I have a diplomat dishwasher it was working then in mid cycle it blew the house fuse I replaced the fuse in the plug and switched the house fuse back on when turning on the dishwasher it blew again, I was told there is a heater reset button on the bottom under the thermostat so i have taken it apart and the button does not seem to be a reset is it likely to be the thermostat?

Assuming the water tap is open and the water pressure is correct, it is likely the inlet water valve in the dishwasher is faulty. If you hear a click at the time the cycle starts but still there is no water then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. Also check the inlet hose for any kinks or blockage of the filter attached to the tap inlet.
The inlet valve looks like this item
This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.
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.
Please can you give me the dimentions of this Dishwasher Diplomat Model ADP 8132, as I have got to get a replacement and have been told that the Hotpoint FDL570X is the replacement offered,Many Thanks,
