Dishwasher circuit tripping
We have a dishwasher on a dedicated circuit. It has been running without problems for about 5 years (the approximate age of both the dishwasher and the electrical panel). This morning, when I tried to run the dishwasher, I discovered that the circuit had tripped. I turned it off, and then on, and it immediately tripped again. I turned it off and on again, and this time it stayed on. I started the dishwasher, and it got part-way done ( to the drying cycle, I think), and then the circuit tripped. At this point, I'm going to leave the dishwasher and the circuit panel alone until I figure out what's wrong. I have no idea how to diagnose the problem, though. I can handle the dishwasher repair if I have some idea of how to find the problem. If the problem is electrical, I'll probably call an electrician (I'm kind of scared to work with the electrical panel), but I don't want to call an electrician and then find out the problem is the dishwasher. I could use some advice on how to figure out what's wrong and maybe how to fix it. Thanks for the help!
