SOURCE: my dishwasher when switched on keeps throwing the trip switch

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.

SOURCE: Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse

Hello,

My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.

Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

Thanks.

Hi, I am having an issue with my Electrolux dishwasher which is causing a fuse to trip on my consumer unit. Is this likely to be the heating element or could it be something else? Many thanks.


Hello Nigel, thank you for your question. Often when a unit has been installed for a while and recently it starts to trip the breaker, it is typically due to a possible shorting on the unit or an issue with the breaker. Since the dishwasher will not complete the cycle, an actual diagnosis from an experienced tech would determine the precise cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

My dishwasher keeps tripping the eletrics when I switch it on !!HELP


Something in the dishwasher shorted out. Likely there is a leak somewhere. This assumes this developed recently.

It is possible the relay that controls the heating element is fused closed keeping power to the element continualy.

If it was a new install, the dircuit branch may be inadequate.

also check for a burned heating element, once you locate the element in the lower dish washer look i over for damage , you could also remove the wires from the lower element and then try ad see if it works ifthe unit works
replace the element
you have a short somewhere just trying to eleminate some items

We replaced the heating element and control board


Hi Paul,

First off check to make sure you have incoming power, that the circuit breaker is not tripped or fuse blown, the outlet it is connected to has power, no switch that controls that is off.

If power is going to the dishwasher the most common reason for the unit to be dead like this would be the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is a device that clips on to the control board you just replaced. It senses the temperature of the board and trips if it gets too hot. My guess is that it either is not clipped on to the new board in the right spot or one of the wire connections to the board or this fuse is not tight and creating enough heat to trip it.

You will need to replace this fuse if it is bad, it will come with new wires for it. Be sure to install the new wires, the kit will have instructions.

No heat - element measures 31 ohms is that correct ?


31 ohms is probably a good value for an element rated at about 500W. Dishwasher washing cycles use the heating element to keep the water hot during a specific cycle but not necessarily all cycles. Probably you have to select the cycle that deposits the soap. There is also likely a temperature switch in series with the 120 volts that is applied to the element during the cycle. Other cycles may not use the heating element. Be careful about where you put your fingers.

Dishwasher keeps cutting out


Has the door got heavier recently?
Mine had a spring break which fell onto the electrics and shorted them. Unplug and empty it, then tip it up to see if you can see a loose spring. If it is then replace or re-fit the old spring, I have posted instructions and pictures here:

Candy cs455 m dishwasher tripping out power


if what you mean is that it trips the circut or fuse in your home then the circut that you have it pluged into is not sufficent to hold for the elctrical load that the dishwasher needs. you can do one of two things. change the circut that the dishwasher is on ( plug it into a circut that has nothing else on it or verfiy that the circut can handle a higher amperage .. if thats the case change the fuse / circut breaker to a higher amperage.

peace ... jk

My dishwasher when switched on keeps throwing the trip switch


Try plugging into another socket preferably one that uses a different circuit. It could be a fault in the socket.
