A wiring harness may be loose and the vibration has worn through the insulation. Put it on the side and take a look for loose wires and rubbing.

Bosch EXXCEL 7 1200 trips the RCD before even starting

Sounds like you keep the washing machine in an environment which is either damp or not well ventilated.if condensation or moisture finds it's way onto the main control panel of said machine it will cause short circuits which will then trigger the house protection circuits.quick solution is to gain access to the control panel by removing the top after disconnecting power supply.then using a hair dryer over the circuit board panel for about five minutes, reconnect power and keep hands away from any internals and try to repeat the problem.if it still trips it could be a faulty relay or that the main pcb has failed.have you recently experienced local thunderstorms as this is another possible reason for damage to pcbs.

Zanussi washing machine trips rcd on spin

Hi Ian.
I am assuming your RCD is fitted in your consumer unit (fuse-box)?
If so, then the chances of this being the cause is minimal. The RCD trips wen electricity is not balanced between live and neutral wires - which means some is leaking out to elsewhere - which it shouldn't because it is dangerous.
It would have helped if you had indicated how old your machine is, and how much use it has had but I am currently leaning towards the motor have several winding options that kick in (or not) depending on the spin speed. It would therefore be a motor fault, or something as simple as the brushes are disintegrating (which is often accompanied by hesitant and intermittent behaviour from the motor). These types of faults mean that some of the electricity may be leaking to the motor casing and then to earth.
I would recommend you call an engineer or if you have decent DIY skills, locate a replacement motor (ebay or the likes) and swap it out.
Good luck

many servis have an induction motor but later models have a brush motor.
worn brushes will not cause an earth fault. suspect part of the motor windings are down to earth. also possible you have a leak in the tub or door gasket so that on spin, water is thrown onto an electrical item
