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?

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.

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

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

Dishwasher does not turn on. it is plugged in but

These are just some possible solutions that are worded for general assistance, I'm sure you have checked many of these things but others may not have;

The circuit breaker in the electrical panel may need to be reset. Hopefully it is labeled and will be easy to find without cycling power to everything else in the house.

The dishwasher may be on a GFI (ground fault interruption) circuit. The outlet may have a reset button on it that needs to be pushed or the circuit breaker in the electrical panel may have a built in GFI that needs to be reset.

Many dishwashers are installed with a light switch in the vicinity of the unit that is used as a disconnect. The light switch will cut power to the dishwasher if turner off. The switch is sometimes above the counter and sometimes below the sink.

There is also the possibility of a faulty On/Off button or dishwasher circuit board.

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.
