Question about Dishwashers
Well, hard to say at this point. Your wiring sounds correct, but there may be some other stuff going on which you may have not anticipated. First off, what size breker is attached to the wires you connected to the machine. Most household machine require a 20 amp breaker. If you had fire, my first concern is the breaker in this circuit is either too large, or not functioning correctly.
Secondly, because the problem occured when the wash motor engaged suggests a problem with that circuit.
You don't say much about the machine itself, so I am wondering if there may have been some water in the motor or maybe some wire are shorted to ground on that circuit.
Look for burn marks around the motor and it's wiring and repair all you find.
Hope this helps,
