Question about Dishwashers
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 have yet to move the dishwasher out as its integrated but wondered if anyone had any ideas before I call out a plumber!!
My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.
Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.
Always use a fully qualified electrician though.
