Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher is "tripping" the breaker & not draining.

In the middle of a wash cycle, the dishwasher quit & there was a "burnt" smell in the air. I checked the circuit panel & saw that it had tripped the breaker. I flipped the breaker back on & tried a "quick wash" to see if it would finish the job, but it tripped again. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher that won't drain & the dishes are not clean.
What should I do.

I had the same problem with a Hobart AM8 passthru dishwasher. The electrician determined that some of the wires had become exposed and were wet, thus shorting things out and tripping the breaker.

Unit quit in the middle of a cycle and won't power up, totally dead. Is there a suspect noise filter or fuse I should begin looking for?


Make sure your circuit breaker in the main breaker box has not tripped, or "poped". It will be one a little out of place and a bit loose if it has tripped. Turn it off and back on to reset. If it tripps immediately, you have a short somewhere, possibly in the dishwasher, so you will need an electrician and or Appliance tec. to find and fix.

Moffat washer (mcch6110hww GE?) trips breaker shortly after start of cycle. Can this be repaired?


Sounds like your drum brake is engaging. Fixing it is fairly cheap. YouTube it and watch a few videos on how to do it if your fairly handy.

My dishwasher was in the middle of a cycle and it just quit. The buttons dont light up. It doesn't turn on at all. What could be wrong with it?


Sonya, have you checked the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel to see it has been tripped? Also, is the dishwasher door tightly shut? If the breaker is tripped, reset it to see if the dishwasher trips it again. If it does, either breaker is faulty or the dishwasher has a short circuit in the electrical circuitry. You'll need an authorized service person for that.

Drum full of water. stopped during cycle will not start-up again.


It sound's like you need a new drain pump and maybe a main motor controller module if it still doesn't go. cheers

NO Agitator, draining or spin


Since the breaker did not trip i am going to assume that the washer stopped because the motor overload switch tripped or contacts burnt. Was there any smell of any burning (electrical burning)?. It could have stopped because a contact on the timer got burnt too. Have a look also at the water level swirch

Jenn_air model #JD8910AWS won't drain


I was having the following symptoms: If I hit the drain button, it would stay at 2 minutes and just click on and off. If I hit the rinse button, it would rinse all 9 minutes OK. It would always stick in the middle of a full cycle and just start clicking.
I just fixed it. I shut off the circuit breaker, opened the door up (all torx screws from inside of door) to get the the upper controls. One lead (of two) of a capacitor (square blue component) had actually worked itself out of the control board. I cleaned it up and resoldered it in. All better now - for now.

Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker


Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect.
