Question about Washing Machines
The 30 mA trip blows when the machine is speeding up the spin. This does not happen if the machine is empty. It happens in a rinse, spin and drying cycle.

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

Someone with a wattmeter needs to read the wattage load by the machine when washing. If the running load is greater than the rated load of the machine, then the problem is likely the motor itself or the drum bearings are going bad. If the electrical load is normal, then the breaker in the house electrical panel is either under-rated, or the breaker is defective. If the breaker is a 'ground fault' type, the washer may have current leakage to ground causing the breaker to trip. Another possibility is that there is another outlet that is on the same circuit and the combined load trips the breaker. Shut the breaker off and try any other sockets in the area to see if they went dead too. Hope this helps!

The washing machine is obviously
drawing too much current for the breaker to handle. This could be due to the
washing machine drawing more that it should or because the breaker cannot
handle the current the machine needs, coupled with the other machines on the
ring main. If the fuse on the plug of the washing machine does not blow, then it
could be that there are too many appliances on the ring main. The fuse on the
machine may not blow however, if the breaker has a faster blow time than the
fuse in the plug. Try plugging the washing machine into another ring main. Or
try plugging out all the other appliances on the same ring main and test it
If the ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit
Breaker) is tripping only when the washing machine is running then something in
the machine is faulty.
One common problem is the heating element. Over time they tend to crack and when the water gets in, the ELCB will trip out. This can be problematic to diagnose as offten the element will only trip after a period of heating. Bottom line, if it is tripping the ELCB then it is dangerous and should be fixed before any further use.
