    Thanks for the reply. The machine has been working fine in the exact same configuration for many years so I don't believe it is an under rated fuse or circuit breaker. More likely it is a faulty earth as you say. How do I isolate the earths to find the faulty one?
    thanks Paul

    Also, if the machine works through it's cycle and only trips the circuit breaker when it gets to position 4, surely the earthing problem would have arisen before this point in the cycle.
    thanks Paul.

    Thanks, there is no disposal, just a single outlet for the dishwasher. Paul.

Hi

Please check the fuse/circuit breaker for your washer and also the main circuuit breaker. If the circuit breaker and fuse seems to be fine then you'll need to check the washer wire if it is cut or burnt. If these things seems to be fine then you'll need to disassemble the washer to check the power board of the washer for any burnt components, Also, inspect the wiring on the board. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

Hi,

Dishwashers by code must be connected to a GFCI circuit since they handle water. If there is a faulty ground anywhere on the device the GFCI will trip, hence saving you from being electrocuted. If the circuit breaker is under rated and the 4-cycle is drawing more current than the rating, it will blow. The dishwasher should be on its own circuit also. If more than one appliance is on the same circuit, it may be too much for that circuit. Make sure the rating of the circuit breaker matches the manufacturers recommendation.

Check and let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    You need to check all the connections to make sure there is no faulty ground connections. Unfortunately, i do not have the service manual to exactly tell you which wires or connections you need to take a look at. I tried to find the service manual, however it is not available online or in my database.

    I sent the same question to one of the other experts who sent me the below solution :-

    The problem probably lies in the dishwasher, but I don't think you need to replace it, just yet.



    GFI's aren't very stable when it comes to powering anything with a
    motor, like the dishwasher and the disposal. I'm surprised this didn't
    happen sooner.

    The GFI outlets and it's downstream partners are designed for the
    outlets above the counter and not for the dishwasher or the disposal.

    GFI outlets do get weak, over time, and installing a new one may be the easiest option.

    The other option is to switch the connections around in the outlet box
    so the dishwasher and the disposal are not being supplied from the GFI,
    but from the line feeding the GFI.

    The dishwasher and disposal should not be on the same breaker is the
    countertop outlets, but this could be difficult to correct.

    Check and let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine WMA58P will not empty.


Recheck your electrical connections. Check for power reaching the pump with a suitable tester. If there is no power then it might be the controller or that it might not be requesting the pump to operate.

Keeps tripping power at 13minutes remaining, just before the spin cycle


Hello. It sounds like the motor has gone bad--possibly a shorted part of the motor, or a jammed drain pump. It also could be the transmission binding at the point of going into spin mode. You didn't provide a brand/model number so my help is limited. The clue here is the clicking before the power trip.

Oven overheating


Your thermostat is STUCK. Replace. Your 'tripping mains' is your clue that your power is over loaded. Have an electrician check your boxes to make sure all is ok AFTER fixing stove.

Circuit trips on the beginning og the was cycle.


If you experience the power circuit to trip every time the machine is put to start and when the water flows to load, it is possible that there is a higher current drain on the INLET Valve. You can disconnect and touch the valve to confirm if this is warm. If so there is a short within., Also it can be related to fault within the main board, the motor drive, motor and capacitor.

Without doing the minimal setting test to see if a time clock works how do you test a time clock with defrost termination the x terminal


8145-20 is 240Volt defrost timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#8045

You are testing the 8145-20 timer.
The timer dial should rotate continuously. Trippers on dial rotate around. When they reach the trip switch, the timer starts the defrost cycle.
Terminal 3 has power during defrost cycle.
Terminal 4 has no power during defrost cycle.
With 240Volt timer, terminals 1 and 2 and N and X test for live power to ground at all times.

The limit switch is connected to terminal X and to terminal N.
During the defrost cycle, the limit switch measures the pressure or temperature.
When pressure or temperature reaches the set point, the limit switch closes the circuit and this trips the solenoid inside timer. The solenoid turns off the timer relay, and the defrost cycle ends.
At this point the timer turns off the defrost, and sends power to the refrigeration.
Terminal 3 has no power during refrigeration cycle. (The opposite of defrost cycle).
Terminal 4 has power during refrigeration cycle.
Test these terminals for power to ground. One or the other should have power at all times, but not both.

If timer will not enter defrost cycle, make sure the X-3596 trippers are not worn down.
Disconnect the wire to terminal X and see if defrost cycle will start.
Test terminals 3 and 4 again and see if removing wire from X caused a change.

Heater element


Hello Paul, I am not sure what a circuit tester is showing you. I use a volt meter to check the incoming voltage to the element. If the voltage is within factory specs, then I use my Amp meter to check if the element is pulling any amperage. The fact that you fill the washer with hot water then it works tells me that the unit isn't heating. If you don't have a volt meter to measure the voltage, then see if you have a friend to borrow one from. Hope this helps.

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.
