Turn washer dryer on ok, then close door then curcuit trips

Hi i have a hotpoint wd420 washer dryer, problem is it tripped the main fuse board, the unit powers up ok and lights are on, but as soon as i close the door to wash or dry it trips the breaker again. i have cleaned the filter out and didnt see anything unusual in there, the unit was working fine and has not been disturbed for awhile so nothing could of come loose etc.
thanks for any advice

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

Washing machine has blown a fuse and tripped the curcuit breaker


I hate to say this but a blown fuse in that machine wouldnt trip the breaker, so if you turn the breaker on and it stays on until you start the machine the motor is probably shorted and need to be replaced

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

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen
