Rcd tripping My bdw5 dishwasher tripped my rcd. When I opened the door the water leak or water hose damaged light was illuminated on the control panel although my wife had prevoiusly opened the door. Now the dishwasher still trips my rcd but only when you close the door.Is the problem easily solved or should I call somebody out? Many thanks.

    I fixed it myself, I removed covers and eventually found a cable's insulation had melted onto the front door's insulation creating a short to the metal casing. Job done, wife is happy, I am going down the pub.

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?


not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

DISHWASHER DRAINS WHILE DOOR IS OPEN. HEAVY LIGHT IS ON BUT NO WATER


Apparently you have water down in the flood area of the dishwasher, where the leak detector is located. Pull the dishwasher out and remove the right-side panel. Pull the insulation up, and look inside with a bright flashlight. The leak detector is located on that side. Depending on the model, you may have to move the motor capacitor out of the way, or move the controller out of the way to be able to get to that area to dry up the water. But the question is, "Where did the water come from?" You may have a bad (leaky) main pump, a bad drain pump, or a crack or hole in one of the hoses (the drain hose is the most common).

Problem(s?) Bosch WFO2864GB/01


check the 13a fuse in the plug if you have a heater fault it may well have taken the fuse out as well as the rdc the machine will also need checking to resolve the issue rcd's are very sensitive with most having a trip current of only 30Ma although the heater is first thing to check

My dishwasher trips the electicity suply


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.

F2 FAULT AND ALL LIGHTS ARE FLASHING.


f2 means water in the flood pan remove dishwasher from under bench and tip back the water will run onto the floor.then test the dishwasher while it is still out you can remove the rear panel were the hoses go through and check the drain hose for leaks also check the white plastic ring under the metal filter for cracks,they look like a dark line.as far as the dispenser the most common cause is the main board,remove door skin and control panel and check the back of the board for damaged tracks,you will also have to replace the wax motor(red) on the drying fan(if fitted)check the solenoid on the dispenser for open circut.hope this helps.Ian.
