My washing machine is tripping the circuit breaker

Hi

My Beko WMA665W washing machine is tripping the electrics in my house. It first happened a couple of days ago, when a wash cycle wash about to finish. It had rinsed the clothes and had 1 minute left on the digital timer, when the whole house's electricity suddenly cut out. I unplugged it and the electricity came back on and stayed on, but every time I plugged the washing machine back in, it stayed on for about 10 seconds, still with 1 minute remaining on the rinse cycle, and then tripped the circuit out again. I cancelled the rinse cycle, and the machine stays on without any problem. I then tried to run a spin cycle, and it ran for around 4 minutes before it tried to kick into a high speed spin, the machine made a short, high-pitched wirring noise, the digital timer began flickering, and then it tripped out the power again.

Any ideas?

    washer has no power unless you unplug from outlet for a couple minutes then plug back in. machine then powers up and runs through complete wash cycle then loses power again.

    washer will only power up unless you unplug for couple minutes and plug back in. after doing this machine will run through complete wash cycle then power back down or lose power again. you have to repeat this to wash another load

When put on to wash, it tripped out the breaker.


Was it working OK before? Tripping breakers is caused by just three things.

A dead short to earth. Water in the motor for example.

The power of the unit exceeds that of the breaker. A 15 amp appliance on a 5 amp breaker.

A worn or sloppy breaker. It should snap shut. When it trips it should snap all the way to off. Feel another breaker to note the difference.

With all things electrical, call a contractor if you are unsure and never bypass breakers. They trip for a reason

At end of washing machine fast spin the machine trips my electricity circuit and TV switches off along with other appliances. Can you tell me what's wrong with machine?


This tells me that you do not have an overload situation. There is a short, and/or one or more faulty breakers possibly including the main breaker.
Even an experienced DIY'er with electrical knowledge would probably contact an electrician at this point. If there is a potential problem with the main breaker then it is best to get professional help.

The electrical consumer unit trips when the dishwasher is on, swicthing all the sockets off in the house. An electrician has told me it could be a number of things, namely a problem with the neutral, some...


You might need to contact a different electrician. Also a different retailer of machines as this one is obviously trying to make a sale. The apparent problem is that the house is wired with all of the outlets in the house on one circuit breaker--a recipe for trouble. Any house with multiple outlets should be divided into zones so that the whole house doesn't shut down if one appliance trips the breaker. A heavy user of power like a dishwasher should have it's own breaker and wiring for that machine alone. The electrician should have load-checked the dishwasher to make sure it is not drawing more than rated power, then suggested that it be wired to it's own breaker and circuit. Any other high power appliances should also have separate circuits (washing machine, microwave, toaster, etc.). Hope this helps!

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker


It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.
