We have new LG 4500 washing machine in new townhouse w Siemens breaker panel. LG Washer keeps tripping the breakers (15A Siemens Type QAF2 - CAFCI - w ARC Fault). I hooked up the washer to a 15A Surge Suppressor - worked fine for a few times - maybe under 10 wash loads) - then started tripping again. Guess the surge suppressor got fried???
Anyway, LG Techie recommended replacing the breaker with a Siemens 15 Amp AFCI/GFCI Q115DF Dual Function Circuit Breaker. LG Techie said the design of the new Siemens breakers installed in my panel is faulty and Siemens has not fixed the faults yet. But my situation with the new townhouse, with warranty and everything, I have to get everything done thru the builders. Still have to hear back from them if they will replace the original breaker with the recommended one. Hopefully it works. Will update posting with developments.
Has anybody had any success with the recommended breaker?
