Ok that rules out the heating element. There are a number of possible causes so bear with me while i go through them.
Can you open the door? If so leave it open then turn on the machine. Does it trip?

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

SOURCE: 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

Hoover ac 120 washing machine trips power


Have you tested the actual path from the breaker box? Meaning have you made sure that you have the amp breaker? Have you put an ohm meter on the "dead wire" (make sure there is no power on the leads and test the copper)? Have you made sure that the power neutral and power ground are not swapped (there is a test plug that is cheaply bought at the hardware store)? Have you check the wiring diagram for the machine and made sure the machine is wired right (found online usually)?

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.
