Washer tripping

Recommended Posts

I have a Beko washing machine and it's about 9 years old.
Just recently the pause/cancel button has been very hit and miss as to whether it works or not, but other than than the machine has been working fine; but yesterday when I switched on the machine the lights came on as usual but just as the cycle was about to start my electrics tripped. I put it back on and again it tripped, I switched off the washing machine at the mains and all was fine, but the minute I switched the machine back on it tripped again.

I'm guessing it can't be the fuse in the plug as if that had blown then surely I wouldn't get any lights coming on at all. Before I call out an electrician or buy a new machine I just wanted some advice/opinion as to what the cause could be please.
The machine is kept in my kitchen so no damp affecting it.

Thanks in advance,

Hello there. It may be related to the dodgy button but may well be something totally different. This is a fault that needs a special test meter to diagnose Washing Machine Tripping or Fusing Electrics
