Re: Aquarius 6kg wma52 blows main power breaker

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

Machine keeps tripping out when starting wash cycle - electrics have been checked by electrician - no problems- have managed to get it to spin but not to wash


The washing machine is obviously drawing too much current for the breaker to handle. This could be due to the washing machine drawing more that it should or because the breaker cannot handle the current the machine needs, coupled with the other machines on the ring main. If the fuse on the plug of the washing machine does not blow, then it could be that there are too many appliances on the ring main. The fuse on the machine may not blow however, if the breaker has a faster blow time than the fuse in the plug. Try plugging the washing machine into another ring main. Or try plugging out all the other appliances on the same ring main and test it out.

If the ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker) is tripping only when the washing machine is running then something in the machine is faulty.

One common problem is the heating element. Over time they tend to crack and when the water gets in, the ELCB will trip out. This can be problematic to diagnose as offten the element will only trip after a period of heating. Bottom line, if it is tripping the ELCB then it is dangerous and should be fixed before any further use.

New whirlpool wtw5100VQ, will not fill hot/warm water,

Remove lid and just check connectors on rear of inlet vaulves are not earthing. Hope this helps. Also to check it is not a faulty solonoid remove wires from 1 terminal and tape them up, then put machine onto hot fill, if this does not blow trip switch then solinoid most likely at fault. Please ensure you disconnect power before touching wires. Good luck hope this helps

Hi could anyone help me please..My Hotpoint WMA52 keeps flooding

It is not draining properly, or overfilling due faulty pressure switch.
Try cleaning the filter first.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Remove large black hose onto bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump.
Hope this helps.

Same problem

Power it off at the mains for 60 mins and then rety. If it still does the same then call in a repair man as it is most likely thatthe main controller board is faulty and needs replacing.

Amana washer won't fill with water

1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.

Door will not lock

Sorry I think it needs a service call as the door control is controlled by the main board if not the part is the door lock.
