Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be the main motor as primary suspect, internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves.
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

When I put the top down as it clicks in it trips the mains lve tried different plugs in the house with the same result


YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER MAY BE A RCD SET TO TRIP AT
250 M-AMPS VERY SENSITIVE
TO ME IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL COMPONENT OR CABLE SHORTING TO EARTH ,COULD BE SOME DAMP GOT IN SOME WHERE AND IS CAUSING A VERY SMALL ELECTRICAL LEAKAGE, HENCE TRIPPING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER. OR IT COULD BE A COMPONENT FAULT
PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH ,GOT WET OR FAULTY, AND IT COULD BE COMPONENT AS PUMP OR MOTOR , AFTER YOU USUALLY CLOSE THE LID WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, DOES IT START FILLING WITH WATER/ COULD BE WATER SOLENOID VALVE FAULTY , WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IF YOU CAN REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS AS SOON AS THE LID IS SHUT ,THAT'S WHAT MAYBE THE THING THAT IS SHORTING OUT, OR IF NOTHING HAPPENS WHEN YOU CLOSE LID NORMALLY UNTIL YOU SET UP CONTROLS
THEN THE PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR WIRING TO IT FROM PROGRAMMER HOPE THIS IS SOME HELP. PS LEAVE IT OVER NIGHT TO DRY OUT IT MAY CLEAR IT'S SELF. GOOD LUCK

My hoover optima washing machine is tripping my electricity supply. Have tried disconnecting heating element and looking for damaged wires.


Ian if the circuit breaker is a rcd it will trip off the supply if it
normally detects a very small leakage or unbalance of around 35 m /amps this could be a small water leak onto live parts in the machine or a minute short to earth on one component ,make sure all parts are dry / is it tripping when you switch power on to machine or does it trip when machine is in cycle mode.
1. its as first suggestion 2. it's a component like pump or drive motor that;s causing problem. hope this is of some help,g.luck

My defy kitchenaire 621 stove got wet ,nw if I put it on it trips my power supply. What do I do ?


Let it dry out thoroughly and see what happens, If you have a portable heater throw that in there for a few hours to completely dry unit out. Cross your fingers and see what happens.

Pssst - water and electricity do not mix well.

You have a major short to ground which is tripping the breaker. Get an electrician to check the machine, it may be as simple as you have trapped the cable. Don\'t mess with water and electrics. Electricity is the silent killer.

Kettle has just suddenly tripped the electricity. Tried changing fuse and different plug socket but still tripped. O oh!


This is because there is a current leakage between the live and earth terminals of the kettle.
You see, if current leaks from live path to earth, you will get an electric shock when you touch the outer metal surface (because the metal part is earthed). To protect you, the trip switch will cut off the electricity supply.
You can try drying the kettle in hot sun. This is because the current leakage is most probably due to water leaking in to the circuitry.
You can try replacing the heating element, if it is available in the store. Otherwise do not use it. That's better for your safety.

Washing machine trips electric when fills with water


From the symptons described, I would suspect that the heating element is faulty, disconnect the heater, and try it again, if it does not trip, then replace heater.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

There is usually a float switch inside the DW body. Usually a polystyrene lump. This may be stuck in the up position, or a pool of water may still exist within the case.

When you say trips the electric - is this your wall MCB or ELCB ? If it is that then there is a major electrical fault on this machine that needs investigation.

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
