Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part of the cycle,the dishwasher trips the circuit breaker. If you reset the breaker and turn the sihwasher back on, the breaker trips again. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

Hi
\015\012
\015\012The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed.

Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

Hi there I've got a Miele G572 dishwasher that works perfectly, except that it trips the circuit breaker when it tries to fill with water. The heating works, the timer advances, the spary arms rotate and it drains well. It is a second-hand unit that worked for about 3/4 of the first cycle, then it tripped the earth leakage detector.

Hi In the middle of a wash cycle, my dishwasher tripped the circuit breaker on the wall. I diagnosed this by unpluggin dishwasher, plugging in a different appliance and switching circuit breaker back on. new appliance worked OK. When dishwasher had cooled, I tried it again on same circuit (which I knew was working properly). The lights came on for about three seconds, and then the circuit breaker cut back in again, so I knew it was the dishwasher that was causing the problem. Is there anyt

Our Dishwasher is not draining. We tried to run a test cycle and noticed there is no power. We checked the Electrical Panel and noticed that an unmarked breaker was tripped. We turned it on but still have no power. All other electrical items are working in the house. Is the power being cut off as a fail-safe function due to the water not draining? How do I fix the drain/pump? Please Help!

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli
