Tripped my circuit and wont reset or start HELP!!!

The very first time I used this new eurotech washer dryer combo it tripped my circuit breaker at the end of the drying cycle and when I reset the breaker and went to restart the machine it only flashes spin and will not do anything. I tried holding the on/off button for 10secs to reset it, but when I push the start button I get nothing except the flashing spin light . I also tryed holding the start button in for 10 seconds hoping that would reset it. WRONG I AM.... I also unplugged it and plugged it back in... I am getting no where. I Hope someone can help me out here.. Thanks soooo much..

Re: tripped my circuit and wont reset or start HELP!!!

Your circuit braker tripped because of a current problem that in your case caused a defective part. Since your machine is still under warranty, best way will be to contact to the appropriate factory service center for repair the problem. Good luck!

My washer/dryer combo has 1 cord 220 yes it did work I washed serveral loads then I went to wash another and it want run fill up or anything

Check the fuse in the plug first.

If it is a good fuse, then you need to call an engineer as the problem is likely on the circuit boards inside.

There may also be a reset switch somewhere on the casing that trips if the dryer has got too hot. You just need to press it until it clicks to reset it.

Our old Hoover washer dryer had been working perfectly and then started tripping out - it would seemingly lose power mid cycle. We tried it in different plug sockets and using an extension lead with a...

ok I assume from what you are say that the circuit breaker in the consumer unit (fuse box) trips it could be that the circuit breaker is beginning to fail (they can go weak after prolonged use) and will tend to be a problem on high load appliances the water heater will take around 12.4 amps as will the dryer heater get the circuit breaker changed

Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Whenever this fuse goes bad it'll either trip the circuit breaker or the dryer wont heat. You can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions

Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

Frigidaire Laundry center blows circuit when w/d run at same time

Okay, here's the best I can do from this distance.

The combo unit is on a 30-amp, 220-volt circuit. One cord supplies both washer and dryer.

The breaker does not trip until the washer motor starts running simultaneous with the dryer drying.

My guess is that (if the combo unit is connected correclty to the one supply cord) the dryer motor runs off the 110 volt supplied by the red/white wires & the washer motor runs off the other 110 volt leg, black/white (could be vice-versa, but that's irrelevant).

The dryer heating element runs off the 220 volt supplied by the red/black wires.

There are two most likely causes (but not the only possibilities):

- The breaker is bad -- could just be oxidation on the breaker contacts in the bteaker box -- I havae seen this conditon -- small amounts of oxidation can cause the breaker to overheat and trip -- of course, the more current the load draws the hotter the breaker gets.

- One of the motors (washer or dryer) is beginnig to fail (windings beginning to short) and drawing more than rated current which is overloading the breaker.

Checking thes two theories requires some not-so-standard equipment, and some more-than-handyman expertise. And if neither of these theories pans out, the troubleshooting gets more complicated.

So, to address your original question, "Can I fix it myself, or should I hire someone?, I would say you should hire someone. This wirite-up may give them a head start.

Let me know if you have any questions.


A third possibility (only possible if this tripping condition ahs existed from the beginnig of the w/d installation) is that the power cord is connected to the unit such that both motors are powered by the same 110 volt leg. Not being there to assess this, I can't say how likely this is, but it's a long shot for sure.

EuroTech EWC177 washer/dryer combo reset

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, ..well this is a solution.....
my roommate unplugged the machine while it was drying. the start and spin lights were both flashing. I called the company and they told me to reset it, but the weren't sure how, lol.
I unplugged it and waiting, nothing. I flipped the breaker, nothing. I finally turned it to a setting, and turned on nob on the dry, and it started clicking.
I turned off the dry, and hit the start button, and it started right up...

If the next time you use it and it's fine then you did succeed in resetting the system and will be alright!
Let me know that we were successful!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Circuit breaker on laundry circuit has started to trip

if the machines are both on the same outlet i would attempt to run them on seperate outlets first to see if it improves. as time lapses breakers or gfi's can weaken and a continous amp draw esp. in the spin and the ignition stage at the same time which are the largest amp draw from either machine at any give time could be causing the issue. if this does not work you need a tech to look at it

Both broken?

sounds like an electrical issue for sure, too coincidental that both would stop functioning at asime time, they are independent units and should work separately . i would check your breakers, perhaps it has partially tripped
