Question about Dishwashers
You may have a poor connection where the dishwasher is hardwired. To check this you will have to flip your breaker to kill the power to the dishwasher. Remove the bottom panel probably 2 or 4 screws and usually depending on the model there will be a small box that holds the wiring. Remove the screw and open up the box. Remove the two wire nuts and check to see if they are blackened or loose. If so re-strip the wires so you get a good connection and then put on a new pair of wire nuts.
The other issue could possibly be a weak breaker. This would have to be addressed by an electrician. This would probably be the case if the breaker itself is actually tripping each time you turn the dishwasher on.
Anything further would probably be a failing relay if you have a control board on the unit.
Hope this helps _MJ_
