Obviosly sound like the heating element is the problem, it is behind the machine in the lower rear of the drum. best to get it checked/replaced by someone who knows what they are doing as can leak if not done properly.

Fuse tripped switched on again mache continues cycle but washing cold


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It sounds by your comments that it is a cold fill only else I suspect you would have said ' not washing hot enough'. If it was a hot and cold fill, because rinses are normally cold anyway you probably would be unable to tell it was washing cold- unless the garments are not coming out clean;-0)
I would suggest that the heating element has 'malfunctioned' which would probably account for the fuse blowing/switch tripping so I would suspect that first. Fuses/switches don't react by themselves; they are forced to by faults of course.

Good luck,

John C

Simpson esprite 650 front loader washing machine. Electricity trips on programs b & h wash, can't complete cycle. Spinning and draining cycles OK. Why ? thanks sally


Hi Sally.Now in your posting you mentioned the machine trips the safety switch during the main wash.Is this correct?Does it trip as soon as the barrel stars to turn or a little later.Could you explain what b& h wash is.If the machine spins and drains and fills but trips during the cycle then from working on this model of machine I think the fault is your heating element.Have you tried a cold wash without any temp setting?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

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

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Hotpoint wd440 flashing dryer heat button and onoff button !


I had to have a tech come out for the same problem two weeks ago. They had to clean the lint collector which you cannot get to on your own. He said now that this has been done everytime I use the machine, take the clothes out and then run a rinse spin cycle.
