Why is my washing machine tripping my main fuse box even when I change the plug socket


by "tripping main fuse" do you mean the high amp (eg 60 amp or 100 amp) fuse that feeds the whole fuse box? if that is the case, there is too much stuff on in your house that's drawing power. The fuse box is too small to power all the stuff you have plugged in and running. Suggest turning off other high draw appliances in the house, like large TVs or microwaves or air conditioners, when running the washing machine.

You may have either too much also connected to that circuit or the wiring may be involved along with a circuit breaker that needs replacement--you would have to have an electrician look to see if load on it is within limits for what is connected or swap the breaker out with a correct one to see if the issue is the breaker or not.

Hob is tripping fuse box


If the hob is tripping the RCB or MCB on the consumer unit, there is a fault, usually in the elements or halogon heaters, you will need a multimeter to define but please ISOLATE FROM MAINS POWER BEFORE OPENING ANY PANEL
Some electrical knowledge would be helpful, check each element seperatly, you may have to carefuly disconect each heater on the hob, unless you know which blows the mcb, check all connectings to see thay are secure, work round the hab reostates, make sure there is no shorts to ground from elements, with temp control down at zero. Check wiring into mains as a loose connection will cause heat and mcb to trip.
If it is wired into the same outlet as an oven disconnect oven in case the other appliance is causing the problem. it is realy a question of eliminating causes one at a time, working round the affending appliance to define what is the cause.
Hope this is helpful

Hi, my Hotpoint aquarius SDW60 has blown my main fuse, and is overheating giving a burning smell, 2x lights flashing on the front?


There is probably a short circuit on the appliance, or a component such as the motor or timer/control board is defective. Contact an appliance service company.

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.
