Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

If the dishwasher is tripping the electrics out then the most common cause of this is either the wash heater or the wash motor. These are the 2 most common things inside these that causes this fault.

What you need to do if you are loking at doing this yourself is pull the dishwasher out and remove the right hand side panel.

From there you will be able to see the wash motor and the heater.

Make sure its unplugged and then disconnect the wires on the heater.

Then turn it back on and see if it runs with tripping . If it does then the heater is the fault and will need to be replaced.

But if its still tripping with the heater disconnected then do the same to the wash motor and see how it goes from there.

Check that and see how it goes. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
