  • Philco Dwn 17 dishwasher is tripping our electricity circuit breaker

    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

      Thank you for the reply,

      Is this something that would be repairable (the heater) or would it require a new
      heater? Or even new dishwasher?

        new heater

        its got an earth fault so its tripping

        I assume there is not a leak causing the machine to trip

          Interesting you mention about a leak, we did see a small leak (small amount of water from the bottom of the unit)
          some weeks back. Could this be causing it to trip? How would I resolve this if so? Take the back off and identify where
          the leak is and fix it guess?

            correct
            take sides off or any other access point
            look for damp

            run machine and look for leak
            had a zanussi the other week where a small leak dripped on the heater and tripped out

              Hi again,

              Thanks for all the advice. So, it seems that the problem is the heating element as you suggested.
              So, Ive been trying to find a replacement part for it. The one in my dishwasher is 230v 2000W and it
              has some part numbers on it that say: 1/81/511020/13/02 and also 851000 (don't know which is the actual
              part number). Anyway, I cannot find this part anywhere online.
              However, I have found a heating element for an Indesit diswasher (Philco were taken over by Indesit) and it
              looks exactly the same and has the same power rating 2000W, the part number for it is:
              C00144898
              Do you think that this would work in my dishwasher?

              Thanks again,

              Mark

                  Okay so on the website desciption (selling the heating element), it tells me:

                  Genuine Indesit Dishwasher Heating Element 2000W.
                  • Original Part Number: C00144898
                  • Alternative Part Number(s): C00046319, C00061931, C00061931, C00066598, C00144898.

                    Also

                  Does that give you the information required?

                    I wanted the info off the machine

                    probably is model DWN 17 X with a commercial code of F006990 ( this number is part of the other numbers on the label and normally appears starting 3 or 4 numbers in )

                    if the above is true element is listed as part no C00041093

                    which is described as "IMPROVED HEATING ELEMENT 2100W/230V KIT"

                      Hi again,

                      Okay so I looked in the machine and found the label.

                      So the numbers I see are:

                      Dwn 17X 1612430012

                      and underneath there is an diagram of something that looks a bit like an element and it says 2100W.

                      The element number you mentioned looks quite different in shape to the one in my dishwasher when I checked it out online.

                      Please let me know your thoughts,

                      Thank you,

                      Mark

                        this site stocks the original element you listed as a possible
                        https://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/c000...heater-element

                        it gives sizes in the info so you could measure yours element to see if the sizes match, you could also message the site to see if their info suggests it may fit

                        I looked up the manufacturers info, they may well have produced a different shape element to improve things. Its described as a kit so I expect extra parts to enable it to fit properly
