yes check for a heater element down to earth or at least a wire on the element off and touching the case, but i am confident its a heater element, rate me when you fix it, work with safety unplug when working on machines

WASHING MACHINES ARE NOT TO BE CONNECTED TO GFI OUTLETS AND TRY TO CONNECT IT TO A CERCIUT THAT IS NOT WITH YOUR DRYER. (REG) OUTLET.

It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.
