Rcd tripping My bdw5 dishwasher tripped my rcd. When I opened the door the water leak or water hose damaged light was illuminated on the control panel although my wife had prevoiusly opened the door. Now the dishwasher still trips my rcd but only when you close the door.Is the problem easily solved or should I call somebody out? Many thanks.

    I fixed it myself, I removed covers and eventually found a cable's insulation had melted onto the front door's insulation creating a short to the metal casing. Job done, wife is happy, I am going down the pub.

Model 5ksm150 When switching machine on it runs for a second then trips my RCD in my consumer unit. Had a look at bushes seem ok and no obvious burning or damaged wiring. Wonder what is causing the RCD...

You are correct, an RCD trips when the current in the live and neutral lines is different - the question shouldn't so much be why it tripped but where did the missing current go?

The assumption is the missing current leaked to ground (or to the appliance casing) through an insulation problem...

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?

not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

Problem(s?) Bosch WFO2864GB/01

check the 13a fuse in the plug if you have a heater fault it may well have taken the fuse out as well as the rdc the machine will also need checking to resolve the issue rcd's are very sensitive with most having a trip current of only 30Ma although the heater is first thing to check

Machine partially fills and then stops working.

THE RCD SWITCH is concealed on the inner side of the hindges of the door or on the top innerside of the door. it is a simple push switch which has a mechanism of push to on/off
this switch has got stuck in off position.
change this switch or spray a drop of rust removal oil. it will start functioning

My dishwasher trips the electicity suply

The probably cause is a component in the dishwasher is leaking current to earth and tripping out an RCD. Common causes are the heater , pump and circulation pump. Also the wiring which goes into the door is prone to damage and rubbing on the metalwork of the door. You really need a multimeter to check components and isolate the offending component. It is possible to unplug individual parts , carefully insulate the wires , and see if it then trips.
