Hi,
I had the same problem. Rather than pay 'an expert' to come round and try and fix it I thought I'd have a look myself first to see if there was anything obvious. After unplugging, safety first, I went to put it on it's side. As I did so water flowed from the bottom.
After cleaning up and taking the bottom panel off I found there was actually an overflow well at the bottom with a trip switch. There's a float which, if this well fills with water, rises and trips the dishwasher. Now I'm not sure if this trip swtich should just trip the dishwasher only and not the whole house ... so maybe there was another issue related to the water in the well touching something else. However, having emptied the well, tidied and dried things up a bit, put things back together ... it worked.

So ... before paying through the nose to get someone to come out and do this ... try it yourself first.

Please note, I'm not an expert, just someone who wanted to see if I could fix my dishwasher on my own. Just take care making sure your dishwasher is disconnected from the power, I mean totally unplugged before taking things apart. Good luck

The probably cause is a component in the dishwasher is leaking current to earth and tripping out an RCD. Common causes are the heater , pump and circulation pump. Also the wiring which goes into the door is prone to damage and rubbing on the metalwork of the door. You really need a multimeter to check components and isolate the offending component. It is possible to unplug individual parts , carefully insulate the wires , and see if it then trips.

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.
Sorry!
Be Blessed.

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.

Neff dishwasher trips the electricity


It could be faulty wireing in the dishwasher connection or you could have a leak in the washer causing the wires to get wet. I would have an electrician have a look at it.

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.
