SOURCE: asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.

It Can be brushes or motor ir the wear is uneven if the machine has a lwr board next to the motor ( chopper board) it could also need replacing with the motor

Try to Open the safety compartment using a screwdriver under the wash machine in the front.
Then open the big white knodb this will cause the wate to drain out which is fine.
Then clean this out. Usually you will find coins and stuff here from years of operations from pockets. clear these out and your problem maybe fixed. worked for us

The machine has been working well but recently when switched on now trips the whole house safety circuit.


Try plugging something else into the outlet socket to see if that throws the trip fuse. If it does then the outlet is faulty. Try plugging the washer into another outlet and see if it throws the trip in which case the machine is suspect.

Keeps tripping power at 13minutes remaining, just before the spin cycle


Hello. It sounds like the motor has gone bad--possibly a shorted part of the motor, or a jammed drain pump. It also could be the transmission binding at the point of going into spin mode. You didn't provide a brand/model number so my help is limited. The clue here is the clicking before the power trip.

Hoover primera washing machine keeps tripping electrics when tured on.


Possible that there is higher current drain which trips off the circuit. This can be due to moisture or dampness in the circuit , coils or the motor. You need to remove the top panel and dry using a dryer. check the connectors, check the main line , the motor circuit. Isolation of the motor or the heater can confirm the short if the circuit stays. Check the main power to the panel and allied circuit for possible capacitor leak or short.

My indesit washing machine 12 hundred keeps flashing blue and red lights and won't do anything


Possible that the suspect could be the controller board, you can switch the machine off power for sometime, check the power outlet for the correct voltage. If not the front panel must be removed to check on the board and a possible fault of the processor or memory.

Washing machine trips electric when fills with water


From the symptons described, I would suspect that the heating element is faulty, disconnect the heater, and try it again, if it does not trip, then replace heater.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Keeps tripping the electric


A few possibilities here,if wash element is grounding in Kohms this will trpp breaker,disconnect element and see will electrics trip,burnt terminals is also possibility at any point in washer especially at feed connections,grounding drain pump or motor windings can also cause tripping,disconnect also and then check,damp spots around electrics can also indicate water leaking onto electric components.safety guidlines and procedures should always be followed when checking and repairing electrical equipment

Washing machine keeps tripping electric switch


Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

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.

SWITCH THE POWER OFF FIRST
