Re: 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.

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.

Dishwasher trips out as soon as switched on

Sounds like you have a dead short, perhaps in the motor.
Please do not attempt to start it as it might catch fire.
Someone needs to pull it out form the counter and find out the problem for you.

Dishwasher is 'tripping' electricity to the house fuseboard as soon as water heating begins in any cycle - cannot locate thermostat to test ?

This can be due to the fact that the heaters draw up more current than required and so trips the circuit. it will be important to remove and check the heaters, check if the contactors are faulty that feed supply to the heaters. Also if the trip is a ELCB- then with some leak in the circuit , motor, heaters, the circuit will trip. Hence check the electrical, check the ground on your dishwasher. Use an external ground and check

Power overload swith in the house has started tripping when the dishwasher is started

Is this happening only now! If it was working OK earlier and tripping now only it may be due to some electrical fault inside the machine.

Switch off all the high power appliances and try the dish washer. If it works you have to check the breaker overall power rating!

If it trips during dish washer ON, the fault could be in the heater circuit of your machine. Heater Insulation would have become weak etc.

I have a aeg 43070 vi dishwasher It keeps tripping the circit breaker on the house fuse box . I have reset the leak cutout by dipping the dishwasher back and stopped the warning sound,but went for about a...

I assume you are refering to the earth leakage circuit breaker. This trips when a earth leak fault has occured. The normal cause for this could be
A) Water leaking via a pipe at the bottom comming in contact with one of the electric motors at the base of the washer.
B) A heating element has gone faulty with a electrical leak to earth.
You need to test this with a multimeter on the OHMS scale and rectify any short to earth that the meter would indicate.
