Hi there,

We have a Philco Dwn 17 Dishwasher, not completely sure of the age (we got it 2nd hand).
Has worked great for the past few months since we got it.

However, now whenever I try to use it, it gets part way into whatever cycle I choose
(say about 5 minutes in) and then the circuit breaker in our house gets tripped. Ive tried switching
off everything else in the house to isolate the dishwasher, but it still happens.
The only cycle that will run to completion without causing a problem is cycle 6 which is the cold
rinse and drain. So this suggests to me possibly an issue as the heating
element starts up to warm the water?

Any thoughts or feedback would be most appreciated, cannot afford to replace so
am hoping repair is possible.

Thank you,

Mark

Hi Mark,

We don't have any tech. data information on European appliances, try UK Whitegoods.
