Indesit D41 dishwasher problem

I have just moved my indesit dishwasher into a new flat and now every time I turn it on, it trips the mains in the property. Strangely, this only happens when the door is closed. When the door is open, it will turn on OK and won't trip the mains. I changed the fuse as a matter of course although, as I suspected, this had no effect. I sense there is an earth fault somewhere but wondered if this is a common problem and if there is any other solution than paying a sparky to come out and fix it - or tell me I need a new one!

Water in the bottom was a problem with mine as well. Turn it on it's side a little so all the water runs out. Leave it for a couple of days and it will work again. PS...Turn off the mains while you do this.

    I had the same problem. I have just tipped it over and drained as much as possible. Hopefully it dries up and comes back alive without tripping the circuit breaker again. How do I make sure it doesn't happen again? Any thoughts?

If things trip as soon as you turn the machine on, rather than waiting until partway through the cycle, then I guess you probably don't have the usual earth fault, which is a degraded heater element. The fact that things only trip with the door shut isn't all that bizarre - there's an interlock to shut the machine off when you open the door (stops interfering toddlers getting a scalding shower) - sounds like your earth fault is downstream of this. Once you've eliminated the element, and with a history of a house move, then there's every liklihood that whatever's causing your problem is going to be visible to the naked eye. With the power and water off, have a good look around inside the back and underneath. I reckon there are three things you should be checking for: 1. Wires that have become dislodged during the move or had metalwork bent into them (concentrate on the underside of the machine, where a mover's trolley might have got in and done some harm 2. Major lumps of machinery having become dislodged by the dishwasher getting dropped. 3. Moisure (especially salt water from the ion exchange bed) which has got swilled around in places it shouldn't have by movers tipping the machine on its side. For 1 and 2, fix what you see, then see what happens. For 3, wash out any salt contamination, let all freshwater dry out thoroughly (so leave it for three times as long as you think it's going to take) then plug it in and see what happens. A.

Hi,
It sounds like either the heating element is faulty (needing replacement) or the main motor is worn-out and needs replacement.
The only way to tell is to see which part is working correctly.

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


Hello,

My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.

Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

Thanks.

Turn off the power


you have a short likely in the machine.

more importantly......
you have a defective electrical system in your house.
the branch circuit should trip before the main. the fact that the entire house shuts down means the main breaker is tripping, and not the branch circuit for the unit.

this is dangerous. you could have a fire very easily as the wires in the walls can become heated.

there is no good explanation why the main trips rather than a branch circuit. get a qualified electrician out to make your home safe.

the only other thing i can think of is that you have a very small service, and your total usage just happens to exceed the capacity of the main each time your cycle gets to between 1 hour and 1.5 hours. incredibly unlikely.

get this looked at before you have a tragedy.

really.

good luck
