Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Main power safety tripping when i turn on dishwasher power - Help

\015 Hoping someone could help. When I turn on my Westinghouse freestyle 920 dishwasher, it trips the mains power (safety switch). It never had this problem before. Any advice would be appreciated. Not sure whether to pay someone $200-$300 to fix a 9 year young dishwasher or just buy a new one for $300 more which inclues a warranty. Money we can't afford. Why do these things happen when you're tight on cash!\015

Hobart AM14/1 free standing dishwasher with booster. Booster will not heat up beyond 41C. All three heating elements check ok with Ohm meter. High limit not tripped. Temperature screw up at maximum, when you turn the screw, you can hear thermostat click at lower temperature on and off. When turning on main power for dishwasher, heater in dishwasher works fine, but no relays click in the booster tank area. Have not checked for power at booster, have checked all fuses with meter and are ok. Ple

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).

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!

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

Our Bosch dishwasher #SHU9922UC (FD8007) will not turn on properly. Only its drain pump starts -- and keeps running -- when it's powered on and the door's closed. Pressing the two "drain cancel" buttons for more than 3 seconds doesn't help. Neither does cutting off power, then turning it back on in the hopes of resetting the machine's 'computer'. No water inflow occurs. Help?


I had a similar issue after I replaced a bad drain pump, seems the logic got hung up.. I poured in a pitcher of water, closed the door, it drained and was then ok - worth a try. If not, you may have a bad water level switch. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher Normally, after the dishwasher cleans the load, it displays green light next to clean. Once the door is opened, the light goes off an dishwasher is ready for next load. But from few days, after opening the dishwasher door, the clean light does not go off, it remains lit. Dishwasher doe snot reset for next cycle. So, I have to go in the basement and trip the main power to dishwasher. That resets the dishwasher. This needs to be done before each cycle. Not sure how to resolve the issue.
