    No, it was about half way through a rinse cycle when it tripped the main circuit board.

  • michele_hill Jan 26, 2009

    I plugged the washing machine in over the weekend, before I opened the door and switched it on at the socket, it tripped again.

    Porblem solved, it was a spring that is attached to the drum that had broken and was earthing.

Ok that rules out the heating element. There are a number of possible causes so bear with me while i go through them.
Can you open the door? If so leave it open then turn on the machine. Does it trip?

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current

Hotpoint washing machine keeps tripping electric


First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!

Washing machine tripping everything in the house


Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
motor
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!
