It could be a few different things. If the breaker is rated close to the amp draw of the unit (e.g. 10 amp breaker and the washer is pulling 9.5 A) , or if there are multiple devices that particular breaker services that is causing a higher amp draw.
Slim chance the motor in the washer could have a bad start capacitor, causing it to draw more amperage when the pump or motor comes on.
Please let me know if this helped.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker

Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect.

SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping fuse box

Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.

Door switch. If the washer thinks the door is open, it won't run.

Dishwasher trips out after running for a while


When you say "trips out" do you mean the circuit breaker trips? If so the breaker in the electrical box may be bad. Also do you have anything on that circuit pulling high amps when the dishwasher is running? Also when does it "trip out" during a pump cycle or when the heating element cycle starts?
If the pump does not work at all then the pump may have went out. If it happens when the heating element cycle starts then it may be the circuit is overloading or the breaker is bad.

Viking dishwasher VUD040 keeps tripping the circuit breaker during drying cycle


Are you sure the breaker is big enough to carry the Amps needed to start the drying cycle. You know that due to inductance it takes almost twice as many amps to start a motor as it does to run it.Find out how many Watts it uses and divide it by 120VAC and it will give the maximum amps it will draw. See if the breaker is high enough amp for it. A 25 Amp breaker should be efficient. I hope this helps you and if I can help you in anyway in the future let me know.

My dishwasher was in the middle of a cycle and it just quit. The buttons dont light up. It doesn't turn on at all. What could be wrong with it?


Sonya, have you checked the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel to see it has been tripped? Also, is the dishwasher door tightly shut? If the breaker is tripped, reset it to see if the dishwasher trips it again. If it does, either breaker is faulty or the dishwasher has a short circuit in the electrical circuitry. You'll need an authorized service person for that.

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part...


Hi

The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and Revert for further assistance.

Dishwasher is "tripping" the breaker & not draining.


I had the same problem with a Hobart AM8 passthru dishwasher. The electrician determined that some of the wires had become exposed and were wet, thus shorting things out and tripping the breaker.

Tripping power


Don't know what the 2-cycle is... but here are a couple things to consider:

Dishwashers by code must be connected to a GFCI circuit since they handle water. If there is a faulty ground anywhere on the device the GFCI will trip, hence saving you from being electrocuted. If the circuit breaker is under rated and the 2-cycle is drawing more current than the rating, it will blow. The dishwasher should be on its own circuit also. If more than one appliance is on the same circuit, it may be too much for that circuit. My guess is that the 2-cycle is trying to heat the water inside the washer and drawing alot of power. Make sure the rating of the circuit breaker matches the manufacturers recommendation.
