Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer
I think that what you're seeing is a faulty water heating element. The element is kept switched off until the pressure switch (the thing on the end of the clear tube) detects that there's enough water in the machine for it to be safe to start heating without burning the element out. If the element is faulty, it will take out your earth leakage trip as soon as the pressure switch applies power(the usual failure mode is pinhole leaks in the element sheath, allowing water in to compromise the powdered mineral insulation inside). Confirm by running few cold wash cycles. If the machine works fine with these, but fails when you have a warm cycle selected, then element it is. The element lives in the bottom of the drum. You should be able to get a new one on the net for under £23. A.
