Candy GO1482 washing machine blows house fuse

Every time we turn our Candy GO1482 washing machine on at the plug socket it blows the house fuse circuit. We have changed the fuse in the plug with no joy. What else can it be?

This sounds like an electrical fault within your Candy washing machine.

Have you tried plugging your coffee machine, dishwasher or toaster into the SAME POWER SOCKET?
If so, does this still trip out the mains/house fuse?
If it does, it sounds like there is a fault in your house wiring.

If these "high power" devices/appliances do not cause the same problem, then you may have an Earth Leakage fault on your washing machine or something else inside it has short-circuited and will need servicing right away!

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.

I have 2 cotton candy machines. One says 25 amps and the other says 30 amps on it. I would like to take either one of them to parties at people's houses, but am afraid of blowing fuses. Is there...


Hi marieu2005..
The only way to avoid blowing breaker or fuses is to ask the person do they have an available 25/30 amp socket, and you need it to fit the plug you have on your machine.
Please take time to rate me

No power on washing machine (candy go1482) it blew the house trip then since then wont turn on ive tried an extension lead and still does not work


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

How do the drum caseing come apart to change bearing on my candy go1482 washing machine


Candy GO1482 model is made by Hoover and the drum is welded shut. You can't replace the bearings (cost usually 10 GBP) and a replacement is 220 GBP plus vat. I've just been bitten and hurt badly over it. Next time buy Indesit, Hotpoint or Bosch.

Our whirlpool awm5145/5 washing machine is blowing fuses where it's plugged in usually and it won't work in the plugs on the same wall but when we plug it in a different wall it will work fine?


This sounds like an overload from the Ring circuit house wiring...Most rings here in u.k. are 32 amp.this should be okay for small oven /Micowave/ kettle / if the washing machine is running at 3000watts or 12 amps and a kettle is also the same total load is 24 amps.....If the machine blows the breaker/or fuse on its own I suggest looking at the wiring on the supply socket or better still contact an Electrician......

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker


It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.

Washing machine fuse blows every couple of washes


the machine is pulling to much power.check to see if it is on a 15 or 20 amp outlet. you said you replaced the fuse. the amp size should be on it. if it is a 15 amp fuse,plug the machine into a 20 amp circuit and see if the fuse blows then. it shouldn't since it wasn't blowing everytime on the 15 amp circuit, but never put a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp socket! the fuse can handle the load[ no pun intended], but the electrical wire would burn not blowing the fuse, thus causing a fire.
hope this helps.
