Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

Gfi outlet trips right before the final spin cycle. This is on a top load kenmore 80 series washer. I replaced the timer but the problem still exists. The timer seems to be in a pause mode. In other words,...


Motor driven appliances can trip GFI outlets when there is no problem at all with the appliance. When a large motor first starts, it draws more current for a short time and some GFI outlets will trip (others may not).

Are GFI outlets required by code in your state/county for washing machines? If not, replace the GFI with a standard outlet. If so, replace GFI with a higher quality GFI outlet.

How to stop my whirlpool washer from tripping gfi


If it is tripping the GFI I would say you have created a short somewhere. Check that wire has not been braised, check the plug for signs of burning, check outlet for signs of burning. Plug another device into the outlet to see if something else trips the GFI. If something else trips it then you could have a bad GFI outlet. These are the basics to try first but could be a number of things beyond this.

All of a sudden, no power. will not start, no warning.


Before looking into your built-in dishwasher as the problem, check your main electrical panel to see if you have tripped a circuit breaker. If not, you may have tripped a GFI receptacle located on or around your kitchen counter.  If so, reset it! Then try the dishwasher. However, if this IS the problem, this may become an ongoing problem. I agree with (and its code) having a GFI breaker in your kitchen.  But what I don't agree with is when the contractor/electrician who installed this, didn't take into consideration that when these GFI's are put in series with other receptacles (for added protection) in the kitchen, they trip more easily when plugged in with certain appliances because of the motors (eg. refrigerators, dishwashers, etc.) in them. The GFI's sole purpose is for protecting you around the sink where there's running water. It trips on milliamps so you won't get electrocuted around the sink. Also, if you have other appliances running at the same time the dishwasher's running, makes them more susceptible to trip. So in conclusion, first check for power. Second, check for GFI breaker (or vice versa). I believe you should find your problem here. If so, reset it and wait to see how and when this does it again. GFI breaker's are sensitive breakers. They tend to wear out before a regular outlet (receptacle) does. Not knowing how long and old this (GFI) receptacle is, I'd replace that if it happens more frequently. This usually does the trick. I hope it's not your built-in dishwasher. If so, feel free to contact me again, and I'll help you with that too. Good Luck with this, and I hope you get everything back in working order. Take care, Jim

When I plug in my dishwasher it trips my test fuse and none of my plug sockets work. Do I need a plumber or electrician?


Electrician. You have a short in the dishwasher which is an electrical problem. Is it tripping GFI outlet. If so the GFI is probably weak or overloaded. Try regular outlet not on the GFI circuit and see what happens.

The fridge keep tripping the GFCI. I reset it and one minute later it trips again. I even tried it on a different GFCI circuit, still trip. Thank you


Refigerators should NOT be on GFI-protected circuits. Problems have occasionally been reported when plugging a refrigerator, freezer or other motor-driven appliance into GFI-protected circuits. These appliances generally have a motor that pulls significant startup current. Due to the electrical characteristics of motors, the startup current can look like someone getting electrocuted, causing the protection system to trip. The best remedy is to connect these appliances to a non-GFI outlet. Usually outlets that are expected to serve such appliances will not have GFI's installed.
