Question about Washing Machines
I checked the socket/power source, it works with other appliances. I changed the fuse for one that works. Still nothing, no lights, no response. What can I do? This comes just a few days after our TV died in a similar way. One minute we were watching it, then it just switched off. No lights, no power. Also checked the power source and the fuses. So I have 2 questions: 1) what can I do with the washing machine? 2) does this sound like a problem with the wiring of the house, causing appliances to blow?

probably short to earth on the dryer elements. to check. take top off, disconnect dryer elements then run on dry program. if the trip stays in, then you have identified the fault

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

My machine would not switch on this morning, no beeps or lights, I traced it to a small fuse on the main circuit board. you get to the board by disconecting from the mains, removing 2 crosshead screws at the back of the machine and lifting the top of the machine off ( once screws out, slide top of machine back about 1cm and then it just lifts off. You can now see the main circuit board, behind the control panel on front of machine. the fuse is hard to see and is solderd to the board on the lower left side, I solderd onto both ends of the fuseand replaced with a 10 amp HRC fuse, I still need to find the correct fuse rating, this worked for my machine.
However, and its a big however, If the 13amp fuse in youre plug blew and the trip on youre consumer unit, then I would imagine something big (pulling a large current) has gone down in youre machine to cause all these to blow, anyway hope this helps, Robin.

This sounds like an electrical fault within your Candy washing machine.
Have you tried plugging your coffee machine, dishwasher or toaster into the SAME POWER SOCKET?
If so, does this still trip out the mains/house fuse?
If it does, it sounds like there is a fault in your house wiring.
If these "high power" devices/appliances do not cause the same problem, then you may have an Earth Leakage fault on your washing machine or something else inside it has short-circuited and will need servicing right away!

The warning light comes on because the machine "thinks" that something is wrong. Since it stops on and off something is wrong.
Why not phone the Whirlpool service in your area and tell him aboout this and ask what you can do??
give it a try
