Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5966 Free-standing Dishwasher
Our dishwasher is about 10 years old (Whirlpool adp731)but last year and the year before the guy came out, and said the trip switch has switched over. Fixed it in a matter of minutes charged 50 as it was under warranty and left. In fairness to him he said next time it happens just put your hand in and fix it. Where is my question? I never looked and I think it has happened again. I would think at this time that it is better to buy a new one for 300 at this rate.

It sounds like it, yes. My guess would bedthe heating element. Does it have a "cold was" program you could try? If it still trips the fues it may be the motorr that is broken.

its either the element or the motor, check element for visible signs of damage then if ok remove wires from it and ( making sure to insulate them ) and run the machine if it works then the element needs replacing. and if it doesnt then its the motor.

It could be faulty wireing in the dishwasher connection or you could have a leak in the washer causing the wires to get wet. I would have an electrician have a look at it.

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

SOURCE: 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:
