Dishwasher trips RCD electrics

My dishwasher will work on a rinse and hold cycle. However when it is on a normal wash cycle it trips the electric, I believe it's when it reaches the heating cycle. I have checked to see if it is a problem with any damage or cracks in the dispenser draw, but that looks OK. The heating element looks undamaged, it's a bit gray in colour, but generally looks OK. please help!! Thanks Diane

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker

rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle

Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol ABOVE the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the SANITIZE button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

I have a Whirlpool reset DU8900XY-1 Dishwasher and the power stopped in the middle of the cycle. There is water in the bottom of the washer. I checked the electric cords and everything looks good.

Most likely the thermal fuse has tripped. This could happen if the dishwasher overheats. The thermal fuse is in the base near the heater. I am not sure if you can reset it, you will have to find out by accessing it. Otherwise need to buy a new one and fit it in. Refer item 18 on this drawing . If it works, then you need to find the reason for overheat. Most likely faulty thermostat. Item 19.
Good luck.

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


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.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

Dishwasher tripping fuse box

Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f 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.
