Very possible its your element.  has a fault down to earth.  more chance of that than your motor.   suggest you take off one both element wires and retry running washer.  no tripping means element problem.

Could be that the motor is locked up (mechanically binding and wont turn) causing it to draw a lot of current, i.e. more amps than your breaker is sized for. is there any burning electrical smell?

Whirlpool Dishwasher model# DU1100XTPT6 stopped working mid-cycle and now unresponsive no lights on touch-pad.

Is your dishwasher hard wired into the house power system ... or plugged into a wall outlet under the kitchen sink?
You mentioned you turned off the power ... how? via the circuit breaker or disconnecting it from the wall? If your unit is plugged into an outlet (and you depowered by cutting the breaker) ... I would check the cord and outlet .. it might be as simple as that.
If that is not the problem ... trying a reset.
Below is a generic one for Whirpools which may work on your model
To reset it, you will have to have the door open. It can not be latched. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal," "Heated Dry," "Normal" within three seconds of the first pressed button. Now close the door, this should reset your dishwasher.
Good luck on your troubleshooting!

Whirlpool 665-13442K901 dishwasher electrical plug in shorts out

You reversed the black and white wires on what? Don't ever do that. One is the line and one is common. They are polarized for a reason.
Immediately stop using that outlet before you burn your house down. Switch the breaker off to that power circuit, then have a qualified electrician check it out.

Hi, the Council shut the water off to our house then when the water was turned back on I put the Whirlpool dishwasher on and now every time I try to use the dishwasher it cuts the power to the house. Will...

Hello - Probably, but someone with basic electrical skills can check the wires in the power connection box under the unit. If these wires look good, the problem is best left to a pro. Some part of the circuit is grounding, causing breaker to trip. Finding out where is an on-site job. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. -Thanks- Ed

DU943PWKSO DISHWASHER STOPPED WORKING, ELECTRICAL CURRENT TO PANEL BUT DOES NOT START NOR DOES ANYTHING TURN ON. LAST YEAR HAD THE SAME PROBLEM TECH TOOK FRONT APPART AND THE DISHWASHER STARTED WORKING. I...

Check you electrical power box that feeds to the house. If this dishwasher is hooked up under a sink counter and there is a garbage disposal in the sink area the dishwasher should be hooked up to the same circuit that the dishwasher is hooked to. If the garbage disposal works then the circuit is good your problem is either in the connection from the plug to the dishwasher or in the timer section of the unit. Either way the unit wont operate. Check power into the unit then check power at the hookup from the dishwasher to the plug itself if all is good then timer has gone bad

Good luck hope this helped you some

Electricity in house cut off. Now, printer does

Make sure power adapter is plugged into a power outlet that you know works. Then try and power drain the printer by unplugging the power cable and letting it sit for a bit and pressing the power button a few times. Then plug the power back in and see if it power up. If not, then the power adapter itself or the internet power on the printer might be faulty.

Check to see if there are corroded connections to the electrical feed from breaker to the machine.  Could be anywhere along the way.
