I decided to install a GFCI outlet for my washer and dryer. I purchased the
latest version that completely stops the current and a little light goes on
when it is tripped. The service panel has a 15 amp fuse for the washer and
Can low voltage trip one of these outlets? This was a few days ago. We
only have 80 amp service. Two AC's were running at the time but on other
The washer and dryer circuit has two 2-receptacle outlets and one
1-receptacle outlet for a total of five plug receptacles. So there are a
washer, dryer, cordless dust buster, an emergency lamp and radio.
I didn't see it but I was told turning on the 10 watt clock radio tripped
the GFCI outlet. The washer and dryer were running. I don't know how this
could have happened. I tried to reproduce it just on the Washer and dryer
circuit but I couldn't. Any Ideas?
