    There are no fuses in electrical appliances in Australia. Re-setting the main house trip switch restored power to everything else, but the washer remains dead.Other appliances on the circuit are working fine. Is it likely that the bearings on the drum have gone, resulting in excessive power use and now break down? Is replacing bearings a cheap and easy solution? Or on a 15 year old machine that probably now needs a new power board as well is replacement the only sensible answer?

Well, seems to me that you are using too much juice for the circuit, which implies a SERIOUS issue with the machine. perhaps the motor is locked, or something in control panel is shorted out. You will need a technician to fix this!

Hello Gillian,

There are many cases like yours. You see, the washing machine is obviously eating too much current for the breaker to handle.

The washing machine draws more than it should and because the breaker cannot handle the current that your washing machine needs, and same with the other machines on the ring main, then the circuit breaker tripped!

If the fuse on the plug of the washing machine does not blow, then its could be that there are too many appliances on the ring main. The fuse on the machine may not blow however, if the breaker has a faster blow time than the fuse in the plug.

Try pluging the washine machine into another ring main. or try plugging out all the other appliances on the same ring main and test it out.

Good luck! :)

Bosch front loader wfl2400 is making loud banging noise when in spin cycle. Sounds like drum has coming of its mounts.


your main bearing is failing. this is a mayor repair issue. you need to call a repair expert. the bearing are molded at factory and require special tools to install. if you try driving them in by hammering you will damage them or wont last 3 to 6 month. depending on how old and how much you paid for the washer you may consider replacing it.

A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub. The banging noise is due to being unbalanced. You may need to replace the balance ring on the top of the drum inside the washer. Watch this Video to see if this is how your machine is acting.

It doesn't work at all If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power Lid switch No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

I have a Bosch Exxcel 1400 S Express which blew


There is no internal fuse in the washer to replace.
If you have replaced the fuse, make sure that is is a good one.
If you are satisfied that you have power to the washer, then I'm afraid it sounds quite serious.
Trust this helps.

Front load washing machine would not spin now won't wash either.


Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such a s a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the macine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys. Good Luck!
