Question about AEG Washing Machines
Our 10 yr old AEG washing machine needed to have the motor replaced. Since the new motor was installed I have tried to use the washer, it's fuse in the splitter box blows (not sure of it's correct name). Both the washer and drier are plugged into this box, each unit having it's own 15amp fuse in the box, before being connected to our 220V connection. The drier has not been affected. This happens about 10 minutes approx into the cycle. When the fuse was replaced the first time, the machine succesfully span, drained etc, but something is happening at the front end of the cycle to cause this fuse to blow. It's now happened twice. The repair man just wants to put a bigger fuse in the "splitter box", but I'm concerned that there is more to be addressed in the actual machine. Can anyone help.

Unfortunately the motor data does not give the current rating, only the voltage.
The circuit breaker would trip if the current is too high or overloaded. The voltage is not the issue.
I have checked the AEG and Electrolux sites who made this motor but to no avail.
Can I ask, whether your washing machine has a water pre-heat function, and are you using that function? I am thinking that maybe the new motor consumes higher current than the old motor, so it may be tripping the circuit breaker on its own. But the water pre-heat only operates in the first cycle.
I hope I haven't confused you.
One resort would be to ring the repairer and ask them the current ratings of both motors, explaining the problem you have.
Let me know your thoughts.
