Hi everyone, I have a problem with my generator and my washing machine.

I have in Spain a 4KVA Diesel machine. I am not sure what the engine is but I feel sure it is made in China.

It works fine for eveything except the washing machine. To operate that, we have to switch on a fan heater as well and adjust the settings as the wash progrsses.

Any ideas what the problem might be would be appreciated :)

Sounds like the washing machine is not taking linear current and upsetting the generator,what does the washer do without the heater connected?
