I bought a house that did not have a dishwasher installed (the seller gave a good rebate because of that).
I have no experience installing these things, so I was searching for a handyman to do the installation for me. Almost everybody that I spoke to told me that I would need an electrician to run a cable from my panel (in the basement) to the kitchen cabinet. I believe that made sense, considering how old is the house, and that the seller gave the rebate cause she probably knew that already.
So I found a electrician, and they charged me around $800 to install a GFCI breaker (according to them, the code requires that), and pull a cable from this breaker to the kitchen (something around 30ft, and a hole). It was more or less, $550 for breaker and installation, $150 for the permit, and another $100 which I don't remember.
Then, a handyman came to do the dishwasher installation.
The issue, it's that every time I plug the dishwasher into the outlet, the GFCI breaker is tripping. If I connect to another outlet (using an extension cord), I don't have any issues.
I've called the electrician again, and he told me this is a common issue with dishwashers, and that after the inspection, he could return to remove the GFCI and install a normal breaker, and the problem would be solved, for another $100. I did run some search on my end, and I indeed found some people talking about this type of errors, but this would only happen with old dishwashers, and mine is new.
The handyman suggested another electrician, which was all the time calling me stupid for the amount of money I've already paid, and that he would do the same thing (replace the breaker) for $300.
Now... what should I do? Of course, that if I have to pay again, I will pay for the first electrician that it's cheaper, and he knew what he did first.
EDIT: I've did tested the outlet with other appliances, and all of them worked. Then, I've tested connecting the dishwasher to another GCFI plug, and it also also tripped. So, it's indeed the dishwasher, like others already said. I will call the manufacturer today...
EDIT2: I'm returning the dishwasher, and I should get a new one soon. Thank you all for all the help.
