Certainly, in fact it's recommended. of course, the amperage rating is needed from the machine..it's on back of the unit, on the input ratings section..

    a gfi is a ground fault indication plug, used in many applications, where water MAY be present, in proximity to average to high current , like from a washing machine.

Washing machine was operating machine stoped 10 minutes after operating and will not start water is in the machine it did not drain


Hello, first check if the breaker triped in the electrical panel box (fuse box--old name). If it has not triped a breaker. Unplug your washing machine and wait about 10 or 15 second and replug the washing machine into the electrical socket. Don't turn it on. There should be a reset button. Push the button first, then turn on your washing machine. I hope this works for you. GB...stewbison.

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...

LG Washer trips dedicated breaker


That to me seems like an electrical problem. Every now and again you can get a bad GFCI receptacle that will constantly keep tripping. I would also see that the GFCI is properly sized for the circuit. It needs to be a 20 AMP circuit (just dedicated to the washer) and a 20AMP GFCI receptacle. The way to tell is the 1 of the three prongs of the 20AMP GFCI will be in the shape of a "T" while a 15 AMP will have 2 straight prongs and the ground prong. Hope this ws helpful, don't go spilling any money into your washer without getting that fixed first, because it doesn't seem like a washer problem.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.

Amperage pull too high. Increase the rating of the GFCI outlet - or there i an issue with the washer itself.

Ground fault interrupt (GFI)


I have a Whirlpool Model AD$)DSR1 Dehumidifier, with similar issues. When plugged in where it was operating for three years with no problems, it would trip the gfci within 10 minutes. I have it out in the garage right now with all the covers off, and I've had it running on a heavy duty outlet for about a half hour now. The compressor is too hot to touch (ouch!), and the condenser coils are only cool, when they should be quite cold. I am ready to judge that one of two things has happened: Either the compressor is bad, or the refrigerant has leaked out of the system.
