Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

GFCI keeps poping when I turn on the dishwasher


Sounds like your electrician miswired your GFCI oulet. They probably pulled power for your dishwasher off of the 20 Amp small appliance circuit required in all kitchens. This could be simple or difficult to fix, depending on where exactly they pulled power from. You will need to trace the dishwasher wire back to find out which receptacle box they pulled power from. If they pulled it from the first GFI outlet, you're in luck. Simply pull out the GFI and move the dishwasher pigtail from the LOAD side of the GFI to the LINE side of the GFI. If they pulled the dishwasher circuit from a receptacle downstream of the GFI, you will have to pull a new circuit for the dishwasher from somewhere else, as switching the branch circuit from LOAD to LINE at the GFI would defeat the ground fault protection for all outlets downstream of the GFI. Before doing all this, make sure there are no shorts to the frame of the dishwasher that could be causing the GFI to trip in the first place. If you need more detailed instructions, let me know. I'd be happy to walk you through it.

My Kenmore Ultrawash Quietguard Standard dishwasher won't start --or light up. I've checked the wall switch and circuit breaker and both seem okay. Darek Johnson darek_johnson@yahoo.com


Most dishwashers and other appliances using water, are protected by a Ground Fault Interrupter or GFI. These will sometimes trip without having detected any dangerous leakage current and others will get oversensitive causing them to trip well below their design current. A GFI wall socket will have two buttons on it; one to 'test' the other to reset. On some brands, when they are tripped, the reset button moves only a little further out and may not appear tripped. GFIs are also found combined with circuit breakers that also differ in appearance from the unprotected type and will also have a reset button. If your dishwasher is plugged in under the kitchen sink, check its appearance to see if it is GFI equipped.
BTW, these can be used in one location and connected so all of the wall plugs on the same circuit can be served by a single GFI equipped breaker so check any others nearby as well.
If a GFI refuses to stay set, it may be actually detecting some leakage current of a dangerous level so don't assume the GFI is bad, the appliance on it its circuit may have developed an internal problem.

All of a sudden, no power. will not start, no warning.


Before looking into your built-in dishwasher as the problem, check your main electrical panel to see if you have tripped a circuit breaker. If not, you may have tripped a GFI receptacle located on or around your kitchen counter.  If so, reset it! Then try the dishwasher. However, if this IS the problem, this may become an ongoing problem. I agree with (and its code) having a GFI breaker in your kitchen.  But what I don't agree with is when the contractor/electrician who installed this, didn't take into consideration that when these GFI's are put in series with other receptacles (for added protection) in the kitchen, they trip more easily when plugged in with certain appliances because of the motors (eg. refrigerators, dishwashers, etc.) in them. The GFI's sole purpose is for protecting you around the sink where there's running water. It trips on milliamps so you won't get electrocuted around the sink. Also, if you have other appliances running at the same time the dishwasher's running, makes them more susceptible to trip. So in conclusion, first check for power. Second, check for GFI breaker (or vice versa). I believe you should find your problem here. If so, reset it and wait to see how and when this does it again. GFI breaker's are sensitive breakers. They tend to wear out before a regular outlet (receptacle) does. Not knowing how long and old this (GFI) receptacle is, I'd replace that if it happens more frequently. This usually does the trick. I hope it's not your built-in dishwasher. If so, feel free to contact me again, and I'll help you with that too. Good Luck with this, and I hope you get everything back in working order. Take care, Jim

When I plug in my dishwasher it trips my test fuse and none of my plug sockets work. Do I need a plumber or electrician?


Electrician. You have a short in the dishwasher which is an electrical problem. Is it tripping GFI outlet. If so the GFI is probably weak or overloaded. Try regular outlet not on the GFI circuit and see what happens.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II. Does nothing at all when you try to start it. Seems latched tightly and I double-checked and reset the circuit breaker. Thoughts?


CHECK THAT THERE IS VOLTAGE AT THE CONNECTION TO THE D/W. CHECK WALL SWITCHES, GFI OUTLETS FOR TRIPPED, THAT THE WATER TO D/W US ON. IF IT TRIPPED CIRCUIT BREAKER. MAY BE SHORTED INTERNALLY.

I have a 9 yr old KUDS01IJBSO and there is no power to the control panel and the breaker is not tripped. Is this likely to be an electronic control panel failure?


check the outlets, may be a GFI outlet tripped, check the switches with washer on. If you have aluminum wire in house may be the connection to the washer.

My lg dishwasher trips the GFCI outlet on about 1 in 3 runs. I can usually reset it and it will run to the end, but it is aggravating to say the least and I worry that it may indicate a short.


Replace the GFCI, it may be defective. If that doesn't correct the problem, there may not be anything that you can do; GFCI monitors the current that passes from the hot to the neutral wire, and trips when the amperage is unbalanced. GFCI tripping may not indicate a problem with the machine

Dishwasher problem Model number GSD2200LO1


No, he didn't do anything wrong. Swithching to energy saver setting only prevents power from going to the heating element during the drying portion of the cycle. I suspect that you have no power going to the dishwasher. Check the household breaker for the dishwasher. If that is not tripped (probably not) then your dishwasher power may be supplied through a GFI (ground fault interupter) protected outlet which has tripped. Look around the kitchen for GFI recepticles, as there may be several. Power may even be fed from a GFI from another room, such as a bathroom. Push the reset on all GFI recepticles you can find. You can purchase a small pen sized tester for under $20 which will show if a wire is carrying power without even thouching an actual wire. Pick one up at a hardware store to help see if power is reaching your dishwasher if you need more help.

Have you checked the breaker? Is the dishwasher on its own circuit or on shared circuit with the kitchen outlets? If shared with the kitchen, might one of your GFI's be tripped?
