Hello gcsounds,
If I understand your problem correctly, it appears that you have a ground fault ( or earth fault) that is causing your breaker to trip. I am assuming ( but don't know for sure ) that your dishwasher is hard wired into a junction box and that junction box is fed power from your circuit breaker panel. I am also assuming that the circuit breaker is either a Ground Fault Interupt ( GFI ) or standard type and that breaker is what you are saying is tripping with every wash cycle. There are some details that need to be filled in for me by you in order for me to fully understand your wiring scheme and suggest ways to resolve your problem. First off, can you provide details on how your dishwasher is wired ( as I suggested above or other) and secondly, what voltage are you running it at? If you are in the US then in all probability you are running your dishwasher at 120VAC @ 60 hz but if you aren't then please elaborate. Once I have that information, I may be able to assist diagnosing and resolving your problem.
Regards,
Rick

I have a 4 year old model WGP 95 pump which has been running trouble free until a few weeks ago since when it has developed a recurring earth leakage problem which seems to make no sense. When operating...


I assume the RCD is an overload protection device. I would check the pressure side of your system and be sure it is clean. It sounds like it is building up back pressure. and overloading the pump motor.

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

No lights on prima lpr 600 dishwasher just keeps filling up with water not draining


When there is no light at all, and machine is stuck with inlet valve open from start, then it is probably a faulty timer control board.

Before replacing the control board , the inlet valve, wiring harness, and additional electronic controls must be tested.

Try also unplugging the appliance from main, or tripping circuit breaker to cut power for ten minutes. ~This may unlock a jammed control board.

Fridge keeps tripping electricity


I assume by "earth leakage" you mean it is on a GFI circuit? Some older GFI outlets are sensitive to and do not work well with motors or other inductive loads like your refridgerator compressor. As for the compressor feeling hot, this is usually normal.

If this is a GFI outlet, try replacing it with new unit. If it is a GFI breaker, try replacing that.

Continual beeping


I've had this problem a couple of times.. I filled a pan of water, poured it into the bottom, turned it on and made sure the pump was actually pumping.

I then unscrewed the dishwasher from the housing and turned off the water and electric, removed the outlet and gently rocked the dishwasher to try and dislodge anything inside the pipes.

Worked twice now anyway!

Hope this helps :)

Sounds like something may be blocking the pump, causing overload -- may need a service call.
