Default Any idea how to fix the washer?

It trips the breaker. Changed the breaker so that's not the problem. Company came out Friday and it worked for a day. They are coming back out tomorrow but no guarantee of anything. It experienced a voltage surge after Hurricane Irma and a capacitor was replaced, not sure if that's related.

Anything I can do?

Have them replace the machine, unless you own it, which you are finding is a mistake.

I had a washing machine that the water seal started to leak on to the motor and then the breaker popped . I put a piece of plastic to form a protector over the motor. I ran with out popping the breaker for a couple of months , by then the leak was worse and had to change the whole unit. it cost a lot to replace the seal, and was not worth it to spend a lot of money on a used machine .
