    Same problem - it has happened twice before and it's the eating element. If you live in a hard water area the element builds up limescale and this stuffs up the heating element. You will need to replace it and I suggest you put a water softener on your feed to the washing machne. Also, don't overdo the washing powder - many are now concentrate yet pople still put loads in.

Hotpoint first edition 1000 washer keeps trippin the electrics


Obviously a dead short somewhere. The only way to locate what it is , is with a multimeter. or by trial and error. Disconnecting 1 component at a time until it stops tripping the breaker. Not a very professional way but it works. I would start with the heater element first and then the motor. Make sure any wires that are disconnected are not touching anything and make sure its unplugged when you go taking wires off. Be safe , if you are not sure, get a Tech in.

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current

Dishwasher fills with water but when it should start washing it sounds like the pump trys to start and trips out, this happens over and over while still filling. any ideas?


Hiya,
without the make and model number its hard to tell exactly what the fault is,
Generally this is caused by a siezed motor, could be something got into the impellar or worn out.
When you say trips out, do you mean electrics trip?
If so, you have probably had a leak in the base of the appliance and shorted the motor.

Hope this helps.

Regards
Sussex engineer...

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!

Hotpoint WM51 Washing Machine keeps tripping the electric


Ok that rules out the heating element. There are a number of possible causes so bear with me while i go through them.
Can you open the door? If so leave it open then turn on the machine. Does it trip?

Hotpoint FDW60 Flashing lights 3 and 5


Is it possible that water has gotten inside the controls that could have caused the flashing lights? Kind of like spilling water on a calculator, everything seems to go haywire.

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!
