Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer
The machine keeps tripping our electric! I have changed the brushes but this has not helped. I can overcome the problem for short periods by rotating the drum manually (by removing the top and using the belt) The machine then carries on with the wash for various periods of time before tripping the electric again. Could you offer any guide as to the possible cause please?
also does this machine have a filter and if so where is it locared? Could that be the problem?
The tripping can either be down to a short circuit drawing too much current and blowing the fuse , or an earth leakage blowing an RCD. You can eliminate the motor when it happen again , by unplugging it and see if the fuse blows (without turning the drum). Most likely is the heater , but i cannot explain why turning the drum allows it to continue. It is possible a wire is rubbing somewhere on the drum pulley , motor or casing. If the machine will immediately trip again if you don't move the drum , try isolating parts by disconnecting and then retrying.
