    I have tried other appliances in the power point without any problem. Have run an extension cord to another circuit from washing machine, as soon as power point turned on trips that fuse as well.

You have a dead short either in your breaker box or the plug in. Chances are it is your receptacle.

    Thank you for trying that. You have eliminated half of the possibilites. What has happened is that there is a wire that has either come loose or has burned in two. The wire is probably touching something else which causes an immediate trip. Now take off the back panel of the washer and begin to look inside. Make sure you have unplugged it first. Trace the wires from the plug that goes into the receptacle. The plug itself may be the problem. Take it apart and see that there are no loose wires touching anything. It should all be snug. Next, follow the wires up to the terminal in back of the washer. More than likely, it is in one of these 2 places. You also can look up inside and see if any wires have come loose as well. Let me know how this does.

Why is my washing machine tripping my main fuse box even when I change the plug socket

by "tripping main fuse" do you mean the high amp (eg 60 amp or 100 amp) fuse that feeds the whole fuse box? if that is the case, there is too much stuff on in your house that's drawing power. The fuse box is too small to power all the stuff you have plugged in and running. Suggest turning off other high draw appliances in the house, like large TVs or microwaves or air conditioners, when running the washing machine.

My washing machine kkeps tripping my fuse box

This is related to a fault in the main control panel, it is possible there is a short if the fuse keeps tripping off. You need to remove plug and pull out the panel to check for short in the power supply to the main control panel usually a SMPS unit. Use a multimeter to check for short, if so this must be replaced.

Washing machine keeps tripping electric switch

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
