Dishwasher is tripping off our safety switch

My dishwasher is tripping the power switch and the technician only tested the power cord and said that it is fine . it has previously leaked some water during the cycle. Don't you test the power to all parts of the machine , such as the pump , programme controls etc.

Re: dishwasher is tripping off our safety switch

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.

We sold our bosch dishwasher, working perfectly. New owners transported it on its back. Now it won't start, or even show that it is getting power, though the outlet works. What has happened?

Hello KT;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Transporting the dishwasher on its back should not have been a problem. It is only with refrigerators and freezers that need to be transported up right, to prevent compressor oil getting into the refrigerant sealed system.

You may have a power cord problem. You have a 3 or 4 wire power cord. If you have a 3 wire power cord you need a 15 amp circuit breaker. If you have a 4 wired power cord you need a 30 amp circuit breaker.

The wall socket that you are plugged into my not have a ground.

You need to check the wall socket and the wire connects at the dishwasher. Send me a model number so I can see what you have. If you have a 4 wire connection you can chance the cord to a 3 wire. On a three wire you have a neutral and two hot with a small green ground wire. On a 4 wire you have a neutral two hot wires and a neutral in the center with a ground wire.

I would put my money on the wall socket not having a ground.

Send me a model number and I will help you.

My candy CDI45 is not working, it just keeps beeping and saying E2. Any tips on getting it working again would make me a happy lady again.


E2 is called water safety level error. Unfortunately the problem is often caused by either a defective pressure switch or by a defective control board. The problem is quite common in SMEG built dishwashers like your Candy.

All you can do is disconnecting power for a couple of minutes, by either tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord. That will reset control module. While power is off remove water (if any) from the bottom of the appliance.

If that does not do the job the parts must be tested and the appliance must be repaired replacing defective part.

My maytag dishwasher apparently blow a fuse in Fuse Box. I then throw the switch it worked ok, next day or two my wife try to start the dishwasher it would not turn on. I bought new fuse to put in...


It seems you may have an Electrical Insulation Break Down fault with your machine.
My suggestion would be to get a Registered Appliance Technician to test the internal circuit of the machine before attempting to switch on the appliance or rectify any fuses.
The appliance needs to be issued with a (PAT) test first to determine if the appliance is safe to touch when applying power to the machine so you dont electrocute your self.
Once the (PAT) test has been applyed then the technician can visually inspect the high voltage internal parts that could be the result of the insulation break down.
I strongly suggest if any kitchen appliance trips the main fuse for any reason I would recommend not trying to change any fuses as this second atempt to reboot the machine may have blown the machines 'Power Control Module'!

When switched on the machine trips the power. Changed fuse in plug and tried different socket but still same problem? took bot of machine no visable burn or soot marks? any ideas

Is it tripping the breaker in the breaker box? If so you have a short to ground. Could be A bad spot on the dishwasher cord. Turn power off and pull dishwasher out and check the power cord all the way back to the dishwasher terminals

My dishwasher keeps telling me F51 cannot find in the book what that means can you tell me please have cleaned all filters

On Miele F51 is pressure switch error.

The pressure switch is located in the drain system. Its function is determining if there is water inside the tub.

Trip the circuit breaker or disconnect the power cord for a couple of minutes. Inspect the drain system for blockage. The pressure switch can be tested by a technician bypassing it.

To get parts or repair service, call the number listed on the user manual.

The water doesn't stay at the bottom of Dishwasher & The detergent doesn'e get totaly emptied out from detergent Tray. It looks like the the residue remain in the Dishwasher & On Dishes too. Please, help...

hi there,
no indication that machine is not working,is there any power supply,check the power source,circuit breaker switch on.

Step 1: Check to make sure it's receiving power. If the unit plugs into a wall outlet, check the cord, the plug, and the outlet to make sure they're functioning properly. Also check the switch that controls the outlet to make sure it's turned on. Most built-in dishwashers are wired directly into a circuit. Check the main entrance panel for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker, and restore the circuit. If your home is an older one, the dishwasher may be wired to a separate entrance panel; look for a blown fuse or breaker at this panel, and restore the circuit.

Step 2: If the circuit is receiving power, and the wall outlet is controlled by a switch, the switch may be faulty. Test the switch with a voltage tester. Take off the switch cover plate and place one probe of the tester on one terminal and the other probe on the other terminal. If the tester bulb lights, the switch is functioning. If it doesn't light, the switch is faulty. Replace the switch with a new one of the same type.
this should be done by appliance technician,but if you have knowledge on this check it out.regads have a nice day,dont forget to rate me thank's
