Hmmm...I would check the electrical power connections at the bottom of the dishwasher for melting or burning....otherwise it sounds like there is a short in the wiring of the dishwasher somewhere and would hve to be traced out.

Most Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers have a thermal fuse, located inside the operator console. When tripped, the dishwasher will not run. A power outage can cause the thermal fuse to trip. It cannot be reset and has to be replaced, if bad. Please post back with your COMPLETE MODEL NUMBER (located around the door opening) so I can determine the configuration of your dishwasher and explain how to access any potential fuses. -->

My Whirlpool ADG 7550 Dishwasher trips out all my electrical sockets as soon as its plugged in. It failed whilst in mid wash. Any advice?


It is possible there is a short in the electric system in the dishwasher. There are two possibilities

1. there is a leak to the earth due to some water leakage and this causes the earth relay to trip.
2. the dishwasher motor coil or capacitor is shorted and drops the circuit breaker.


If it is related to 1, then best to take the dishwasher out from the cabinet and check with multimeter if power plug Live is showing short with Earth connection. You will have to find source of the water leak onto the power board.

If it is related to 2, then isolate the motor capacitor and try again. But 2 is unlikely if the breaker trips even if the dishwasher is not turned on.


Please post a comment if you find anything.

Is there a fuse box on the whirlpool partner ii.. my drain was clogged and now there is no power to the dishwasher


Hi, Try checking the circuit breaker to see if it tripped. If not, did you maybe unplug it from under the sink by accident? Check this and let me know. Good Luck, Shastalaker7

Ran dishwasher, we to work, came home, no power, water in bottom. Breaker is not tripped, power to rest of kitchen


Although breaker has not tripped it is still worth changing the fuse in the dishwasher plug.
Nothing to lose for a few pennies.

Whirlpool(model ADP5540) dishwasher keeps tripping the power when switched on.


There is a short in the machine somewhere. Take a flashlight and look around the wiring and see if you can spot a bare wire touching any of the other metal or the frame.
