Hi Gary, It is possible that your ground fault plug is at fault itself. Sometimes the GFIB becomes weak and will trip off without there being a real problem. Some GFIB are rated at 15 amperes and some are rated at 20 amperes. I would recommend that you check it out and make sure that your GFIB is rated at 20 amperes and is new. Even though a GFIB might be rated at 20 amperes, the fault condition that allows the GFIB to trip is a very small amount of current detected between the safety ground...the round hole and the neutral (the larger vertical blade). The 'trigger' circuit is looking for any current flow between the safety ground wire and the neutral wire and that will probably be in the range of 100 milliamperes and above. FYI, refrigerators and washing machines do not like GFIB's
Bottom Line: You can make your washer operate on your GFIB plug by using a ground buster which is an adapter which you plug your washer power cord into the ground buster and the ground buster into the wall receptable. Please keep in mind that if you use a ground buster.....your washer will not have a safety ground. Hope this helps you! Handy Henry
