DW trips cicuit breaker

My Asko DW rips the circuit breaker at the end of the cycle. This happens with the heat turned off i.e. the heated fan dry is off. I cycled the selector switch through manually and the breaker tripped at the same point (just prior to 6 on the switch).

Re: DW trips cicuit breaker

I have seen a lot of these older dishwasher break the wires running up to the timer. the break right near the bottom of the door where they flex when you open and close it. I would turn of the power, remove all the torx screws along the inside edges of the door, as well as the 2 on the bottom edge of the door facing up (you cant see them, just gotta feel around for them) and loosen the 2 on the top of the door near the latch ( so you can tilt the control panel out to remove the outer door) follow the wires from the timer down to the bottom of the door and see if any are broken or missing insulation. If not, take the bottom panel of the dishwasher as well and locate the 2 terminals hooked to the heater and check them with an ohmeter to see if they are grounded to the frame of the dishwasher. the dishwasher may be doing a heated rinse just before the dry cycle even though you have low temperature and no heated dry selected, so the problem may still be the heater. Good Luck!

Dishes are soaking wet at end of cycle. Is this normal?

No, it's not normal for them to be soaking wet at the end of the cycle, but there are things that can affect this. First, make sure you have Heated Dry selected. Next, make sure you are using rinse-aid (Jet Dry), because the new dishwashers don't use as much heat as the older dishwashers, and Jet Dry will greatly aid in the drying. Be aware that plastics won't get dry in any dishwasher. Other things you can do is turn on the extra heat options in the wash cycle, and turn on the Sani-Rinse option (if you DW has such options). Otherwise, you may have a heater or controller problem.

Dishwasher trips out after running for a while

When you say "trips out" do you mean the circuit breaker trips? If so the breaker in the electrical box may be bad. Also do you have anything on that circuit pulling high amps when the dishwasher is running? Also when does it "trip out" during a pump cycle or when the heating element cycle starts?
If the pump does not work at all then the pump may have went out. If it happens when the heating element cycle starts then it may be the circuit is overloading or the breaker is bad.

Viking dishwasher VUD040 keeps tripping the circuit breaker during drying cycle

Are you sure the breaker is big enough to carry the Amps needed to start the drying cycle. You know that due to inductance it takes almost twice as many amps to start a motor as it does to run it.Find out how many Watts it uses and divide it by 120VAC and it will give the maximum amps it will draw. See if the breaker is high enough amp for it. A 25 Amp breaker should be efficient. I hope this helps you and if I can help you in anyway in the future let me know.

Dishwasher runs fine but trips circuit breaker at end of cycle

Your heating element might be shorted. Try turning off heated dry and see what happens.

Our BDW 13 keeps tripping our fuse board

your cicuit is overloaded. hook the DW up to its own cicuit, or at least one that will not overload it. Circuits should not be loaded to more than 80% of their capacity. 15 Amp load no more than 12 amp.
when motors/pumps start they use the most load or power, or when your DW turns on the heat.

Blows fuse in drying cycle

drying uses more power, most likely overloading your circuit. You will have to put your dishwasher on a different circuit, or move some of the stuff you have on the cicuit with it to another circuit.

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part...


The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and Revert for further assistance.

Dishwasher power overload

Check heating element in DW and all parts associated with it located on the inside of DW under the spray arm. It could also be a problem with the control panel,Call technician.
