I have a 70series model 110 washer that is 20+ years old. Never had a problem until this week.

Last time I tried to use it the machine filled with water for the wash cycle and then tripped the fuse breaker. I re-set the breaker and turned the machine back on - it worked about 10 seconds and tripped the breaker again.

When I re-set the breaker a second time and tried to turn the machine back on it just makes a humming sound and will not respond to any of the controls no matter what position I try (spin, wash, rinse, etc.)

It is in a tight spot in the basement and I would love to get it back up and running for another year or so until I move out of this house.

Any ideas? Thanks much!

** 70 series model 110 washer that is 20+ years old. **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number ("110" is only the very start of it) . If you post it we can look it up to see what appliance design you're dealing with.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** the machine filled with water for the wash cycle and then tripped the breaker. **

Did it complete the fill and was it suppose to start agitating (ie. using its motor) right when it occurred?

** I re-set the breaker and turned the machine back on - it worked about 10 seconds and tripped the breaker again. **

It sounds like its drawing too much current... for whatever reason. If it occurs when the motor should be running, a problem in the motor may be a possibility.

** will not respond to any of the controls no matter what position I try (spin, wash, rinse, etc.) **

How about fill?

Thanks for replying.

Model number is 110.82670110

*Did it complete the fill and was it suppose to start agitating (ie. using its motor) right when it occurred?*

I'm not really sure - I wasn't near the machine although the water level seemed high enough to be complete.

** will not respond to any of the controls no matter what position I try (spin, wash, rinse, etc.) **

*How about fill?*

No, it will not respond to anything.

Thanks again.

** No, it will not respond to anything. **

But it IS making a humming sound??

(which should be an indicator it was getting power)

If it is not doing anything nor making any sounds, someone will need to confirm power is actually getting to the washer.

The washer is likely going to need to be checked out to determine the cause. Keeping trying to run it when it's tripping the breaker isn't good for the breaker... nor likely for parts of the washer either. It might be time to call a service technician.

Having trouble opening the back of the washer is there a trick to it?
