Problem with short circuits
I have an electrical issue at my home, and hope I can get some input here:
Since October, I have a new washing machine. Everything went well until May, when I started having short circuits while the washer was running, i. e. total power outages in my apartment. First, I thought it had to do something with an upgrade in the electric system in the house (after more than 40 years, it had to be adapted to modern standards, so new breaker boxes were installed), but now a neighbor gave me a fuse, which we plugged in at the washing machine - and this fuse just broke while I did the laundry this morning. So I guess that is a proof that my washer is the problem? Is there a way to repair it? I would welcome any advice or suggestions!
