SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing

This is probably a water heater problem  Try operating on the lowest temp  eg.15C If it goes through the cycle then its more than likely your water heater  You will need a refit

SOURCE: Machine keeps tripping the fuse at the fuse box - WD61 Aquarius Hotpoint

I believe the problem is in the fus(breaker). I would say that it is the thermal fuse in the machine but it usually goes out before the breaker does. The breaker has gotten weak over the years. You have a hi limit on the machine as well but I doubt this is it. Let me know how you do.

That means that there is a short or a contact inside the machine.

The short can be on power cable, on control panel, on in the internal wiring harness.

SOURCE: 125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing

if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it

I blew the fus/curcuit trying to change the light bulb in the dryer. Now it wont run .


Check the fuses inside the machine. If it is a European machine, there is usually a 13 amp fuse in the plug.

Washer does not start, replaced lid switch, and timer still doesn't work. when parts mentioned were replace. washer did start and fill but then stopped.


Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems i will post some information on some more parts that need to be tested ok?
Washing machine is dead, wont start Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

I have bosch classic, the fuse goes off after 5


Make sure you hace a 13 amp fuse fitted in plug.
Could be a faulty heater element.
Locate heater,remove connections to heater and try without the
heater.
If it still blows, then could be a faulty motor, unplug motro, and try again.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine fuse blows every couple of washes


the machine is pulling to much power.check to see if it is on a 15 or 20 amp outlet. you said you replaced the fuse. the amp size should be on it. if it is a 15 amp fuse,plug the machine into a 20 amp circuit and see if the fuse blows then. it shouldn't since it wasn't blowing everytime on the 15 amp circuit, but never put a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp socket! the fuse can handle the load[ no pun intended], but the electrical wire would burn not blowing the fuse, thus causing a fire.
hope this helps.

Washing machine keeps tripping electric switch


Hiya,
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
