Beko WMA1715S Tripping the fuses for house

My washer had just done one load, and I put in another and it threw the trip switch for the house electrics. Now, every time I switch it on, it throws the trip again. You can vaguely smell electrics when it was running, but now doesn't stay on long enough (without throwing the fuses again) to try and determine where or even if that's what's happening. Nothing looks burnt around the electrics. No water is leaking anywhere.

Any idea what I should be looking for, or why it would do this? The machine is almost three years old. It gets used regularly, but I wouldn't say heavily. Maybe one to two loads a week. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there......possibly couple reasons for this....(1) faulty heater.......(2) where the mains lead enters the machine it connects to a mains filter unit..this unit may have broken down and leaking to earth....try this area first

regards Sir Galahad

Bosch classic xx 5 mintues into the wash, stops and tripps elec.


Hello Sir,
I think that this is due to a faulty Main box Fuse. This usually happens when the heating elements of the washer go on. Try to inspect for faults, cracks or breakages in fuse box or in switches.

Thank you Sir,
Have a nice day.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

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!

Machine fuses house RCD if a drying cycle is selected


Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.
