SOURCE: dryer keeps tripping breaker. slight burning

The heating element is shorted. This is an electric dryer, right? replace the heating element. Make damn sure it's un-plugged when you work on it!

This sounds like something has shorted causing the breaker to trip. You definitely need a qualified LG repairman to check it out.

SOURCE: Washer trips circuit breaker

Is washer relatively new? Check circuit breaker for proper size (20 AMPS). Washer must also be on its own circuit. It appears that when the motor starts up it is causing a spike in current (as with any motor), so the breaker is either undersized (Note that if breaker is undersized and you up it to the next size you would also need to replace the wire with the next size up which would be 12/2 with ground), or if you have had your washer a while which I believe is your case the circuit breaker is weakening and is tripping on the current spike. Try swapping out your circuit breaker with a new one and try running the washer again.

Microwave tripping breaker


The microwave may be too big for the circuit it's on. The breaker is tripping to protect the circuit. Try to determine how many appliances/lights/etc are running on this circuit. If there are alot of things, you may try turning some of them off when trying the microwave. If not, then you may have an electrical issue in the wiring or the breaker.
NEVER replace a breaker/fuse with anything larger than what's already in there (recommended by code or a manufacturer).

Why does it keep on throwing the breaker?


Hi, the reason this unit, any unit, is tripping breaker, blowing fuses, is that you have a short circuit, somewhere in the unit, between the Phase Wire and Neutral/Earth.
Usually this is on the main PCB, but in reality, it maybe anywhere within the unit.
With a problem such as this it is nearly impossible to tell exactly where the problem lies, without performing the troubleshooting steps, accordingly i have given you a link below to download your Service and repair manual, also i have included a DIY help site as well.

Older Kenmore model 110.82673110 washing machine keeps tripping the GFI. Replaced GFI but problem persists. How can I fix this?


i would install a regular outlet... and if the circuit breaker blows. then their is a direct short within the washer .i never heard of GFI being used on a washer ..remove it.. their may be other outlets on this circuit also that can adding to it tripping. like frig.. find out what is on that circuit by shutting off the breaker for washer see what else goes off...

I have a Kenmore model 20802990 washer, it will run for a short while and then stop working, it is almost as if the circuit breaker trips because when I turn the circuit breaker of then back on and switch...


well you right in saying "its triping the braker off" thats what it is doing,,
there is a problem with the washer motor,,its pulling far to many amps so its a fulty motor,,,and it will just keep triping the trip out,,,
its a good job you have trips,,the motor could have gone up in smoke

Our kenmore 697267 keeps tripping it's circuit every 5 minutes or so... what's the problem with it? Is it dangerous to just keep resetting it?


definatly a prob if tripping breaker every5 miin, resetting breaker is not good for either the breaker nor hte dryer, that would be hard to determine why without actually looking at though, i would probably calll someone to have a look at that one
