indesit washer. model iwe81681. this machine banged and tripped the house circuit breaker. after resetting the machine did the same thing.
Hi If the washer is tripping out the electrics as soon as you turn it on then the most common cause of this is the heater element at the back of the drum. Remove the back panel and disconnect the wires to the heater and then turn it on and see if it stops tripping. If it does then its the heater that's the cause and you will need to replaced this. If its not the heater then do the same to the motor, Disconnect the wiring block to the motor and try that and see how it goes. As them 2 are the most common parts to cause this kind of fault. Check them out and see what you find and let me know. Regards
