Your dishwasher has a serious electrical safety fault which is causing the protective breaker to trip (although it may have a simple and cheap cause). With all due respect, your question clearly demonstrates that you lack the knowledge and skills to carry out a diagnosis and a safe repair (especially vital for anything which uses water and electricity). Before doing anything else, fully disconnect your machine from the main electricity supply by either unplugging it or for a machine connected to a flex outlet by turning off the wall switch and then removing the fuse.
Sorry, but in this instance you only have two choices: get a qualified dishwasher repair engineer in or replace the machine. Anything else could be lethal.
Noise may be coming from faulty parts, but it also may be caused by improperly loaded dishes. heck your owner's manual for proper loading methods.Next, when the dishwasher is completely cool, look in the openings around the pump at the bottom of the dishwasher's interior be sure no implements or hard debris such as bones, fruit pits, or silverware are stuck in them.
Be sure your dishwasher is sitting level. Adjust the feet beneath the unit by screwing them up or down. If there are lock nuts on the feet, make sure they are tight.
A thumping or chattering sound during the filling cycle usually indicates that the inlet valve needs to be replaced. Unless you're handy with this sort of repair, this is a job for a repairperson.

this problem is not common specially in dishwasher..ur dishwasher might be stuck in running mode with the motor overloaded and that is the cause that ur house electricity suply is tripping.. i suggest u replace it .. for a new one... it might be harmful for ur house appliances.
My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.
Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.
