I have brought over my brand new un-used Washing Machine and Tumble Dryer from the UK. But I have a problem. I cut of the pre-moulded UK plug and changed it to the 3 pin Ozzie plug, but it tripped the switched. Went back to Bunnings and changed the plug from a 10 amp standard ozzie plug to a 15 amp ozzie plug one. Only to realise that the pins were to big for my sockets, thus I went back to Bunnings, got the smaller pin 15 amp ozzie plug and yet again it always trips my main switch.
I put the English plug back on with the right fuse and used it with an adapter and it still tripped also tried it with a extension socket and it still tripped.
Not sure what to do? Any advice will be very much appreciated.
