I assume "trips the sockets out" means that the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies the power to the washer opens or moves to the "trip" position. I'll also assume it worked fine while plugged into this outlet before, too.

This indicates a "direct short circuit" or a very low resistance short circuit, and is potentially dangerous to people and property. Do NOT attempt to reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse to try it again. This appliance requires a professional repairman to locate and repair the problem before you should attempt to use it again.

Be safe & good luck!

    An additional thought... in the U.S., washers are supposed to be installed on dedicated, separate 20 amp / 120 volt circuit (that has no other outlets on it). Most washers will use nearly the entire capacity of a 20 amp circuit - so if there is another appliance on the same circuit, the combination of the two appliances will cause the circuit to fail (fuse blows or circuit breaker trips). Make sure that the ampacity of the circuit is matched to the fuse size (not bigger or smaller), and that IF the washer shares its circuit with other devices - those devices are OFF. If thelatter is the case, try to start the washer again after ensuring that everything else on the circuit is off or unplugged. You'll need an electrician to add a new / break up existing circuits so you can operate the washer as desired.

Indesit is70c


its a saftey device, called a "thermodisk". It's purpose is to turn off the heating coil or stop gas flow in the event of over heating. If the thermodisk is bad, trying to over ride it (trying to get it to run) will trip the breaker. Its about 10 bucks and easy to replace.

I started a wash cycle, needed to add more laundry, press the pause/cancel buttom twice, now I can't start it again. When I press the start buttom everything goes blank, all lights go off


Remove the power plug and keep aside. Keep the sart button pressed on to discharge. After 15 minutes switch on the washer while holding the pause/cancel button.
If the set does not come back to life it iis possible that the main board has encountered some errors.
Repeat the procedure after some time.
