Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Have the motor cleaned - or clean it with some aerosol cleaner.
The added load of the dirt/dust/corrosion on the brushes is making the current draw high.
Eventually - repeated GFI trips can cause the GFI to wear out as well.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Number one you DON'T want a G.F.C.I. ON a washing machine to start with, because of the water around the machine will induce a capacitive effect on the HOT lead of the 120 volt circuit and dump the G.F.C.I., another thing you only want ONE G.F.C.I.on any circuit so put one in the house panel to protect the people/property if you want, the N.E.C. does not require a G.F.C.I. on a washer anyway.
