Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer
Why dose my aquarius 1200 washer dryer wd62 keep tripping my electric please help as its doing my edd in
Use a stiff new paint brush and give the motor and controller board a good brush
what happens is the carbon drum motor brushes deteriorate
and the left over dust can cause mains tripping as it allows conduction to earth at the motor brushes and plug
you can look for this one for days
its worth noting that there is two types of mains detectors
one is earth leakage ELCD and this usually trips the whole panel
and the other is MCB type just trips one circuit like sockets
so if the MCB trips this is over current and if its just the ELCD this is earth leakage and will be the heating element or dust build up
i agree with the other answer
it would be helpful to know what part of the cycle it fails at
this will tell us more
forinstance if it fills with water then stops and trips
its gona be the heating element
if it trips as it starts to turn its the motor
its something to do with the motor
remember the heating element wont come on till about 1min into the cycle

Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
