Sounds like the motor or something overloads the circuit.
You could always call a repairman...but with the prices on these at Lowes or Home Depot, it might just as well to replace it.
I always take the price of an appliance and divide it by the years of service to see how much it costed me to use each year. I know, sounds crazy...but if ya spend $300 on a washer and only get 3 years out of it...then it costed you $100 a year...6 years you're down to $50 a year.
(These days, if you get 5 years out of an appliance...you're on borrowed time. They just don't make appliances like the "Admiral" that grandma had.)

You most likely have a fault with the Thermostat. That is common on Omega Technowash which is similar to a Smeg dishwasher. More often than not the Thermostat fails rather than the heat element. However, not to completely dismiss a failed heat element.
The thermostat is not very expensive. If you don't have the means to test the element or thermostat via a multimeter, you can order the thermostat to have a go at fixing it yourself.
Unplug the machine from its power point.
"Two screws in the front kick plate. Open these and lift off kick plate. When you open the dishwasher door you will see an L-shaped heat element which is on the bottom of the bowl on the left and back of machine. The Thermostat is the round metal head situated on the front left in between the element coils. When you look from underneath inside where you have removed the kick-plate you can see two wires going to your heat element and 4 wires going to the Thermostat (either 2 White and 2 purpule) or (2 red and 2 white).
The thermostat is pushed in from the bottom and sits in a groove of a rubber seal. You can pull it down and out from underneathe and twist and push up the replacement in its place. Make sure the sharp metal edge of thermostat is poped insided the groove, otherwise the machine will leak.
Try this first, I am fairly sure it is the thermostat. If you have a multimeter you can check continuity of the heat element.
