Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse

Hi

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!!

Tks
Barry

Hello,

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.

Thanks.

Power button will not turn on dishwasher.


Make sure that power is reaching the control panel of your machine. Many people are offended when I tell them to check the fuse or circuit breaker to make 100% sure that the machine is receiving power.
If it is receiving power and not switching on, you will have to have the main control PC Board checked, out as this controls the entire machine. This is rather left to experienced persons.

Can not start run?


follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

Main Control Module / Timer

The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch. When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it does not respond at all you will need to replace main control module. this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.

If it trips after a few minutes of coming on , it is probably the heater which is faulty , disonnet it and try , if it doesn't trip you need a new heatee

Hotpoint Dishwasher BF1620 blew the main fuse circuit in fuse box during mid cycle wash? Re-set main power fuse circuit but now as soon as Dishwasher switched on immediately blows main kitchen power fuse...


This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.

My dishwasher seems to not be getting any power and no lights are lighting up. It is still plugged in and I already tried resetting breaker. Any suggestions?


HI. Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power.

If everything checks out ok with the above suggestion, the main control sector(timer or control board), will be the culprit.

The control sector must be replaced, in this case.
