Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess in particular what is wrong with your washer unless there have been many instances of the same thing- I'm not aware of it, though.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.
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

I have a Bosch kfu5755/21 fridge freezer and it keeps tripping the rcd when I turn it on


Lee,

Most likely to be the defrost element which is located in the freezer.

Disconnect your appliance from the mains power supply

If you empty the bottom of the freezer and remove the drawers and shelves you should be able to locate screws to remove the rear panel. When you get this panel removed you should expose the evaporator.


26262363-xienn535tbiydys4e5iqbku3-5-0.jpg It is similar to the one above.

On your fridge the defrost element clips onto the bottom of the evaporator. If you follow the wires going to this element and disconnect both ends, your fridge will work untill you get a replacement part.

With the element disconnected and your fridge does not trip the rcd order the part from the link below.

Zanussi washing machine trips rcd on spin


Hi Ian.
I am assuming your RCD is fitted in your consumer unit (fuse-box)?
If so, then the chances of this being the cause is minimal. The RCD trips wen electricity is not balanced between live and neutral wires - which means some is leaking out to elsewhere - which it shouldn't because it is dangerous.
It would have helped if you had indicated how old your machine is, and how much use it has had but I am currently leaning towards the motor have several winding options that kick in (or not) depending on the spin speed. It would therefore be a motor fault, or something as simple as the brushes are disintegrating (which is often accompanied by hesitant and intermittent behaviour from the motor). These types of faults mean that some of the electricity may be leaking to the motor casing and then to earth.
I would recommend you call an engineer or if you have decent DIY skills, locate a replacement motor (ebay or the likes) and swap it out.
Good luck
David

Error code 6 quick flashes then 6 longer flashes


I am assuming your rcd is the main one in the house .
If it is tripping there is an earth fault in one of the major components of the machine.
It is unlikely to be a controller or sensor as they are generaly isolated from the the mains.
For the controller to cause an earth fault it would have to be soaked and you would notice water comming out of the machine in that case.

My house fuse box is fitted with a master RCD. A feed off a lounge socket goes threw the wall and feeds an external weather proof RCD box which when switched supplies my garden lights. If a garden light...


Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.

Hi I have a jacuzzi. I would like to connect it DIY


You can get 2 types of Jacuzzi baths, 1 with just a pump which just jets the water via a small pump or 1 with the pump and elements that heats the water aswell as pumps the water through the jets. Because the 1 with the elements has a higher amp rating you need to run a cable from your distribution board to your bath but the 1 without the elements you will be able to tap off the nearest socket to the bath, you will be coming from your socket to a fused spur outlet, it would be better to get a switched fused spur outlet as you will be able to isolate the bath when not in use just by switching off the switch. from the spur outlet you will be wiring it into your motor on the bath, it should say the rating of the pump in amps on the tally plate of the motor or on the manual. For example if it says the motor draws 2 amps you will be putting a 3 amp fuse into your spur outlet so if there is a fault with the motor the fuse will blow instead of tripping the whole socket circuit. All jucuzzi baths has to be connected to the RCD side of your distribution board. If you are tapping off a socket don't worry about the RCD because all sockets should be on the RCD anyway, to check that the socket is connected to the RCD plug something into the socket you are tapping off of and press the test button on the RCD, the RCD should trip and while this is tripped check the lamp or whatever you plugged in shoud be off. The Fused spur should be fitted outside of the bathroom.

The main rcd keeps tripping off round about the same time everyday


do you have a fridge with a defrosting cycle? quite often when a fridge goes into defrosting mode it can dump some voltage to earth which trips the RCD. The other possibility is an electric pump turning on doing the same thing. or it could be a trouble with your power source. if you give me more information i could possibly help you more.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.
