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.

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.
see this causes and fix it. God bless you 1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power
getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker
or a blown fuse. Check
the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects
at the dishwasher
(inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this
is the case, the wiring
must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch
Replace if defective.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem 5( test the main board can be faulty and replace.
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.
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
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.
when i attend dishwashers that have lost power to some part or short out at any point, i always check for broken wires inside the door skin, the wire harness inside the door skin gets hot and cracks with use when opening the door all the time, alternatively there could be a short on any of the working parts,
unplug each part one by one and switch back on to test, when you have unplugged the faulty part the switch will not trip, replace as needed
work with safety keep fingers out and unplug from power supply when disconnecting parts for testing
hope i have helped if so please rate me
