Lights flicker when in the wash cycle

When the washing machine starts in the wash cycle all of the overhead lights in the house flicker. The timing of the flicker is consistent with the rhythm of the machine. The washing is plugged into a 20 amp dedicated circuit and the wiring connections are correct and tight. Amperage on the motor fluctuates between less than 1 amp to as high as 7.4 amps during the wash cycle.

Apparently this is how new washers work. Our previous washer (had for over 20 years) never caused the light to flicker on the same circuit. When this happened with the new washer, I checked our house lines and even tried to plug the washer into a different breaker line and the light on that circuit also flickered. I even tried a new breaker. I called in a Maytag repair service. Everything apparently is OK with the washer. As per the service repairman, the government regulations have caused this issue. Safety regulations, reduced water usage regulations, and reduced electrical usage regulations are the cause. Washer machines now need to be on a dedicated circuit. Lights will flicker if they are on the same circuit as the washer.

I have the same issue. I have had a new 20 amp dedicated circuit put in for my washer and dryer and also had my power upgraded to my home and I still have this issue happening. My power company updated the wires to my home and my electrician also did an upgrade from the power companies line to my circuit breaker box. All new wires all new circuits. Why can i not have LED bulbs in 2 of my ceiling fans without the washer going?

Had the same problem. Washer is on dedicated circuit. I finally bought different LED bulbs and the problem went away. Apparently, some LED bulbs are susceptible to this, but others are not.

What brand LED bulbs did you buy that weren't susceptible to the flicker phenomenon?

This happens in our house as well, with normal incandescent bulbs, and scattered circuits that are not connected to the washers circuit. Our old washer barely affected lights, only upon starting each cycle. Our upstairs bedroom is on it's own circuit with it's own box and is affected. Tried on different circuits and was the same. If you listen closely, fans are also affected. To me it seems this kind of machine would be using more electricity than something that maintains a steady speed with a transmission, rather than a computerized electric motor.
