Question about Neff 24 in. S5453X1 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Our NEFF built-in dishwasher is causing the house RCD to trip

The dishwasher is causing the RCD to trip - suspect there may be a leak or a short circuit causing the high voltage? It takes out the circuit in the kitchen that the dishwasher is on. Has anyone else had this problem, or know of a fix?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping fuse box

Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.

SOURCE: How do I find the product code for my Neff

Hello,

You will find the Enr. and Fd. numbers on the top inside edge of the stainless in the centre near the door switch. It is etched into the stainless and it can be difficult to see in certain lights or the angle you look at it but it is there.

Hope this helps.

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

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

I have a Bosch Classixx slimline dishwasher. I completes most of the cylcle but trips out the electricsnear the end of the cycle - probably the drying cycle - any ideas Garry


Hello Garry,

I suspect the element in the water heater is either burning out or shorting to earth. If it's burning out, the increased resistance will cause an overload and trip the breaker or blow the fuse for that circuit. If it's shorting to earth, it may trip both the breaker and the RCD in your fuse box / consumer unit.

Next time it happens, check whether the RCD switch (assuming you have one) is in the 'OFF' position. Most breaker boxes will be fitted with an RCD which protects many, or all, of the individual circuits. It's easily identified by the presence of a 'TEST' button.

That's only going to be a clue to the likely cause of the fault though. You really need to do some testing of the element with an ammeter and/or multi-meter, if you have one. I can provide instructions for testing if you have the equipment and inclination.

Unfortunately, if it is the water heater, the cost of a replacement is about £100 for the part alone, for the SGS43C12. Water heaters for most other Bosch models are roughly the same price and some of the older models can be £130+. If you need to get someone in to fit it, you could be looking at a total bill of between £150-200. Considering the age of the SGS43C12 / Classixx, it may be time to consider replacing the dishwasher.

Obviously, I'm assuming it's the water heater as this is the most likely cause, but there are other possible faults. If you need any instructions on testing, etc, please confirm the correct model number as the SGS43C12 isn't a slimline model.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Why does my dishwasher trip our electric when we switch it on ?


There can be a possible short or an electrical leak- if ELCB is used- that seems to trip off the circuit. this can be a short in the main control panel which is the power section.
the ideal way to go about is to ISOLATE the circuit , so remove the control boarrd leads and check, then remove the outputs from the control board, check for leak from the board which will confirm the case.
Take precaution when checking with live circuit.

My Whirlpool ADG 7550 Dishwasher trips out all my electrical sockets as soon as its plugged in. It failed whilst in mid wash. Any advice?


It is possible there is a short in the electric system in the dishwasher. There are two possibilities

1. there is a leak to the earth due to some water leakage and this causes the earth relay to trip.
2. the dishwasher motor coil or capacitor is shorted and drops the circuit breaker.


If it is related to 1, then best to take the dishwasher out from the cabinet and check with multimeter if power plug Live is showing short with Earth connection. You will have to find source of the water leak onto the power board.

If it is related to 2, then isolate the motor capacitor and try again. But 2 is unlikely if the breaker trips even if the dishwasher is not turned on.


Please post a comment if you find anything.

As soon as we close down the lid the circuit breaker trips off ! our model is the 505048 passthrough dishwasher ck 0777


There is a short circuit in the electric system in the dishwasher. As soon as you shut the hood, the circuit is completed and causes the breaker to trip.

You will need a technician to find the leaky part. Most likely the water is leaking into the motor / pump area causing a short circuit.

Best to disconnect from the mains and check for leaky gaskets. I believe this uses a 3 phase 400V which can be converted to single phase. So also make sure there is no unbalance in the mains power phases if you are using 3 phase supply.
