Washer/drier tripping rcd!

The machine is tripping the rcd on the fuseboard on either the washer or the drier settings. My thought was the element or motor. I guess the motor is commpn to both but is the element the same or are there two?
Many Thanks

Hi.
Sounds like you have a short or an earth fault.
if it trips right away, try it with the motor disconnected, if it still trips then you will probably have to call an engineer..

also check for a burned heating element, once you locate the element in the lower dish washer look i over for damage , you could also remove the wires from the lower element and then try ad see if it works ifthe unit works
replace the element

My Bosch Classixx 1200 washer causes the household RCD to trip


The first thing I would recommend u do is to remove the motor and check the carbons for wear, Their should be at least 3mm of carbon showing, any less then u shud replace.
The other possibility is a faulty heater element, u cud try it with the element disconnected, if it does not trip then the element is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.

It's unusual for a household RCD to go out on excess current from an appliance - the fuse in the plug top and circuit fuse/MCB in the consumer unit should provide closer protection. This leaves you with an earth fault. Earth faults aren't usually related to motor load. Watch carefully what phase of the cycle the trip happens. Does it correlate with the start of water heating? A very frequent cause of low current earth faults is water ingress into the heating element. If you can trip the RCD reliably on every cycle, running the same cycle with the element disconnected would confirm whether or not this is the cause. A.

Tripping out RCD


i had this probem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try - works for my machine, good luck.
