Are you sure the unit is off ?
If you have unplugged the unit and no breaker tripping occurs and tripps when machine is plugged in but switched off chances are you plug socket(on the wall) is the culpret here in which case I suggest you get a qualified electrician out to have a look.

The dishwasher wont turn on. I'm not sure if is fused or not. How can I fix it?


Many dishwashers, due to their power consumption, are on their own house circuit. It may have blown the house fuse or circuit breaker. Ours does it about once every 6 months or so. I just reset the circuit breaker. I'm sure an electrician would tell me to replace the dishwasher or have it serviced to determine why it periodically blows the circuit, so if it has blown the circuit breaker, you should determine why before running it again (unlike me!).

No power


well if your main power that supplies the dishwasher is good then you need to replace the main control unit of the dishwasher

Keeps blowing the fuse in the house


Try to turn off everything else that is on the same circuit then turn on the dishwasher. If the breaker still trips then the circuit breaker might be malfunctioning or the dishwasher might be defective (in which case the circuit breaker is doing exactly what it is designed to do.) I would bet that it's the dishwasher thats causing the problem. Check with the manufacturer to see if there are any recalls on that model.

Dishwasher wont turn on


The dishwasher is generally on a separate circuit so if that circuit breaker kicks, or that fuse blows you won't see anything else turned off. Go to you panel and check to see.. If it is a blown fuse, replace it with a new one of the same amperage. If it is a kicked circuit breaker turn the breaker all the way off and then back on.

Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.


These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch
rubber.
