I once had a machine that would trip the power if it had an unbalanced load when it went to spin. Whirrr.... bang bang bang bang... click! Lights out.

HOWEVER, this is highly unusual. If the machine is tripping the power then you should take great care. either you have an electrical fault (The motor may be failing and burning out, or another component may be failing unsafe) or you may have a water leak from a defective hose somewhere that is getting electrical equipment wet. Just remember that water and electricity are a very un-funny mix and your trips are there for a good reason.

Does the machine trip the power as soon as it is powered on, even after standing for days (Probably an electrical fault)? Does it trip as a particular thing happens, such as moments after the water coming into the machine or as the drum starts to agitate or the spin cycle starts or as the water empties.

Here are a few suggestions. Having thought about when the fault trips the power, do the following:

TURN OFF THE POWER AND UNPLUG THE MACHINE FROM THE WALL. Isolate the water supply. Make sure that the machine is drained of water. Now it's safe, look for water leaks.

Take the top off the machine (Usually a couple of screws in the back and then the lid will tap forward or pull back depending on the model). Look for signs of water inside the chassis, where the water pipes run from the inlet valve to the soap tray. The rubber gasket around the door may also be cracked and leaking. A classic point for the start of a leak is the rear bearing of the drum (This is the centre of the big wheel of the drum), you may see water marks or limescale buildup that has dripped from the bearing if it is leaking.

If you are looking underneath for leaks, never tip the machine all the way onto its back, you may cause a water leak inside the machine. ALWAYS tip BACKWARDS, so the control panel for the machine is pointing up to avoid water getting to the control panel. I would recommend putting a chair behind the machine as you tip it, so the top back of the machine comes to rest on the seat and the machine is at about 45 degrees. this will give you access to underneath without a leak and make is a lot easier to tip it back on to its feet again afterwards.

While the machine is on its back, look at the motor, If you can, have a good sniff at it (Do you smell burned electrical equipment?) Look around for other components such as printed circuit boards, visually inspect and sniff them too.

The golden rule here is if you can see a leak and you can replace the part, then that's great, go ahead and Do It Yourself. BUT be sure that when you have finished everything is absolutely dry inside (Use a hairdryer if needs be). When you are absolutely sure it is all safe then prepare to test. With everything connected up turn on the mains and start the machine. ONLY TOUCH THE PLASTICS until you are sure it is working exactly as it should. Even then you should of course check to ensure that there is no electrical power leakage. If in doubt, it the power trips, if you have the slightest concern, get a professional in, Your family will prefer to pay for his visit rather than your funeral.
