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?

Hotpoint dwf61p dishwasher trips house rcd immediately when the on switch is pressed

Do you have an control board or a timer? Control board is touch panel time is a knob the you turn to start dishwasher. Most likely what is going on in you have melted wired where they connect to dishwasher.
To check/ correct
Turn dhishwasher off at breaker. Unplug dishwasher also if you can. The bottom of your dishwasher on the outside in front at bottom. There is an access panel usually requires 1/4 inch nut driver or phillips screw.driver. Remove panel. To the right side you will notice a silver square plate that has wires running into it. Remove the 1 screw usually on left with 1/4 inch nut driver. Examine the wires. Any kind of melting or scorch marks. If scorch marks are present. If you have an outlet the the dishwasher plugs into than replace cord. If its hardwaired ( ran directly from dishwasher to circuit breaker. Cut wire back make sure you dont cut too much. Remove all scorch marked wires and take off a little bit more to be safe. Reconnect wires use wire caps and electrical tape. After you finish this if the problem still persist contact a certified electrician you change the breaker and test the wiring.

Time to call the business that sold the machine for warranty service or immediate replacement! The threat of losing a sale will usually get them off the dime in short order. Hope this gets the problem(s) resolved in a hurry. Good luck!

My dishwasher computer is not resetting. It apprears to be stuck in a cycle. is there a way to reset it?


The Cycle is due to a process some Cyclic ~ Redundancy,...loL...:) Confused Computer Processes. Try to Unplug it completely from the Power Source. Leave it a while, turn it on while unplugged for a bit of time, like 2 minutes, turn if off, plug it back in. And try running it again. :)

After a short power outage (resetting breaker) the protected outlets no longer provide power. Is there a way to fix or do I need a new UPS?

The unit may need to recycle itself. Remove the loads and turn the unit off. Plug it back in, wait a bit, then turn it on. Then try your loads on it again.

press numlock twice. There may be other hotkeys, but that's the one that I use. Occasionally mine gets confused (because of reboots and hibernation) and I need to unplug the usb cables from each PC and then plug them back in. Then it works again.

The top drawer of my dishwasher has just become extremely difficult to open or close, bottom drawer is fine. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

Sorry if this seems so simple, but try unplugging the dishwasher and plugging it back in. Ours had the same problem after our house cleaner ran it, it turned out that the cycle had been interrupted and the top-seal motor had not retracted the top-seal.
That worked for us, good luck w/yours.
