Resolved Question:

I have a Baumatic BDW45.1 Dishwasher .It is approximately 3 years old and only lightly used .Recently whilst in use it tripped all power .I called out an electrician who confirmed it was the Dishwasher after approximately 45 minutes of elimination process.This weekend it
tripped all power just when the Dishwasher socket was switched on .The electrician assured me that the socket was not the cause but a fault on the Dishwasher itself. Any ideas ??

Thanks

Hi

 

Ok when you get a fault like this were the dishwasher is tripping the electrics out a lot of the time its down to a faulty heater element. As these fail and like to cause the electrics to trip out.

 

If you are looking at fixing yourself you need to pull the dishwasher out and remove the right hand side panel and the rear panel on the back towards the bottom.

From here you need to locate the heater and from there disconnect the wires on there and tape them up.

Then turn the dishwasher back on again and see if it stops tripping out. If it does then the heater is the fault and will need to be replaced.

 

If the heater is fine then the other thing that can cause the electrics to trip is the wash motor. So disconnect the motor and see if this stops the tripping.

 

So check the heater if you can as mostly on dishwashers its the heater which causes this kind of fault.

 

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

Dishwasher examined and appears the Rinse Aid dispenser has corroded and leaked over the wiring loom and some other parts.


 


I note from my credit card statement that the fee has been debited .
