Thank you for using JustAnswer!
If you have any questions after reading my answer,be sure to let me know.

At a guess the heater in the washing machine has become leaky. Are
you in a hard water area?

Either that and you now have more electronic kit with switched mode
power supplies all of which will have supression components across
the mains that all leak a bit and that this has now added such that
the total is enough to trip the RCD.
Not a home handy person fix! You may need a hands on tech on location this time.
