Question about Hotpoint WD52 Front Load Washer / Dryer
While running, my Hotpoint WD51 washing machine tripped the main household fuse. I put it back on and realized that the fuse in the appliance plug had blown. replaced that and also opened the cover to open the door from inside(had posted this problem earlier). The machine ran fine for another wash and the fuse blew again (but the door was fine)..replaced the second time and again the machine ran fine for 1 more wash. Now,the fuse in the appliance plug has blown for the third time and now if i replace it, it blows the instant i seitch on the power supply. Also, this time, the machine body was quite hot when the fuse blew. Please advice what could be the problem and how can I fix it.
Is it the motor that got hot?, if so then check the motor carbons for wear, as these heat up when worn, also if the carbons are fine check the pump and filters for blockages, this makes the motor spin while water is still in the machine causing the motor to overheat, and subsequently tripping and blowing the fuses etc hope i have helped a little
