Newbie hoping for some help.
Out of the blue about 2 weeks ago, my protected ring circuit tripped for no apparent reason. Reset it and all seemed fine.
However, since then whenever I've tried to use my washing machine the same circuit has tripped. Even when I unplug every other appliance it still trips the circuit.
The odd things is the washing machine WASN'T switched on when it first tripped.
I've checked fuses and replaced a faulty double plug socket, but something still seems to be overloading the circuit whenever the washing machine is switched on.
On the same circuit I've got a TV, cable TV box, Broadband modem, network router, PC and fridge running most of the time, with heating, other kitchen appliances, laptop and lighting on at various times.
Any help much appreciated.
