Question about Hotpoint 23 in. BF50 Built-in Dishwasher
Thank you for the great help you give to others, really something which is highly regarded and commanded by anyone and appreciate your time and effort in all that.
I wonder if you could help me with my problem. We have got this Bosch SGS5022GB/20 dish washer for the last 9 years and were working fine. Suddenly, from yesterday, every time we try to start it cause the main RCP to drop and cut off the sockets power. It doesn’t cause the fuse to trip or anything just the RCP. Do you have any idea why is that and what would be the possible reason?
We found few drops of water underneath the dish washer which suggest some leak from somewhere.
thank you very much in advance

Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.

SOURCE: dishwasher trips the house mains
It sounds to me like you have got water in the Main wash pump, you need to turn of at the mains and put a meter across one of the main tags on the pump and the the other on the pump body, if you get a reading on the meter theres your problem. The only othere thing would be the heater which you can test in the same way.

HI THIS SOUNDS LIKE A CIRCUIT BOARD FAULT PROBABLY BLOWN 3 SMALL COMPONENTS & A BIT OF TRACK ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND SIDE OF BOARD.IT IS USUALLY ONE OF 2 FAULTS THAT CAUSE THIS EITHER A MOTOR PROBLEM IE CARBON BRUSHES TOO LOW OR FAULTY MOTOR THE OTHER THING THAT USUALLY BLOWS THE BOARD IS THE DOOR INTERLOCK GOING FAULTY. I HAVE REPAIRED LOADS OF THESE BOARDS & 9 TIMES OUT OF 10 ITS ONE OF THEM THAT BLOWS IT HOPE THIS HELPS!

I had the same problem with my Hotpoint Aquarius the eco and fast light flashing, it would go through the pre wash cycle and stop.
I cleaned the filters etc; and it still didn’t work.
I turned the machine off and unplugged it at the mains,
I drained all the water, turned the machine on the side and took the bottom off, I removed the drain pump off the bottom (this was held on with a single screw after taking the screw out slightly turn it to one side as its like a bayonet fit on a light bulb also remove the wire connection and a rubber drain pipe)
Once the pump was removed I could clearly see the impellor it was very tight and I couldn’t spin it after a closer examination I could see a foreign object jamming it I removed this with a pair of tweezers, replaced the pump and put it all back together and it now works perfectly.
I hope this can be of some help.

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
