Question about Smeg 18 in. DWI410 Built-in Dishwasher
MY BUILT-IN SMEG DWI 410 BUILT-IN DISHWASHER TRIPS THE RCD WHICH PROTECTS THE CIRCUIT THAT IT'S ON, LATE IN THE WASHING CYCLE. (THE RCD OPERATES AT 30 ma). THE MACHINE WORKS PERFECTLY FOR ABOUT AN HOUR THEN THERE IS A PHUT FROM THE MACHINE AND THE RCD TRIPS THE CIRCUIT THAT THE DISHWASHER (AND OTHER KITCHEN SOCKETS) ARE ON. THERE IS ALSO BRIEFLY A BRIEF AND FAINT SMELL OF BURNING FROM THE MACHINE. I'VE HAD THE MACHINE APART AND THERE'S NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF LEAKS OR BURNING. THE RCD RESETS WITHOUT A PROBLEM. AS THE MACHINE WORKS FINE IN THE RINSE ONLY PROGRAMME, I'M THINKING THAT ESCAPING HOT STEAM IN THE LATER STAGES OF THE WASHING PROGRAMMES MAY BE GETTING INTO THE ELECTRICS. THE MACHINE IS 3 YEARS OLD. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY OTHER THOUGHTS AS TO WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM?
take the kick panel off. On some smeg, there is a small suppressor capacitor on the lhs tucked in the wiring. this breaks down. snip it off - no need to replace
