Check the wiring between the door where it goes underneath. Sometimes it will wear and short out. Another possible solution If you can see the dry element feel it for holes or missing pieces. If it burns out it will usually short out just like the oven element on an electric stove.

Electric Water Heater blows fuse, but only every few years

Your residential water heater is not 9000 watts. Or it would blow the fuse every day and melt the wire. Instead, you have dual-element non-simultaneous 4500 watt water heater.
Look at label for 'total connected watts'
25 amp breaker or fuse and 10 gauge wire is minimum acceptable for 4500 watt water heater.
Troubleshoot blowing breaker or fuse:
Why does it blow fuse once each year?? I don't know.
Fuses and breakers trip when overheating occurs on wire.
Each fuse or breaker is rated for heat, and over time, it will get hot and then cool and then get hot again ... this action weakens fuse or breaker.
To solve problem: install 3500 watt elements (and clean sediment out of tank). Wire will run cooler, and fuse will last longer. Whole fuse box will demand less power, and run cooler, and will last longer as a result. So there is less stress on electric service panel.
3500 watt element will heat water to same temperature, but takes longer. For example: 4500 watt heats 21 gallons per hour, while 3500 watt heats 17 gallons per hour.

Hi I have an ADG 7540 dishwasher Yesterday, our kitchen sink was blocked, so the Mrs poured some sink unbloker into the sink and left it for 2 hours to soak through At somepoint - not sure if it was...

Hi Kris,

It certainly sounds like you have the diagnosis about right. Clearly there are still internal components that are wet and they are causing various short circuits that will cause trips and strange behaviour.One of a couple of things will have happened here:

Either the machine will dry out and return to normal operation (you would be surprised at what a soaking electrical equipment can take and still work once dried out) or the soaking has blown a controller board and the machine will need diagnosis and repair.

My first step would be to pull the machine out and leave it in a warm and well ventilated place for about a week (A conservatory is a great place for drying if you have one). After a week, try the machine and you will quickly learn if it has dried out and survived or not. If it is still dead, then call for a repairer.

A couple of things to note here:
Firstly: Be patient and wait the whole week. Every time you turn the machine on and it fails because a component is still wet, you run the risk of killing a component that had managed to survive the initial problem.
Secondly: If the machine is worth the repair, it is probably best to call out someone qualified. This kind of problem is a DIY nightmare and you can find yourself buying components that dont fix the problem, or worse, that you blow up, because the problem was somewhere else and all you did was put a new component in place for the fault to destroy. Better to call out someone who knows what they are doing, has test equipment and who will blow up their own components that they paid ffor rather than yours!

Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.

These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch

Fisher & paykel trips the electric sockets

GE Triton XL Dishwasher

Make sure wash arms are going around. Set the arms to point right at you and mark with a marker (so you can tell if the arms moved, not just turned 180 degrees) and run the unit for a few seconds. If the spray arms don't move, look for obstucted holes in the spray arm(s). Toothpicks, plastic candy wrapers, seeds, etc. If all clear, so an "Ask Me" for other ideas.

It sounds like it, yes. My guess would bedthe heating element. Does it have a "cold was" program you could try? If it still trips the fues it may be the motorr that is broken.
