Tripping the breaker

During the cycle, it keeps tripping the electric breaker

Posted by on

  • sims4939 Mar 20, 2009

    Actually I thought it might be the heating element in the bottom and it seems like the steam inside when I open it is very hot. It does not get all the way through the washing and sensing cycle. After it tripped the breaker, I fixed the breaker and then put the washer on cancel/drain. After it did that, it still kept tripping the breaker, even when it was not doing anything and I had the door open. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

How far into the cycle does it trip the breaker?Does the motor run then trip it?Is it at the end of the cycle when it goes to a dry cycle?Does it trip in the beginning when it fill's up with water?

Why would my malber WD 1000 keep tripping the breaker during drying cycle


breaker tripping is caused by an overload ( amps x voltage = watts). If the breaker is- for example -10 amperes and the voltage is 120 volts it equals 1,200 watts of power consumption and if the device is pulling more than the 10 amps setting of the breaker then, it will tripp. Just check how many amps is used by the device and if it is hooked to an electrical outlet that has a lower amps rating than the device then, it will tripp. Look for another electrical outlet that will support the device amps usage and give it a try to find if it does not tripp. If it still does then you may need to take it to a rapair facility to verify if there is any short within the device

At end of washing machine fast spin the machine trips my electricity circuit and TV switches off along with other appliances. Can you tell me what's wrong with machine?


This tells me that you do not have an overload situation. There is a short, and/or one or more faulty breakers possibly including the main breaker.
Even an experienced DIY'er with electrical knowledge would probably contact an electrician at this point. If there is a potential problem with the main breaker then it is best to get professional help.

Dishwasher trips out after running for a while


When you say "trips out" do you mean the circuit breaker trips? If so the breaker in the electrical box may be bad. Also do you have anything on that circuit pulling high amps when the dishwasher is running? Also when does it "trip out" during a pump cycle or when the heating element cycle starts?
If the pump does not work at all then the pump may have went out. If it happens when the heating element cycle starts then it may be the circuit is overloading or the breaker is bad.

Washer keeps blowing fuses


Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.

When #9 program for Bagels is running , the temp drops 130 degrees before cycle is complete. also having to reset breaker several times


It's normal for the oven to drop temperature during the first 4 minutes of a bagel cycle, although the temperature should recover to 525 before the end of the bake. If your breaker keeps tripping you could have a blown heating element and should call your local authorized service provider, I wouldn't recommend attempting to repair this one on your own.

Hello there, If this unit is tripping the breaker lets say on the pump out drain cycle, then you for sure have a problem in the motor and pump assembly.Anytime a breaker trips, if the breaker isn't worn out, it indicates that it is drawing more amps than it is rated for due to an overload problem and so on.You're motor and pump needs to be checked out on site with the proper electrical tools and so on. Wish I were there to help.
Good Luck, Shastalaker7

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
