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.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius condenser dryer model no. TCL770

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.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius not completing finally spin and pumping out

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The 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.

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 WD420 TRIPS ALL THE SOCKETS IN MY HOUSE


You have a fault on the machine which is a dead short or an earth leakage.

Neither can be sorted out without a set of testers and some knowledge

Unless you can get hold of a resistance checker and know how to use it call a in a repair person

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen
