Can some one tell me where the earth wires go and the rest of the plugs on a fisher and paykel washing machine mw511

If you are not sure of the wiring contact an electrician!

Connect each wire to the correct terminal. Slacken the screw and push the bare wire into the hole. Re-tighten the screw. Make sure the terminals are tight and that there is no bare wires or loose strands of wire showing. It is often easier to push the pins up slightly when connecting the wires.

  • Blue - Neutral

  • Black - Neutral
  • Green - Earth

Ground leakage detected device cut the power

Take wires out of plug and the wire from the connecter box of machine. With multi tester test earth to live and earth to neutral. If there is a short circuit it will show on which wire it is. Next disconnect live and neutral wires from motor and run test on all wires. If no short the motor is faulty and test the motor connectors. If the short is not found the motor is not the problem but the control system. Disconnect all wires from controls and test everything isolated and individually.

Earth cable had snapped off sort that but found a loose blue wire don't no were it connects to?

There should be a wiring schematic glued to one of the panel on the machine. See if you can find it and trace the wires. Otherwise get me what kind of machine it is, the manufacturer, model and how old it is.

When i switch washing machine on it fuses all electic items in house

What you probably mean is that it kick out the earth leakage in the house. You could either have a neutral wire that has shorted to earth or water has gotten onto your circuitry and is enough to kick out the earth leakage - which it is supposed to do. Try drying out the electrics of the machine with a fan heater or a hair dryer for a while and see if that solves the problem. If not do a check from the neutral wire to earth with an ohm meter and see if you get a reading. If you do, you will have to trace all the wiring looking for the leak. If the drying out solved the problem, you need to look for a water leak.

Green wire on back connects to what

A green wire is usually an earth wire and connects to the frame of the machine. Follow the wire and if it connects to anything else that is part of the frame or casing of any component or the earth wire to the outlet, connect it to a convenient earth screw or stud. If possible, check it for continuity to earth before you reconnect the machine to the mains,
