    My Elextroulx ESI602 dishwasher has the same problem it keeps tripping the fuse box 1/3 way through the wash!......its a pain, we forward the cycle on a bit and that seems to solve the problem! Taken to hand washing now........but 6 months on its too much.



    But we have no trouble when the machine is empty of crocks!

I had the same problem once before. It was only after a few months that we realised it was the dishwasher causing the power cuts. I looked behind the dishwasher to find the back of it had melted. I was renting at the time, so the real estate agent replaced it. Have a look behind yours to see if anything has happened to it.

After that, get some one out to look at it, or replace it.

This fault could be due to a leak, perhaps a small crack, in the soap tablet container. Over time the plastic in this container can become brittle and crack. When the machine reaches the time for the soap to be released the container door opens and exposes any cracks to the water. A small solenoid in the door opens the soap door but if water gets through to the solenoid it can cause a short and activate any RCDs or circuit breakers in the house. It can be fixed but it's a pain. What you need is two pieces of plastic (nylon preferably),large enough to cover the crack, and a good quality glue. Roughen the area around the crack and then glue one piece of plastic over it. Now split the door by removing the internal screws, locate the inside of the tablet box and prepare as above and glue the second piece of plastic over the inside of the crack. If care is taken this repair can last the life of the machine. WARNING!! MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS BEFORE CARRYING OUT ANY WORK! MAINS VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT INSIDE THE DOOR!

Oh oh. Most probably you have an ( electrical ) earth-leak in your dishwasher.(DW) In many cases this happens when the liquid in your DW must be heated. This heating is done by a resistor which you can see in the bottom of your DW ( a tube ).When heating up some liquid will get thru minor metal cracks in the outer resistance tube causing a path able to conduct some "leak"-current to the earth, and cause the the "differential" circuit breaker to switch off all current supply in house. ( Thanks it exist and works, it saved many lives) Best is to ask a repair-service to do the job; this can be done at your home.At the same time they have to check the thermal protection in the DW. If the resistor is not the failure, the electrical leak can come from other locations in the DW ; an isolation failure within the cabling or around the pump. It is not always evident to trace such an electrical leak, a repair service normally use a Megger ( this is real British ) to trace. Hopefully you don't have to manual dishwash too long.

Why my AEG F55080vi stops after drain cycle (program beginning) and then it stops and I hear 2 beeps and 2 flash continuously?


Definitely, water drain time-out. Error code i20.
The pressure switch doesn't return to EMPTY (1-2) after two drain phases lasting 120 seconds.
Possible causes:
Drain circuit obstructed/blocked; drain pump
interrupted or jammed (foreign bodies); level
pressure switch blocked on FULL (1-3); hydraulic
circuit of pressure switch obstructed; wiring faulty;
circuit board faulty.

Thanks to your detailed description of failure I conclude that in drain phase (after starts drain pump) leaks water and causing a short circuit. I would thoroughly reviewed drain hydraulic circuit. If is alarm displayed and there is no water inside dishwasher then check heater and anti-interference suppressor.

F1 and beeping


F1 means the drawer lid is not closing properly - (lid seal leaking) which caused water to splash out when you started the wash cycle. The flood circuit on base of dishwasher housing (under the bottom drawer) has tripped. You will have to find the source of leakage and also dry the base of dishwasher housing. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged form mains socket when you work in it.

My dishwasher lights up but won't turn off or on


1) Go to instruction manual and read section troubleshooting.

2) Test for some fuse blown or c.breaker reset.
3) TEST the switch door, if there are open the starting relais will not operate the main motor, see the diagram for better illustration.
4) The light would be in short, test and replace it.

No power


Hi,
The main PSU is part of the control board. You may be lucky to find an aged fuse to replace, but it's more likely a power transistor that's fried.

Unplug and remove the control board to see which bit's toasted. Chances are it's cheaper to replace the control board - but check the probable cause - the motors are not short circuited.

Hi
Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened.
Check the dishwasher wiring for a possible loose connection where it connects to the house wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers.
Check your house fuses or circuit breakers to make sure you have power to the dishwasher.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


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.

Smeg Dishwasher - model unknown


model numbers for dishwashers are generally where you can get to from the front, if they are noit on the front panel then look inside the door rim where the rubber seal is, either a small sticker on the door rim itself (inside) or where the door fits on the main cabinet, open the door fully to look for this sticker, sometimes placed under the front of the lid
