I would install a regular outlet... and if the circuit breaker blows. then their is a direct short within the washer .i never heard of GFI being used on a washer ..remove it.. their may be other outlets on this circuit also that can adding to it tripping. like frig.. find out what is on that circuit by shutting off the breaker for washer see what else goes off...

My washer keeps tricking my electric wall switches of it is so annoying can anyone suggest why this happens


I guess you are referring to a GFI outlet. They are supposed to trip on leakage of voltage (which happens on all machines with motors). GFI weaken over time so my first and cheapest fix would be to replace the GFI. If the GFI is not the issue, this problem becomes much bigger and compicated.

GFI breaker tripping


It could be a faulty pump,
rusty pump & moisture on copper windings leaks active, neutral back to earth on your pump & trips your breaker.
Solution: Replace pump.

Gfi outlet trips right before the final spin cycle. This is on a top load kenmore 80 series washer. I replaced the timer but the problem still exists. The timer seems to be in a pause mode. In other words,...


Motor driven appliances can trip GFI outlets when there is no problem at all with the appliance. When a large motor first starts, it draws more current for a short time and some GFI outlets will trip (others may not).

Are GFI outlets required by code in your state/county for washing machines? If not, replace the GFI with a standard outlet. If so, replace GFI with a higher quality GFI outlet.

Frig is intermittently tripping GFI outlet.


To be short, the only thing in the machine that really has the capability of causing that is the compressor. Its got a floating short in and when it makes contact it trips the outlet/breaker. Check for any exposed wires just to be sure but I'm pretty certain that the compressor is the culprit and either it or the machine needs to be replaced.

Trips GFCI receptacle for laundry circuit.


I ran into this problem with a washer this summer. the gfi breaker needs to be replaced. it is weak and trips easily. if you can run an extension cord to an outlet without the gfi andrun your washer, you probably will not have any issues. that is what I found with the washer this summer. when it was plugged into the gfi, itwould trip. but when I had it plugged into a regular outlet, it was fine.
