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

Have a BEKO TZS490 Freezer. It is tripping my House RCD . is there a fuse in it, (other than the plug)?


no fuses
the tripping of the rcd indicates a dead short or faulty insulation of the unit
check the power lead to the unit for broken wires
other than that it is possible that the compressor motor has burnt out
call a technician for an electrical check

What can be causing trip switch to trip via a Beko DWD 5410W


You mean tripping the circuit breaker?

Can be a sloppy or worn breaker. Does it positively click shut, or does it creep over under load?

Could be water dripping on the motor.

Could be a motor that is seizing and drawing too much power.

The instructions are here, which includes limited troubleshooting a details on servicing.

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!
