Either the dishwasher has a short in it, or the electrical outlet you are plugging into is incorrectly wired. To check the outlet, use a $4 electrical socket tester you can get at any hardware store. That will tell you if the wiring is correct.

If the wiring is correct, then dishwasher probably has a major electrical short and will require a service person to trace the problem. May be more expensive than the dishwasher is worth, but only you know that part of it.

Why is my washing machine tripping my main fuse box even when I change the plug socket


by "tripping main fuse" do you mean the high amp (eg 60 amp or 100 amp) fuse that feeds the whole fuse box? if that is the case, there is too much stuff on in your house that's drawing power. The fuse box is too small to power all the stuff you have plugged in and running. Suggest turning off other high draw appliances in the house, like large TVs or microwaves or air conditioners, when running the washing machine.

You may have either too much also connected to that circuit or the wiring may be involved along with a circuit breaker that needs replacement--you would have to have an electrician look to see if load on it is within limits for what is connected or swap the breaker out with a correct one to see if the issue is the breaker or not.

Tv when plugged in trips main fuse box


If there is a short circuit inside the TV, the fuse should normally blow first before tripping your breaker. The only exception is if you have a short in the ac cord or the line filter of the TV set. Have you tried the tv on another circuit to see if it trips that breaker? If not, it could be that your first circuit is close to an overload and the TV is simply pushing the circuit "over the edge".

My Panasonic NN-GD560M microwave when switched on cause the fuse at the circuit box to trip. It will reset and appear to be OK but as soon as I attempt to use the microwave it trips again


The rest in the fuse panel can wear out especially if its been kicked off several times or is quite old so I'd suggest checking it and maybe it's on a line with too many things attached to the circuit causing too much amp draw when microwave is being used.If you know the house amp input to the fuse box and add up the fuses or reset amperage you maybe able to up the amperage by 5amp tops but try a brand new same amperage reset first off.

As soon as you do a spin program at more than 800 it trips the switches in the main fuse box


Sounds like a motor prob to me, unplug motor and try on spin cycle without motor, if it does not trip, then the motor is faulty..
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a stoves dishwasher i do not know model or serial no only just its a stoves DW 60 it turn on but as soon as the door is closed to start the wash it blow the trip in the fuse box


Its one of two things. Either its your heating element or your motor. Look underneath and also inspect for water having possibly splashed around. Remove both element wires from terminals and place them safely as not to touch anything when testing. If macine now doesnt trip off, you have found the problem. If it does, remove the motor wires and retest. If still tripping, check where power enters the machine. There is a line filter. on occasion it blows and shorts to earth.(remember, when removing these wires, pull plug out of socket.
