I'm a newbie so please be gentle... Help me please - I'm going loopy!!! My LG F1480YD5 washer dryer is tripping the RCD on my house consumer unit due to water travelling up the pressure tube and spraying on the power filter pcb during the spin cycle. So far, I have (here we go...): Replaced the power filter pcb, replaced the pressure switch, replaced both impeller pumps, removed and cleaned out the rubber boot between the pumps and filter, removed and cleaned the filter, removed and cleaned the drain pipe and I have cleaned out the outlet pipe in my kitchen with is only for the washer dryer. When the RCD trips, I remove the top cover from the washer dryer, remove the power filter pcb and dry it and the associated connectors with a hairdryer for a few minutes, put it all back together again and hey presto, it works! Can anyone shed any light on this for me please? Finally I would like to say all help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers
Hi Andy, I have the following issue with a Beko WMI71641. I will give a detailed description of the fault and hopefully you could point me to the fault. I am at a loss. The machine is 2 years old and was working fine until a few weeks ago. The machine trips the electrics at 3 points in any washing programme. I will give the description of the quick wash programme as that is the one we use most ofthe time. The machine has a time to run of 39 minutes in total and works wonderfully for about 19 minutes, then with 20 minutes to go, the machine starts to drain and the electrics trip. After resetting the electrics a few times the machine continues until 16 minutes remain and it drains again, yep the electrics trip. after resetting a few times the machine runs again for a further 6 minutes and then drains again, and you guessed it, the electrics trip. after resetting again the machine completes it cycle with no further issues. My first thought was the pump, however, the machine drains at 28 mins and has no issues at this point. But toi be sure I replaced the pump and after inspecting the PCB i replaced that as well because there was a small IC burnt along with several diodes on the board. Having made these changes the machine still trips the electrics at the 3 points mentioned earlier. I have replaced the RCD in the main board too thinking this might be causing the issue. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.
