Are the elecrtic wires all well fastened where the should be fastened?. A loose wire in the plug or in the in the machine itself can blow a fuse, it does that to me. So I am careful to have wires well fastened. There is also the risk of fire starting.

Can the motor control board cause the house circuit breaker to trip?


It's unlikely. An internal fuse would blow first, I'm assuming. If you've diagnosed this far you sound capable of continuing. Electricity is dangerous!!! I would remove all things from the board, 1 by 1 plug each component into board until the breaker trips. That should pinpoint what is tripping breaker. I would assume a motor.

My wight knight wk767 condensing tumble dryer keeps tripping the electrics in my house when i turn it on the reset button at the is ok what is the cause .


Simply there is to much load on the breaker so its tripping to protect your home. I'm not an electrician so I am giving you info based off my experience. Some houses, most I think, have a special plug for the dryer and you can buy a different plug that screws on to the dryer depending on which plug your home has. You may need to upgrade your existing plug in the wall if its an older house. Also, I believe that circuits is on its own breaker separate from the rest so it shouldn't Tripp anything else but the dryer\washer. You can easily fix this yourself if you are confident in dealing with shutting off the electricity and rewiring the outlet or the dryer plus. If not then a electrician can do it easily allbet at a fee. Often times the Home depot or Lowes reps will give you advice but you have to understand its only advice. I would take a picture of the plug and the wall outlet and the breaker. This way you have something to show them at the store when you ask about the plug. One other thing it might be is that the dryer has a bad hearing element or sensor and its drawing to much current causing the trip of the breaker but usually dryers have a $50 fuse on the back that's supposed to blow out first.

Need more info:
What fuse? the one at the end of the cord on the pressure washer? Or the circuit breaker on your house?

If it is the one on the cord it may have gone bad. To test replace it with normal plug (non-GFI) and plug it into an outdoor or bathroom GFCI (GFI) outlet. If it still trips that outlet then there is a ground fault in the device which may be minor or major.

If it is a home circuit breaker remember that electric pressure washers use a lot of power - typically 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged in it can trip the house circuit breaker.

Washer keeps blowing fuses


Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.
