Washing machine cuts out...why?


Recommended Posts

My old washing machine has started to cut out and blow the "fuse" as it starts the spin cycle. The extra effort involved seems to be too much for it !

This happens when all other electrical equipment is turned off.

Does anyone know a) what the problem is and b) how to cure it (apart from a new machine ) ?

Is it full of volcanic dust? [:)]

Yep too early for those suggestions [;-)]

Could try with the power off, removing the belt from the motor to the drum (less load) and trying to spin. Or connecting the motor via a test lead to the mains to see if it blows a fuse.

Or disconecting the motor and running it to spin to check the circuit board.

Lots of fun to be had [Www]
