GE Washing Machine WDSR2080DBWW trips breaker

6 posts in this topic

When the cycle gets to drain or spin, it trips the breaker. I've disconnected the motor plug, same thing happens. I can drain tub by connecting pump on its own plug. I've replaced the timer, same results. Checked the lid switch, its ok. I've checked for shorts in wiring but find none. Any other ideas? Thanks

Tried a different circuit and the same thing happened. It trips when the wash cycle ends. Thanks

Attach your meter leads to the pump wires and turn the unit on in SPIN and record the voltage. If it trips without being attached to the pump your pump power supply wiring is bad.

The pump does not have a short because I can run leads directly to it and plug it in and it works fine. I am leading towards shorted wires but upon examining them, no shorts are found. The other possibility I'm considering is that the new timer is bad.
