Hello Russell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide your model number so I have to be general.

There are 2 components that will shut the dishwasher down after start-up.

Door latch contact switch.

Turn the dishwasher power off at your breaker box. Check to make sure the power is off by turning your dishwasher on.
Remove the front of the control panel. Some units have a small front panel and other units you have to remove the whole front of door. Generally the fasteners are torque screws.
Remove the door switch. Using a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohm setting touch both contacts on the switch with the meter leads and depressing the switch in. If the meter reads 'O' the switch is good. Anything else the switch is baMy hotpoint Aquarius washing machine keeps trippin - 25293238-cidyjbddce05r1tawqeodgzr-2-8.jpgt/uploads/images/25293238-cidyjbddce05r1tawqeodgzr-2-8.jpg" alt="25293238-cMy hotpoint Aquarius washing machine keeps trippin - 25293238-cidyjbddce05r1tawqeodgzr-2-15.jpgmi" />

SOURCE: Washing machine trips electric when fills with water

From the symptons described, I would suspect that the heating element is faulty, disconnect the heater, and try it again, if it does not trip, then replace heater.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

it sounds like you have a direct short in the wiring some where on your machine.the only other option is the main control board needs to be replaced

SOURCE: washing machine keeps tripping electric switch

Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Machine keeps tripping the fuse at the fuse box - WD61 Aquarius Hotpoint


I believe the problem is in the fus(breaker). I would say that it is the thermal fuse in the machine but it usually goes out before the breaker does. The breaker has gotten weak over the years. You have a hi limit on the machine as well but I doubt this is it. Let me know how you do.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42. I was using the machine when there was a bang and the electrics tripped. I reset the fuse box, checked the plug fuse and the socket but still nothing. No lights so presumably no...


It more than likely is the motor that has shorted. Remove lower rear panel, remove belt. Undo 2 screws that hold motor in place, remove motor plug, lever motor back to remove same,
Remove carbons and check for wear, also look at armature and see if there is any sign of shorting, clean armature with emery paper, fit new carbons, refit motor and belt, test.

If it still does not work, then in all probability it will have blown the main control board.which would require replacing.

Hotpoint WD64 No power - help please !


hi from n/west uk from the symptoms you describe ? that you have no lights on machine? this is most definately total power loss to machine so if you are certain? the fuse is ok? next is has the wire/lead from plug chaffed or damaged breaking the supply? this next possibility may sound odd but the socket you plug machine into ? may be faulty ie the damp location at rear of machine could have caused deteriation of socket terminals or wires even the wire may have broken/come loose? have had this happen in homes and caused by wires not secured properly and eventually arcing/ resulting in power fail at socket ? may i suggest try another elec appliance ie lamp/hoover/ iron? to check if socket is operating just to eliminate? also if the socket is a fused type? make sure this fuse is ok too? finally have you checked consumer unit for possible seperately fused/trip out for the machine use socket ? hope this helps find fault best wishes
