Question about Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher
Hi my dishwasher keeps throwing my trip switch my friend gave me advise and told me i maybe had to many appliencies on at the same time so i switched all off and tried just the dishwasher its still tripping the switch . please help as i have 4 young children and cant afford the repair bills
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.
