This sounds very like you've got an insulation breakdown in the heating element, or in the wiring that leads to it. When the water level gets high enough, the machine switches the heater on to start warming things up - at which point the fault gets taken into circuit and blows everything. You already know all the stuff about switching off and unplugging before you start. If you hadn't just been working on the machine, I'd have said just to lash out £23 on spec. and fit a new element. Under the circumstances, it might be worth doing a few checks first: 1. Although you're sure you've replaced all the wires correctly, just triple-check you haven't swapped live and earth at the element. 2. Inspect the wires that run to the element to make sure none of them are chafed or trapped, and that none of the connectors are fouling anything they shouldn't be. 3a. If you can get hold of an insulation tester, use it to check the element earth-live resistance (with all wires disconnected). This should be of the order of a Megohm or more - but will be much less if the element casing has leaked. 3b. On the assumption you haven't got an insulation tester in your back pocket, try this instead: Carefully disconnect the live wire from the element, make it safe with tape if you need to, then try to run the machine. If the machine now fills properly without taking the trip out, then this is a pretty good pointer towards needing a new element. A.

something is going down to earth, start by unplugging the motor and retesting, if it doesn't trip them check the motor carbons etc, if it trips then check the heater element for contact down to earth, replace if needed etc, then check the outlet pump the same way if i have helped rate me please ps when working on machine remove from power supply

we had this, and it turned out to be the plug getting damp at the back of the dryer due to inadequate ventilation at the back of the dryer...we pulled the dryer away from the wall slightly, allowed the plug to dry out for a few days and the problem was solved.

filter is inside the machine. Turn off the power and pull out the machine to
get to the rear. Pull out the hose you
see going into the wall pipe, lay at floor level or plastic bag to drain out
remaining water in machine. Remove the panel at the bottom (2 screws) where the
discharge hose comes out. You should see a black concertina type tube coming
from below the drum attached by a jubilee clip. The filter is inside. Loosen
the clip and pull away the tube, take out the filter and clean it. When you
replace it don't forget to put the ball float back in (exactly as you found it)
and check it’s well fixed by running a spin cycle before sealing up. Caution, the exit drain hose shd be fitted at
the exact location where you found it, abt three feet up from ground level.
Pl rate me nice for the free help, thnks.
