Dishwasher tripping circuit board

While dishwasher was running it tripped all sockets on that floor. Now every time we switch dishwasher wall switch on, the circuit board trips. Is it worth getting the machine/wiring tested or just get new machine?

If its only a budget machine then its probably easier in the long run just to replace it. If it trips out the circuit as soon as you switch it on you could confirm a fault with a pat/insulation test after that's confirmed you are the looking at someone tracking down the fault which could be a water leak or an element failure.

90% likely that its the element in the machine that's gone and is causing a neutral to earth fault. Could be a £50 repair (approx.)
