Question about Dishwashers
If I understand your problem correctly, it appears that you have a ground fault ( or earth fault) that is causing your breaker to trip. I am assuming ( but don't know for sure ) that your dishwasher is hard wired into a junction box and that junction box is fed power from your circuit breaker panel. I am also assuming that the circuit breaker is either a Ground Fault Interupt ( GFI ) or standard type and that breaker is what you are saying is tripping with every wash cycle. There are some details that need to be filled in for me by you in order for me to fully understand your wiring scheme and suggest ways to resolve your problem. First off, can you provide details on how your dishwasher is wired ( as I suggested above or other) and secondly, what voltage are you running it at? If you are in the US then in all probability you are running your dishwasher at 120VAC @ 60 hz but if you aren't then please elaborate. Once I have that information, I may be able to assist diagnosing and resolving your problem.
