Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Got a Indesit Di620 Dishwasher that trips RCD after power up & immediateley as you shut door.Fault is definately related to pressure switch, disconnected pipe to switch and then able to start cycle, without tripping, small amount of water out of pipe,but cycle only lasts for a few minutes, then stops. ( blowing into pressure switch trips rcd )How can i test switch, or is it a water level problem ??Any help would be good, thanks S.C

SOURCE: My Indesit IDL500 dishwasher cycles through (about

had this problem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconnect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try

SOURCE: Tripping out RCD

It may be the element has a tiny hole in it somewhere, I had the same problem, and found a minute pin hole under some corrosion on the element. This was allowing the power in the element to circuit to the metal casing, and trip the RCD, but only just enough to trip it, not enough to show on my DMM. Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: idw604 error code e4

had same problem. Tilt dishwasher to the left and drain all the water (it will come out on the side). That's E4 solved. Now turn it on, E4 should not light up. If it does, turn it on and as soon as u do this, close the door. This won't activate the Trip Switch but will automatically turn the pump on. Good luck!

Dishwasher fault codes


the heating element is probably bad.
i have a idl 600 here in naples italy and it would fill up and go into alarm light 2 and 4 and pump out the water.
heating element cost 28 euro and i changed it out.
had to change the clamps as well.
if you ohm the element it should show about 100 ohms.
if it is open its bad.
the mother board does some checks and if anything fails it alarms out and drains the water after a few minuts

My dishwasher trips the electicity suply


The probably cause is a component in the dishwasher is leaking current to earth and tripping out an RCD. Common causes are the heater , pump and circulation pump. Also the wiring which goes into the door is prone to damage and rubbing on the metalwork of the door. You really need a multimeter to check components and isolate the offending component. It is possible to unplug individual parts , carefully insulate the wires , and see if it then trips.

Indesist dishwaher sdl 535


when i attend dishwashers that have lost power to some part or short out at any point, i always check for broken wires inside the door skin, the wire harness inside the door skin gets hot and cracks with use when opening the door all the time, alternatively there could be a short on any of the working parts, unplug each part one by one and switch back on to test, when you have unplugged the faulty part the switch will not trip, replace as needed work with safety keep fingers out and unplug from power supply when disconnecting parts for testing hope i have helped if so please rate me
