SOURCE: Washer/drier tripping rcd!

Hi.
Sounds like you have a short or an earth fault.
if it trips right away, try it with the motor disconnected, if it still trips then you will probably have to call an engineer..

SOURCE: Hotpoint WD860P trips rcd within second of being

the usual problem with tripping is the heater of the dryer box has become loose and touching an earth.
if you take the lid off you will see the box on top of the drum.
with the electric off you can look for loose/disconnected wires and wiggle the 2 metal tabs that are the ends of the heater, should not move.
you may be better with an engineer visit if it's not an obvious fault.

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?


not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

My GS28v00GB001 upright freezer trips my RCD. I've replaced nearly every electrial component (capacitor) Starter device, Sensors and still it does it. Initially it runs for a number of hours till it trips,...


I am not familiar with Bosch but I do know that other brands use the defrost heater as a source for power to the compressor while running. If the heater is partially grounded it could cause this problem. If this is okay have your thought that maybe your RCD is going bad... just a thought

Dryer tripping RCD


Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

My Bosch Classixx 1200 washer causes the household RCD to trip


The first thing I would recommend u do is to remove the motor and check the carbons for wear, Their should be at least 3mm of carbon showing, any less then u shud replace.
The other possibility is a faulty heater element, u cud try it with the element disconnected, if it does not trip then the element is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.
