SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher classixx blows fuse when turned on

No don't hose it out. That will only make things worse. There are a good number of reasons why it may be blowing the breaker. You will need to meter out the different parts to check for a short. My guess from you description is that the softner unit has broken / leaked and gone into the main pump. You will need to replace both if thats the case.

Hi david parker...
Check to make sure your motor is not binding up and also check your swing arms inside of the dish washer to make sure they are not bound up also.If not bound up then try to run the motor by itself to see if the motor is good...if the motor runs then replace the switch

Machine displaying general alarm the infuser slide was very tight freed up and reassembled now turning the machine on results in an arc at the motor brushes which blows the RCD breaker.


Hi Chris
Good Job freeing it all up etc. Your 90% there
Can you remove brushes & clean and stretch a millimetre more out of brush leads to stop arcing. Or perhaps the load is to great.
I did notice you said RCD.
RCD's usually only trip when an in-balance occurs between the hot phase wire & neutral wires.
Eg... what goes in via phase wire must come out on neutral wire. Even a small millivolt trickle to ground will trip an RCD. (20-30ma)
The Residual Current Device is for electric shock Safety.
It is not the main fuse or circuit breaker.
RCD's can be a real pain when there is a slight moisture leak.
For Example.
My fridge in my Winnebago would trip the RCD after it hadn't been used for awhile. The insulation around the 10A heating element was damp & tripping the RCD continually.
So how do I bypass the RCD to heat the element up and get rid of moisture. My method was to use a stand alone generator with no RCD to power the RV.
Worked great. Once the element surroundings were dry it ran fine on the home 240vAC.
So... If you really are tripping the RCD then the problem is AC "LEAKING" to Earth. Usually Moisture.....Try a hair dryer
If it is really blowing a Fuse or Circuit Breaker then the problem is too much current being drawn in circuit.
Hope this Helps

Mains RCD blows after a few minutes of operation


You have a short inside the control unit. When it opens the power protection disengages the unit. It is a warning to get it replaced or face the possibility of a house fire.

Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.

I have a Bosch Classixx slimline dishwasher. I completes most of the cylcle but trips out the electricsnear the end of the cycle - probably the drying cycle - any ideas Garry


Hello Garry,

I suspect the element in the water heater is either burning out or shorting to earth. If it's burning out, the increased resistance will cause an overload and trip the breaker or blow the fuse for that circuit. If it's shorting to earth, it may trip both the breaker and the RCD in your fuse box / consumer unit.

Next time it happens, check whether the RCD switch (assuming you have one) is in the 'OFF' position. Most breaker boxes will be fitted with an RCD which protects many, or all, of the individual circuits. It's easily identified by the presence of a 'TEST' button.

That's only going to be a clue to the likely cause of the fault though. You really need to do some testing of the element with an ammeter and/or multi-meter, if you have one. I can provide instructions for testing if you have the equipment and inclination.

Unfortunately, if it is the water heater, the cost of a replacement is about £100 for the part alone, for the SGS43C12. Water heaters for most other Bosch models are roughly the same price and some of the older models can be £130+. If you need to get someone in to fit it, you could be looking at a total bill of between £150-200. Considering the age of the SGS43C12 / Classixx, it may be time to consider replacing the dishwasher.

Obviously, I'm assuming it's the water heater as this is the most likely cause, but there are other possible faults. If you need any instructions on testing, etc, please confirm the correct model number as the SGS43C12 isn't a slimline model.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I would get an electrician to check the machine as it appears to have an earth fault on the machine wiring , This type of fault will operate the RCD quicker than the fuse will operate. I am a qualified electrician by trade.

I am not familiar with Bosch but I do know that other brands use the defrost heater as a source for power to the compressor while running. If the heater is partially grounded it could cause this problem. If this is okay have your thought that maybe your RCD is going bad... just a thought
