Vulcan dw causes RCD to trip
« on: January 13, 2009, 07:32:04 AM »

Hi All

Just a newbie so please be kind!

I have just bought a secondhand Vulcan Dishlex 500 Eco dishwasher.

I installed it and tested in "Fast Wash" mode and all was good. I then did a test in "normal" ( which includes longer heater times at the end of the washing cycle) and it popped the RCD (residual current device) on the power circuit in my house.

There is a link on this forum to this dw program;topic=477.0;attach=193

This dw has been in storage for a few years which may be a part of this problem.
Can anyone suggest a fix for this?

Cheers, Matt
