Question about Washing Machines
I have disconnected the heater element, and the water pump. Boteh work without tripping. What is the most probable fault area?
Most of the time its the element but check to see if theres any water leaks onto the motor element or pump.it could also be a worn wire touching the frame.hope this helps.

The washing machine is obviously
drawing too much current for the breaker to handle. This could be due to the
washing machine drawing more that it should or because the breaker cannot
handle the current the machine needs, coupled with the other machines on the
ring main. If the fuse on the plug of the washing machine does not blow, then it
could be that there are too many appliances on the ring main. The fuse on the
machine may not blow however, if the breaker has a faster blow time than the
fuse in the plug. Try plugging the washing machine into another ring main. Or
try plugging out all the other appliances on the same ring main and test it
If the ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit
Breaker) is tripping only when the washing machine is running then something in
the machine is faulty.
One common problem is the heating element. Over time they tend to crack and when the water gets in, the ELCB will trip out. This can be problematic to diagnose as offten the element will only trip after a period of heating. Bottom line, if it is tripping the ELCB then it is dangerous and should be fixed before any further use.
