Question about Neff 24 in. S5456 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher shorts out our electricity supply

The dishwasher is about 4 years old but has been very lightly used.
Recently, we have had problems with the electricity supply in our house randomly tripping out.
After many visits by our local electricians, it is clear that the dishwasher is causing the problem.
We we leave the dishwasher unplugged, we have no problems.
As soon as we plug it into the socket, the electricity shots out.
The electricians say that the circuits in the house are OK; it ia the dishwasher that is the problem.
Do we have to replace it?
Is this a common problem?
Many thanks, Maurice Hastings.

My IKEA dishwasher Renlig DWT160 will not turn on no lights. I've checked the fuse and power supply


If the unit is totally dead, the main board most likely is blown. You say you checked the "fuse"--is there a fuse on the dishwasher or are you referring to the electrical panel fuse box in your house? Did you recently have a power outage? Usually, within 3-4 weeks after having one, appliances will start failing due to damaged chips on the main control boards. The problem could also be a damaged user interface board. If 120volts is getting to the main board but the unit is dead, I'd highly suspect the board is bad. I've also seen lots of bug infestation damage to boards--classic signs are roach tracks in and around the boards--they're attracted to the warmth and will walk across the live boards, shorting them out.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.13193k902 blinking clean light


Most likely a problem with the temperature sensing that lets the dishwasher heater run without turning off. Not sure why the thermal fuse does not cut in to protect the heater.

The information on this site should help narrow the problem.http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dishwasher/28-6-878055-/Kenmore-Dishwasher-lights-flashing-or-blinking-66513193K902

Bosch dishwasher SHE44CO2UC/22 no power or light, no response to the power on. We have checked fuse box and electrical supply. Is this an electrical panel problem? Is there a "fuse" to the dishwasher?


Hi sir,
first thing to say is that whether it may be an short circuit between circuits,,or due to an over voltage the fuse may be burnt,,please check the control panel..back of dishwasher,,,
if u checked fuse and circuit,,and think no problem with incoming voltage ,,the control panel's capacitors or resistors may be burnt..
if so please go to a tech,,,,,
thank u,,,for using fixya

Drying light keeps flashing


You said,
Drying light keeps flashing and beeping. dishwasher will not start. turned off circuit breaker and turned back on same thing happened again.

It seems you have an electrical fault in the dishwasher and it will not permit the start of the motor,
as a safety guard.
You must have the electrical system checked for shorts .
Otherwise the motor is dead!


huuum,happy to assist you!



How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You, let me know how it goes.

Dishwasher tripping electrics


Check the wiring between the door where it goes underneath. Sometimes it will wear and short out. Another possible solution If you can see the dry element feel it for holes or missing pieces. If it burns out it will usually short out just like the oven element on an electric stove.
