Frequent tripping means a short in the machine. Disconnect from the supply and locate the drain plug somewhere at the bottom of the machine. You should be able to drain off the water and then open the door manually. Be prepared for a lot of water to be released. The fault will have to be fixed by a service engineer.

checked internal wiring and found that when the machine went out of balance the counter balance on the top of the agitator drum had squashed the power wire against the the top rib of the frame causing the wire to short circuit and blow the power fuses to the house.
rejoined the power witr and relocated it above the rib frame so as to eliminate any further possibility of this happening again.
I believe this is either a design fault with the machine or it was incorrectly installed at the time of manufacture

My machine would not switch on this morning, no beeps or lights, I traced it to a small fuse on the main circuit board. you get to the board by disconecting from the mains, removing 2 crosshead screws at the back of the machine and lifting the top of the machine off ( once screws out, slide top of machine back about 1cm and then it just lifts off. You can now see the main circuit board, behind the control panel on front of machine. the fuse is hard to see and is solderd to the board on the lower left side, I solderd onto both ends of the fuseand replaced with a 10 amp HRC fuse, I still need to find the correct fuse rating, this worked for my machine.
However, and its a big however, If the 13amp fuse in youre plug blew and the trip on youre consumer unit, then I would imagine something big (pulling a large current) has gone down in youre machine to cause all these to blow, anyway hope this helps, Robin.
