Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
I have a Sears 90 series WM that "sometimes" throws my ground fault during spin cycles. Sometimes it doesn't happen for a couple of weeks then it will happen during every spin cycle. I have torn the machine down and am going to replace the transmission coupling because it looked like it needed it but I can't find the cause of the tripping of the ground fault. It makes sense that water is leaking somewhere and getting on electrical but I can't see any water damage or corrosion. Please help.
Pvatki, I am a licensed electrician and the NEC (national electrical code) does not require a clothes washer to be on a ground fault circuit interrupter. Replacing your gfci with a standard duplex receptacle will fix the problem you are having.
