Possibly a wiring problem in house. If Thats not the case you will need to have amp draw from motor checked.

At end of washing machine fast spin the machine trips my electricity circuit and TV switches off along with other appliances. Can you tell me what's wrong with machine?

This tells me that you do not have an overload situation. There is a short, and/or one or more faulty breakers possibly including the main breaker.
Even an experienced DIY'er with electrical knowledge would probably contact an electrician at this point. If there is a potential problem with the main breaker then it is best to get professional help.

My machine will not finish a cycle and just stays filled with water.

It sounds as though you either have a clog in the drainage system of the machine, or a bad drain pump.

Put washing machine on and it automatically trips

If it is tripping the breaker, the first question that has to be asked is how many other appliances do you have on the same circuit. When the washer goes to spin it will start to draw slightly more electricity than once its at a full spin(much like the energy needed to get a car moving is greater than once it is up to speed), but it is not enough to trip the circuit unless there the circuit is already near capacity.

Before attempting to check electric of the washer, check and remove items from the circuit. To know what circuit runs your washer you will need to take a pigtail or a radio and plug it into the outlet Go to circuit breaker box and turn on and off circuits until the radio goes out.. Once you acertain what circuit your washer is own, go throughout the house and see what circuts are shared with the washer. Unplug any that are shared with washer. Your Hotpoint needs no more than 15 amps to run but if your overloaded on the circuit, the spin is enough for it to trip the circuit. Try washer and see if you go through the full cycle.

Flashing lights and trips the electric

Are you around when the breaker trips? It almost seems as though an electrical connection is getting wet. Especially if it won't let you reset the breaker. Another reason for not letting you reset the breaker could be an overload that tripped but that to me would be within the machine, it shouldn't trip at the panel. You get pull the machine apart and check for these things. Look for and wetness or wire connections being crossed, anything like that. Something at the spin cycle is shorting out and tripping out your breaker. Also is your dryer circuit properly sized (30AMP Breaker with 10/3 wire)?

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse

Hello thesquiffys

You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:

Let me know how it goes!

Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You
