Got a Indesit Di620 Dishwasher that trips RCD after power up & immediateley as you shut door.Fault is definately related to pressure switch, disconnected pipe to switch and then able to start cycle, without tripping, small amount of water out of pipe,but cycle only lasts for a few minutes, then stops. ( blowing into pressure switch trips rcd )How can i test switch, or is it a water level problem ??Any help would be good, thanks S.C

No Power I have a bosch shx33 dishwasher. I just replaced the water valve because of a leak and now I can't start the dishwasher. It's like there is no power to the unit. I know there is power because I get a shock if I touch the two wires that are connected to the water valve. Is there another trip switch or something somewhere?

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.
