Ok if its tripping the electrics when you turn it on then its usually either the wash heater or the motor as them 2 are the most common things to cause this fault that you have.

What you need to do is pull the washer out and remvoe the back cover t the bottom.

There you will see the wires going to the wash heater.

Disconnect the wires on there and insulate them so the are out of the way and then turn the washer on. If it starts without tripping then the wash heater is the fault and will need to be replaced.

But if the heater is fine then still looking at the back you will see the motor. Disconnect the wiring block on there and do the same and see if it stops tripping out.

Check them both and see what you find and let me know.

Sorry a bit confused about what you mean on the last half of your replie.

Is it not tripping when you unplug the motor wiring?

Also is has the mains filter were the power cable goes to burnt out?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
thats were it burn
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 6 months ago.

Ok if they are burnt then you need to replace the mains filter/cable as it comes with the power cable attached to the mains filter and then you need to retag the wires as well.

But this usually doesnt cause a tripping fault like you have. So you may find the motor is also fault from what you said above when you disconnected the motor it ran without tripping. When it does this its usually means the motor is faulty as well.
