Question about Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher
If your circuit breaker continues to trip when you try to operate your dishwasher from the recpetacle that you plug it in to, then buy an extension cord ( appropriately sized ) and try another receptacle that is not on the same breaker. Although notthe best approach, it will work for you. You might have to hire an electrician to upgrade the service or to dedicate a receptacle for the dishwasher only and that would cost considerably more than an extension cord. Look at the dishwasher tag to see what it is rated for in terms of Power and get an extension cord that is as short as necessary and sized for that appliance..
Also: Please contact me if the problem is not with the service but is the dishwasher itself and I may be able to assist in diagnosing that problem ...

I had a similar problem with my Indesit D63. The problem was caused when someone (ahem!) left the kitchen sink plug in. The diswasher waste is plumbed just above the sink's U-bend. This created a vaccuum preventing the dishwasher from pumping out the waste water. Eventually RCD tripped on the main fuse panel. Retrying with any other programs had the same effect.
What had happened was that the water reached the overfill "gun tower" - a plastic water level meter behind the lower arm slightly larger than a bottle cork. I guess this is a safety cut out to avoid flooding the kitchen.
I returned the next day and after doing some research, checked the water level which was just beneath the tower so I switched to soak, setting number 6 on the dial, ensured sink was unplugged and switched on. The washer stayed alive and completely drained in a few minutes. My guess is that enough of the hot water evaporated to reduce the overflow level.
My initial thoughts were that element or pump had gone. My plan was to try a cold rinse/soak, if it worked it was likely the element that had burnt out or let in water and needed replaced, if it didnt it was probably the pump. Thankfully it was neither.

Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
If so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.
