July 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #50: My Washer Is Tripping The Circuit Breaker

Tip of the Week

Does your circuit breaker trip when using the washing machine? There are many potential causes for this problem, but some washing machine parts can be checked for malfunctions in this area. Your washing machine has a heater circuit, a motor assembly, water pump, and a drainage system. If water gets into the circuits, the motor, or other electrical washing machine parts, this can bring you some headaches like tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. If you are a beginner level do-it-yourselfer, you may not have the expertise to properly deal with this issue. Call in an expert who has the proper tools to diagnose this problem. If you understand how to handle low insulation fault issues, you most likely already have the equipment and know-hot to test your washing machine parts properly. Whether you own GE, Maytag, Kenmore, or other washer parts, you will need to examine the major components of the machine to figure out where the trouble lies.
