Dishwasher I have had above integrated dishwasher which is intermittently tripping the mains fuse.

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

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

We have a Siemens dishwasher SE25M851. It had the check water light on, so we have checked all water flows which seem fine. There is what I think is an Aquastop connected to the water hose, which I have no idea if the problem is there, but when I now put the dishwasher on there is a burning smell coming out of it, so have had to turn off power supply. Can you shed any light to the problem?
