Question about Dishwashers
Hi guys, My CDW354 has sprung a leak, the filter connected across Live & Neutral blew apart last year and tripped RCD, I replaced the part and it worked fine until now, it starts ok, empties excess water before launching into cycle. As soon as it opens valve to allow water in the RCD trips, pulling it out from wall reveals a puddle so I guess theres a leak somewhere, Ive checked all visible pipes for leaks, even removed some a cleaned them to no avail.
Would it be safe to start the machine while its upside down so I can try to find the leak?
Ive taken some photos of the underside should anybody need to view it.

EI is an error to do with your drain. Check your drain hook up. You should have a loop out side the unit, it should be a minimum 40in in height, or put in a air break. What I believe is happening is your unit is siphoning out. Fix this and you will be able to stop washing the dishes by hand.

take the kick panel off. On some smeg, there is a small suppressor capacitor on the lhs tucked in the wiring. this breaks down. snip it off - no need to replace

SOURCE: Overheating Dyson DC07
Many devices including this one have what's known as a thermal cut out.
It is there for obvious safety reasons and prevents the temperature in the locality of the cut out from exceeding a pre-defined value.
Some of them require you to press a reset button in order to switch the power back on and other types simply reconnect the electricity supply when the temperature returns to normal (safe) operating limits.
The Dyson DC07 has a thermal cut out located close to the motor and it is of the "self resetting" type.
If your vacuum cleaner switches off after a few minutes the most probable cause (there can be others) is the thermal cut out has operated.
The first and most important thing to do is to establish why it has operated.... If the airflow around the motor has become restricted then it will not be being sufficiently cooled and so it will have cut out correctly. However, thermal cut outs are often quite crude internally and it is not uncommon for them to start cutting out at too low a temperature. So...
Here's what to do...
(some tools may be required to complete the following so read the entire procedure before starting. Please note this is not an absolute guide if you need really foolproof step by step instructions... buy a manual! But this should help)
There are now only two areas left that I know of which may cause further blockages. One is the "whole of life filter" located under the dust bin and the other one is inside each of those seven little cones (cyclonic chambers) at the top of the dust bin (root 8 cyclone is usually written on one of them). The following will require some tools and some common sense...
**** WARNING**** The next section requires someone who is technically minded, has fiddly fingers patience and a basic understanding of typical plastic goods assembly techniques. As I am not including photo's the descriptions given can only be considered as pointers to how to do it (I'm not writing a Haynes manual here! So if you are a cak handed clot with little or no patience and a tendency to resort to ever bigger hammers - take the vacuum cleaner to an independent repair shop - explain the symptoms, tell them what you have done so far and leave it to them!!
NB. NEVER remove or bypass the cut out. this really could be very dangerous!
I hope this is of some help... Regards to all.
