrosion dampness, damaged wires etc, all looks good inc the bushes, so I suppose this means I need a new motor?

Hi I have a indesit IWDC 6105 washer dryer. problem with door lock light. as soon a wash starts light goes off and wash stops and the door unlocks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It's possibly a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor becoming apparent with the extra movement of washing requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

what u need to do is tip the washer back and look underneath to see the motor look closely to check if it has carbon brushes if it does then these will need replacing has they will be worn but if it doesnt it will have a module this is a circuit board to the right handside at the back as you look to the back from the front it will be in a plastic cover with wires coming from it this will be faulty some of these are exspensive now all this depends on how old the washer is if its an oldish 1 then it will have a module if its a newish 1 eg less than 5years old it will have carbon brushes m8
