Most likey a short in the motor or the start capactor is bad, however if you turn it off and then turn it on with the motor off and are just filling the tub and it kicks the breaker you may have a bd switxh or a wire has come off. to look at this machine go to www.appliaancepartspros.com amd look up the parts and wiring diagram to see if yo can figure out what your problem is. Many times a wire comes off (Spade Termnial) be sure to unplug the machine before working on it.

Keeps tripping the electric mains replaced element but still does it HOTPOINT


Try increasing the ampere rating of your breaker or remove other load(i.e. aircon unit, water heater, washing machine etc.) when dryer is connected so as not to overload your breaker that is causing mains to trip. If previously you are using the dryer with the same setup and loads maybe the breaker is the problem.

Hotpoint washing machine keeps tripping electric


First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!

My hotpoint ultima keeps triping the trip switch. it had f08 on the screen but now that has gone, but still trips electrics every time i press start.


Hi

f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.

Washing machine tripping everything in the house


Washing machines take out ring main fuses if there are faults in the machine:

washers heater unit
motor
or suppressor.

Also water may have breached a seal somewhere and cause a short inside the electrical compartments.

To fix a fusing washing machine you have to use a diagnostic electrical meter that puts high voltage across the appliance - Not something I can offer more info on. So whatever has happened (and in the interest of safety) you would probably want a qualified proffessional to take a look or as a last resort a hotpoint engineer!
