SOURCE: tripping out

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.

SOURCE: My dishwasher is tripping the electric.

Usually time to replace the heating element. The element is sealed inside a metal tube packed with a dry powder to insulate it. If the outer tube leaks (and it only takes a pinhole), the powder gets wet and stops insulating. It only takes a tiny earth leak to take modern trips out. If your dishwasher is one of those where the element is visible in the bottom of the compartment you load the dishes into, replacing it yourself ought to be straightforward. If it's buried in the works, whether you want to tackle it yourself or pay someone else to do it depends on how confident you are. Either way, it shouldn't be catastrophically expensive. A.

SOURCE: my dishwasher trips out on certain cycles

sounds like faulty wiring inside unit. your circuit breaker is detecting an overload current condition...must look inside for wire touching frame. if none found, then wire fault may be inside of a device like motor or solenoid, so check these with ohmeter to ground-each wire (except chassis gnd) must be isolated from ground.

SOURCE: washing machine

Sounds like you may have a corrosion issue or water ingress, causing a short. Could be a corroded heater, water in the main control board, water in the pump motor - the list is endless. Most washers tend to run the pump to ensure drum is drained before starting the cycle, so it would be probable that the problem is in the pump area.

You don't say if the main switch is an RCD or an ELB. I presume it's an RCD.

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

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
