motor brushes are worn and nead to be replaced easy job if you turn washer on to its side remove the 2 screws at the bottom and take off the plastic panel you can see the motor and the brushes are red plastic bits remove them and replace with new ones that should sort out the problem and cost about £25.00 to do .

my w830 is doing exactly the same thing.
I am usually pretty good at fixing these sort of things so if/when I solve it I will post back here.
I think it is a motor fault - most likely the motor brushes are worn out.

SOURCE: Not finishing the wash cycle
I have now solved the problem with our WFxxx washing machine. I was moments away from doing the same (dumping it and buying a new machine), but thought I would take the back off and look to see if I could find anything obvious first.
I am not very technically minded so I was well pleased with myself when I fixed the problem and saved myself a small fortune on a new washer. I was also amazed that it was something really simple that nearly cost me loads of money. The problem cost me nothing to repair but I got a bit wet (a small price to pay).
The problem was caused by a blockage in the sump Assembly.
I removed the small cover plate at the bottom of the back cover (held on by just 2 screws). This gives access to the drain pump and sump assembly. Using a flat bladed screw driver I removed the hose clip securing the sump assembly to the main drum outlet. I also removed the clips securing the sump assembly to the drain pump and the clip securing the pressure sensor sender tube to the sump assembly.
All clips removed I then removed the sump assembly from the main drum. At this point a got a good soaking as trapped water gushed from the main drum outlet!!
Inside the sump I found about £2 in loose change and several paper tissues. (Someone's not emptying their packets before doing the laundry!!!). This blockage was preventing the water from draining away from the drum effectively.
After removing the coins and the rest of the gunge that was causing the blockage (not a very pleasant job and a bit smelly!!), I washed out the sump Assembly in hot soapy water and re-assembled the whole thing. The machine has worked perfectly ever since. The whole repair process took me about 40 minutes and saved me a fortune!

Why did the blocked sump assembly effect the wash cycle?
As I said earlier, I am not technically minded so this is simply my theory of what went wrong.
When the washing machine is draining, water entering the sump is forced up the small bore tube to a Pressure Switch. While there is water pressure pressing against this Pressure Switch, the machine knows that there is still water in the main drum and will not move on to its next part of the wash cycle until the water pressure on this switch is released. Because of the blockage in the sump, the pressure was not released from the pressure switch causing the wash cycle to come to a stand still.
I hope this helps other people experiencing a similar problem with the WFxxx models. A very easy fault to fix (once I discovered what was causing it) and It's certainly cheaper than buying a new machine!

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!
when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.
on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly
Hope this helps
