My dishwasher is causing my power to trip any ideas why


Answers :

It will do that if it's consuming far too much power due to a fault, or if there is leakage to earth.

Both indicate dangerous internal electrical faults with too many potential causes to diagnose remotely without the correct diagnostic tools.

Disconnect the machine and do not use it until it has been checked over by a qualified domestic appliance service engineer.
You have something in short, in 90% from the cases I haved the heateng element craked (in shortcircuit). or ypur washer have a leak and make a power failure (if i understud what you want to tell ) for fix that you mast try to find what is tacke at the ground (whit a meter) or call an repairman (sory beacause my english is bad)

The dishwasher takes water in (not to much as when you open the door later, there is hardly water visible) and then it sounds as if it is busy heating the water. Then all of a suddden it will trip the power switch on the distribution board. My impression is that it is not takingin enough water and the heating part causes the trip failure. Your comments and advice to resolve will be aapreciated. Planning to open it up this weekend (machine not that old)

Dishwasher I have had above integrated dishwasher which is intermittently tripping the mains fuse. Power is getting to dishwasher and the washing cycles work until a certain point (not the same time) where a loud bang can be heard and the main fuse is tripped. Reset the main fuse and power still gets to the dishwasher and it works again. It has just started to trip the fuse when its not running any cycle (just when power is getting to it). I've checked the fuse on the spur and it looks ok. I hav
