    We could do with a little more information, please ;-0)
    You do not say what the make and model is. Is it the main breaker which is tripping? Also at what point of the dial does it happen?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(I've used the same solution for both of your postings)
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.

It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that you only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

Sorry again and good luck,
John C

Intermatic WH40 will not "turn on" trip switch but will do the turn off trip switch. Why?

Make sure there one silver and one black adjustable trip pins on the dial. One is for on abd one is for off.

My tork 1101 timer will not trip on. It trips off ok. Manual override works fine, trip pins fine. When I manually rotate the dial it trips off fine, i hear and feel it click when the on pin pass, but the...

as per geno, Tork T1101 has 120 Volt clock motor and is generally used for 120Volt loads but can be wired other ways to handle 240Volt circuits.

Here are basic wiring instructions for 120Volt.
1) Black Hot wire from breaker connects to both terminal 1 and terminal L.
There is usually a brass connector plate between these two terminals. If that plate is present, then connect Hot wire to one terminal or the other.
2) White Neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal X.
3) Black wire going to Load (light, fan, motor) connects to terminal 2
4) White neutral wire going to Load connects to terminal X along with other neutral wire.

That's the wiring.
To operate timer:
1) Set current time: rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with the word TIME that is located to lower right of dial at about 5 o'clock position.
2) Put on-off trippers on outer edge of dial at times you want timer to turn on and off.
The trippers are marked ON and OFF.

3) The ON tripper rotates around on the dial until it encounters a lever, and then it pushes the lever.
The lever clicks one direction for ON tripper, and then OFF tripper pushes lever other direction.
The lever opens and closes electrical contacts which turns the Load on-and-off.

When you turn on the drier it trips the electricty. there is power in to the power switch but when you turn the dial it trips the fuse box. the model is TC7103W

an electrical earth leakage will cause the trip. possibly the the heating element. but the motor or wiring fault can do it. you could try disconnecting the heater if the electric stays on. then change the element.

Washer will not start - no power - no noise when turning dial.

Is there power at the wall plug? A breaker might be tripped.
(Just a thought)
Hope this helps... Good luck.

Worked fine until I tried to change the on/off time of the lights. Now the timer does not move around. I have unplugged it and plugged it back in but still does not work. How do I fix it? ML300RTW

Check to see if you are getting power at the outlet. Sometimes GFCI receptacles will trip with very little provocation. Also, remove the trips and re-install them, as you may have inadvertently jammed one between the dial and the case, causing the dial not to turn Needle nose pliers make it an easy job to remove and replace the pins. You should be able to turn the dial easily.
Also, if you tried to install a trip in a slot close to the current time, it's possible it may have jammed the mechanism.

Frigidaire compact 30 elec. stove. I need a wiring diagram for the front connections for oven, burners, oven lights. My oven isnt working and when I removed the front cover, noticed a wire not connected. ...

Does yours have the timer/clock thing that stands at the rear left of the stove? If so, make sure the far right dial is set at Manual. I had a repair person come out once (luckily it was someone I knew who didn't charge me) because my oven quit working. He turned the dial to manual and presto! :)
