Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.

I ahve a Maytage MDB7130AWB dishewasher that sometimes blows the circit breaker. It is 7 years old and has been doing this for a few monthes. Sometimes it runs a full wash cycle fine, the next time tou have to reset the circit breaker 4 or 5 times to fet a full wash cycle. I have looked for pinched or cut wiring but have found nothing wrong. Any help or ideas would be great. An electrical diagram may help too.

    I've had the door panel off, a little water at the botton, but on the opposite side from the wires. All of the wires and connections look good everywhere I can see. I have replaced my breaker , outlet, and the wire between the two. So far it has not blown since, but have only run the machine twice.

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.

    It sounds like you may have fixwed the problem. It is good to have the dishwasher on it's own line. I hope you used 12/2 wire instead of 14/2.

    I know it sounds far fetched but there should be no water in door panel. If it blows again you might have to revisit the panel.

As soon as i try to cook anything it blows the breaker, its only 2 years old doesn't start cooking at all just as soon as you hit start the breaker blows my model is a nn-sd297 of course it's 2...


The service manual is here.

You can order parts from Encompass here.

It may be a bad monitor interlock / short switch, or possibly a shorted capacitor or other problem in the inverter.

But I'm surprised the 20A fuse is not blowing before the breaker is!

I hope it's on at least a 30A breaker...

Let me know if I can help further.

Power Failure without tripping breaker


Sounds like an overheat code tripped due to obstruction in the exhaust. There is also a vent tube on the bottom of the dryer that could be loose.

Blew a circit breaker this morning dishwasher wont start all power in kitchen is working this is a 1 1/2 year old dish washer


I am sure that you know that the dishwasher is on its own circuit... and that, in an older home that has been upgraded, the dishwasher may be on a GFI circuit.... If I am correct, you have an open GFI circuit somewhere in the kitchen or in a first floor bathroom.... that is feeding the dishwasher...

If all breakers are 'on" and no failed GFI is found, the the bad news is that the program chip in the dishwasher has been fried...
If that is the case, you may be better off replacing the dishwasher than in replacing the chip in the old one.

Dead micro


It could be a bad in-line circit breaker fuse. Unplug the microwave and take the outside cover off. Look for the in-line circuit breaker fuse. Use a plastic fuse puller (not your hands or a metal tool as there is still voltage stored in the microwave even when it is unplugged). Look at the fuse and see if it is blown. (The metal wire running length of tube will be broken. If you have one, test with an Ohmmeter.
