Tripped my circuit and wont reset or start HELP!!!
The very first time I used this new eurotech washer dryer combo it tripped my circuit breaker at the end of the drying cycle and when I reset the breaker and went to restart the machine it only flashes spin and will not do anything. I tried holding the on/off button for 10secs to reset it, but when I push the start button I get nothing except the flashing spin light . I also tryed holding the start button in for 10 seconds hoping that would reset it. WRONG I AM....
I also unplugged it and plugged it back in... I am getting no where. I Hope someone can help me out here.. Thanks soooo much..

Re: tripped my circuit and wont reset or start HELP!!!
Your circuit braker tripped because of a current problem that in your case caused a defective part.
Since your machine is still under warranty, best way will be to contact to the appropriate factory service center for repair the problem.

ok I assume from what you are say that the circuit breaker in the consumer unit (fuse box) trips it could be that the circuit breaker is beginning to fail (they can go weak after prolonged use) and will tend to be a problem on high load appliances the water heater will take around 12.4 amps as will the dryer heater get the circuit breaker changed
leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).
You need to check the following things to sort out the issue you are facing with--
Improper sorting •Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally, to dry a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics •Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take (like beach towels) longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set •Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full •Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed ducting •Check installation instructions for proper ducting/venting.
•Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and unobstructed.
•Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
•Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the dryer venting is correct.
Blown fuses or tripped •Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers circuit breaker use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads •Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at a time.
Underloading •If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items to ensure proper tumbling.

AnswerDid you select an Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature option?
The Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature does not add heat to the dryer. Expect loads dried with the Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature to take longer to dry. Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections. Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuses or reset the circuit breakers. If the problem continues, call an electrician. Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer?
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. Review the Installation Instructions to make sure that the power supply cord is properly installed.
tinaheinleHello Welcome to fixya. I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, ..well this is a solution..... my roommate unplugged the machine while
it was drying. the start and spin lights were both flashing. I called
the company and they told me to reset it, but the weren't sure how, lol. I
unplugged it and waiting, nothing. I flipped the breaker, nothing. I
finally turned it to a setting, and turned on nob on the dry, and it
started clicking. I turned off the dry, and hit the start button, and it started right up...
If the next time you use it and it's fine then you did succeed in resetting the system and will be alright! Let me know that we were successful!
