Yes check for a heater element down to earth or at least a wire on the element off and touching the case, but i am confident its a heater element, rate me when you fix it, work with safety unplug when working on machines

Gfci trips. Hi - I have had my Saeco for 10 years now. Since earlier today the gfci trips whenever I am trying to use it. Any ideas? Thank you!


GFI safety trips whenever it detects moisture. Normally this happens when water splashes over when filling or brewing coffee. This has happened to me several times. You must dry the machine out totally inside and out. I have used a hair dryer successfully both times. It is possible that you have a short circuit. If you want to veryif that it is moisture and not a short circuit, plug your unit into an outlet that is not GFI protected. If it kicks the breaker, then you definately have a short circuit in the machine. This would require dismantling the machine to find where hot wires have come into contact with bare gound.

Kenmore 80 series filled with water but now will not drain or agitate. It has just died. Any ideas how I can at least get the water out?


You might check your circuit breaker box to see if any of the circuit breakers are tripped. A tripped circuit breaker will have its handle between on and off. If one is, push it off, then back on. The only way I can think of to get the water out is to pull the clothes out and dip it out. sorry. Best of Luck

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current

Washer trips circuit while filling tub


Sound like the inlet valve coil may be shorted. Remove console and check wires from water valve to control. If wires look ok, the inlet valve has a problem

LG LRM2060ST trips circuit breaker sometimes


needs to have circuit of its own rated @ 20 amps powered by # 12-2-wg wire , also very good idea to plug into a good surge protector to protect its control board, as any computer the boards are very susceptible to spike voltage caused by lightning and power problems , as to how it worked before , breakers vary a little in the amount of current it takes to trip them with age , the number of time they have to be reset and heat they have been subjected to over a period of time so it is not unusual for say one 20 amp breaker to trip @ 16 and another @19 for example also the length of wire between the breaker and the appliance can effect the trip range

Amana washer won't fill with water


1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.

Washer trips circuit breaker


Is washer relatively new? Check circuit breaker for proper size (20 AMPS). Washer must also be on its own circuit. It appears that when the motor starts up it is causing a spike in current (as with any motor), so the breaker is either undersized (Note that if breaker is undersized and you up it to the next size you would also need to replace the wire with the next size up which would be 12/2 with ground), or if you have had your washer a while which I believe is your case the circuit breaker is weakening and is tripping on the current spike. Try swapping out your circuit breaker with a new one and try running the washer again.
