My first thought is the motor start capacitor. This 'kicks' the motor up to speed. If it shorts, the unit will blow the breaker.

Make sure that the drum turns easily by pulling on the belt. If not, find out why...that's the problem.

Make sure the unit is unplugged before starting any work!

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker

rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

Viking DFB450 Tripping breaker in pots and Pans,normal, econo,cycle after prewash drains and fill. Heater or pump/motor bad? Does the pump have 2 speeds?


You may have a bad breaker. Have you tried replacing the breaker? I would not think you heating element was bad unless it didn't heat up. If the pump works at all then the pump should be ok. If it does not work and you have power going to the pump motor then it may be causing a phase to ground resulting in the tripped breaker.

Hi, I am having an issue with my Electrolux dishwasher which is causing a fuse to trip on my consumer unit. Is this likely to be the heating element or could it be something else? Many thanks.

Hello Nigel, thank you for your question. Often when a unit has been installed for a while and recently it starts to trip the breaker, it is typically due to a possible shorting on the unit or an issue with the breaker. Since the dishwasher will not complete the cycle, an actual diagnosis from an experienced tech would determine the precise cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Kenmore dishwasher wont turn on seems to have no power.

Check the breaker in your breaker box, it may have tripped. Reset it and run the dishwasher. If it trips again, have the dishwasher looked at by a professional service person.

I have a GE Dishwasher Model: PDW7800G00BB and when I close the door it trips the breaker on the Breaker Panel. What would cause this?

Check the breaker carefully, it may have a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) built in. If it doesn't say anything about this on the breaker, look for a small 'test' button which is used to test the breaker's reaction to a fault condition. If it is GFI equipped, water has gotten into areas where it did not belong and is causing ground currents to flow activating the GFI.
If it is not so equipped, then the motor has probably failed drawing excessive current causing the breaker to trip.

It may be that your water pump is leaking on to the motor...

Keeps blowing the fuse in the house

Try to turn off everything else that is on the same circuit then turn on the dishwasher. If the breaker still trips then the circuit breaker might be malfunctioning or the dishwasher might be defective (in which case the circuit breaker is doing exactly what it is designed to do.) I would bet that it's the dishwasher thats causing the problem. Check with the manufacturer to see if there are any recalls on that model.

No power maytag quiet series mdb7600awq


To my knowledge, there are no fuses in a Maytag MDB7600AWQ. Should you be interested, you can reference the electrical diagram here. Exploded diagrams and parts placement are here. Based on these probable causes of no power would be:
  • no supply from the outlet, circuit breakers have tripped;
  • any of the two (2) door switch is faulty/open;
  • defective controller board;
  • defective AC cord.
May I ask, have you tried resetting the circuit breakers?

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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. back.
