Question about KitchenAid Dryers

Open Question

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher that i could smell something burning during a wash. There were no lights, noise or action so i opened it up and noticed the base still full of water.

I determined the breaker was tripped and reset it, but i still have no lights, action or noise even i reset the breaker. I intend to clean out the sump next and check the fuse. Any other suggestions?

SOURCE: Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker

Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect.

SOURCE: washer just stopped

I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .

SOURCE: dishwasher is "tripping" the breaker & not draining.

I had the same problem with a Hobart AM8 passthru dishwasher. The electrician determined that some of the wires had become exposed and were wet, thus shorting things out and tripping the breaker.

SOURCE: kitchenaid dishwashes makes wining noise during wash

It sounds as if there is something in the bottom part of the dishwasher arm (it sprays the water around the bottom of the dishwasher). I would suggest that you take out the baskets and then remove and clean all of the parts that water comes out of as well as the bottom drain. If this works or does not, I would also suggest that you run an empty load using 1/4 cup vinegar. Hope this helps!

All the parts are working 100%,but jacuzzi trips the earth leakage after 2 hours


If your GFCI is tripping, it could be due to a bad heater element, pump, blower or ozonator. To determine which component is causing the problem, unplug the components one at a time and turn the breaker on. If the breaker does not trip after unplugging the pump, ozonator or blow, you've found the problem and you can now replace that component. If you've unplugged all three components and the breaker still trips, it's likely the heater element. Hiring a technician or replacing the heater is the next best course of action.

I had a breaker WLL3F340 (4000 AMPS ) and i need to reset ( back on) please i need you help , thanks.


A 4,000 amp breaker that has tripped indicates a a load greater than 3200 amps has been connected continuously for an extended period of time. A 4,000 amp circuit breaker is rated to carry 80% of the load - or 3200 amps continuously. Up to 4000 amps may be carried for a short period of time. A 4,000 amp breaker that has tripped can be a warning sign of a major problem.

First, 4,000 amps is a substantial amount of current. The reason for the breaker tripping should be determined and cleared by qualified persons before attempting to reset. Many circuit breakers this size have internal motors to charge a spring mechanism to close the breaker. Unlike the much smaller 15 to 50 amp breakers in your electrical panel in your home, these circuit breakers are also not designed for repeated tripping and resetting.

Second, no one is going to tell you how to do this either on the web or even over the phone. It is simply too dangerous to simply go for a reset without checking and clearing the cause of the fault.

Third, you should contact an electrician that has experience with large, commercial or industrial electrical service equipment. Not every electrician knows how or has worked with equipment this large, so be sure to ask first.

I hope this helps & good luck to you.

Disconnect the black power wire where it is connected to the furnace with breaker off. Put a wire nut on it and then turn the breaker on. If it continues to trip, the problem is not the furnace and you will have to trace the power wire back to the breaker box to find problem. Next, disconnect the black wire from the breaker (with breaker off) and then snap breaker on. If it trips, bad breaker. If the furnace was disconnected and breaker did not trip, you have a short either on the P C Board or the transformer.

You have a short in your electrical system somewhere that is causing your circuit breaker to trip. Harley uses automatic reset circuit breakers rather than fuses. If you get a short in your system somewhere, the current though the circuit breaker will cause it to trip. After a minute or so, the circuit breaker's bi-metal strip inside will cool and the circuit breaker will reset. If the short circuit still exist, the breaker will again trip.

To help find the source of the problem, you must determine which circuit breaker is tripping. In this case it sounds like the "lights" circuit breaker. Since your turn signals are on that circuit and they are not working, I'd start there to look for the reason.

When you turned off the key and it made the clicking noise again, this was probably the circuit breaker resetting itself after you removed the voltage and current flow through it by turning the switch off.

Good Luck
Steve

Breaker tripped, wouldn't reset. After about 20 minutes it reset.


YES YOU ARE IN DANGER. DO NOT turn this breaker on again. Please get a registered electrician. There is a risk of fire or even explosion. BE CAREFUL. Have you got a smoke alarm?

20amp breaker tripped unexpectly tonight. tried resetting at panel but won't click all the way over and little red indicator also on the breaker


Hello, In order to reset circuit breakers that have tripped under load, you must first flip the breaker all the way OFF, before you can then turn the breaker back ON. This should reset the breaker to turn the power back on to the circuit supplied by this breaker.

The red indicator is just there to make it easier to find the tripped breaker. Typically, the red indicator flag is a special feature of Square D QD breakers and panels.

If the breaker immediately trips again and doesn't stay on, then the device it is providing power to, still has a fault and it needs to be looked at to determine what is causing the fault and the tripping of the breaker.

Be sure to turn the breaker OFF if you are going to check the device for potential problems.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
