There is obviously an electrical problem that is causing the trip to operate try it in another socket, then check the plug , if o/k, then it is a case of open ing the washer up to try and locate the prob,
At this stage, it literally could be anything, from a faulty motor, faulty heater, faulty suppressor, the list is endless.
Plz rate my comments.
Thanks.

Look at any uninsulated or exposed wire, beside look at the seal (in this case water seal, somekind of rubber that prevent the water from leaking then flowing into live wire connection)...if the wire is broken, due to the mouse bite (normally this is the couse), you can tape it or insulated it with 'black tape', but make sure the suppy is unconnected and the power is off. an if the seal is broken, you may need help from services company to repair it.

Why would my malber WD 1000 keep tripping the breaker during drying cycle


breaker tripping is caused by an overload ( amps x voltage = watts). If the breaker is- for example -10 amperes and the voltage is 120 volts it equals 1,200 watts of power consumption and if the device is pulling more than the 10 amps setting of the breaker then, it will tripp. Just check how many amps is used by the device and if it is hooked to an electrical outlet that has a lower amps rating than the device then, it will tripp. Look for another electrical outlet that will support the device amps usage and give it a try to find if it does not tripp. If it still does then you may need to take it to a rapair facility to verify if there is any short within the device

Washing machine trips electric when fills with water


From the symptons described, I would suspect that the heating element is faulty, disconnect the heater, and try it again, if it does not trip, then replace heater.

Washing machine keeps tripping electric switch


Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Hoover 2305 washine machine wont spin


Your problem could be caused the interlock but it could also be that the machine is failing to drain in the time alllowed and therefore the machine will not spin, before buying a lock check the sump hose and pump area for blockages.
