I have a Samsung WF8804RPZ washer. When using it today, my domestic consumer unit MCB tripped. On resetting found washing machine to be dead. No fuses have blown. Any suggestions???

As from above question, would a defective door switch cause this problem???

I use my soup maker at least twice a week today it just kept tripping the electric. My husband. Hanged the fuse but still tripping and won’t work.

If the main RCD tripped the appliance has a fault causing the current to leak to ground. If the MCB tripped the appliance is consuming too much current or has a short circuit.

Only dismantling for inspection and testing will reveal the fault.

Hi, I have a Samsung WDJ1255C Washer Dryer. I recently moved and had the machine unplugged for about a week. I turned it back on today and it's giving me an E13 error message. Can you please help?! Ghana...

unplug for 5 minutes or switch off the breaker switch for five minutes. if the five minute reset doesn't restore the machine your MCB could be stuffed

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

Fuse to high beam keeps blowing. High beam light indication at the dash when this happens. Fuse change good for a day or two then fuse blows. Car was sitting for a week, car battery found dead and fuse...

Only three reasons a fuse blows like that - the circuit consuming almost as much current as the fuse can cope with, dirty or poor connections to the fuse or fuseholder causing it to get very hot or an intermittent short circuit.

It is often useful to temporarily replace the fuse with an mcb (micro circuit breaker). I use one salvaged from a domestic consumer unit.

If after monitoring the circuit current and wiggling wires and connections, opening and closing doors and suchlike there are no obvious faults it will be necessary to persevere with normal use until a pattern emerges - there is almost always a pattern. I suggest you also suspect the headlamp bulb...

Good luck!

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker

It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse

Hello thesquiffys

You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:

Let me know how it goes!

Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You

Hot point washing machine WMA 32

It's unusual for a household RCD to go out on excess current from an appliance - the fuse in the plug top and circuit fuse/MCB in the consumer unit should provide closer protection. This leaves you with an earth fault. Earth faults aren't usually related to motor load. Watch carefully what phase of the cycle the trip happens. Does it correlate with the start of water heating? A very frequent cause of low current earth faults is water ingress into the heating element. If you can trip the RCD reliably on every cycle, running the same cycle with the element disconnected would confirm whether or not this is the cause. A.
