Question about Miele Dishwashers
I have an old Miele dishwasher that has worked perfectly for years. However for no apparent reason it now keeps tripping the safety switch even when it's not switched on (just plugging it in is enough to trip the switch). The wiring in the house was redone professionally 2 years ago with a plug specific to the dishwashers power requirements put in place so I'm wondering is there some safety mechanism in the dishwasher that's causing the problem or is it simply just time to buy a new one.

It depends on what kind of test he was doing. He was probably checking the amp draw which checks how much power the whole machine was pulling. This would be the way to check the problem you have as long as he checked it with everything running, motor, heater,..etc. If you find the amp draw to be too high, then you go to individual components.

i had this probem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try - works for my machine, good luck.
