Our Maytag Bravo washer has started tripping the circuit…

Customer Question
Our Maytag Bravo...

Our Maytag Bravo washer has started tripping the circuit breaker on final spin cycle. We had an electrician check the power source and could find nothing wrong. He visually checked for any loose wires on the washer itself and everything seemed fine. The machine is about 20 months old and this problem developed over the last month. We wash only for the two of us so load capacity is small and the load balance seems fine as it spins. -- Thanks.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

W10783959A Maytag Bravo about 20 months old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, unless it s covered by warranty.

How fast does it spin before blowing the breaker?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Full speed, but stops after about 30 seconds.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 1 year ago

That typically would be a board issue you may have a failed triac on the board then it will send voltage to the motor the opposite direction and will blow the breaker. Have you checked under it for any signs of leaking? Just in case it is a water issue or something like that?

Was able to examine carefully and no signs of leaking, present or past.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 1 year ago

OK if that is all ok I would say it is a defective board I have run across that quite a few times with that same issue. You may want to call Whirlpool and see if they will do something for you as the part is about $300

I will be checking out a new control board. My credit card had an additional $25.00 charge. If you can clear that up, I won't have to dispute it. -- Thanks
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 1 year ago

I am not sure I have not been paid anything, the site will only pay me only if you supply good star rating. I have nothing to do with any credit card charges.
