    Is this a new dishwasher or a old one ?

    A 13a fuse is the max you can have in a plug, so if its tripping your electric you have a problem somewhere. It might be worth telling us the make/model that way we can tell you what fuse it should be, this is worked out by the wattage of the dishwasher

    Does it trip as soon as its switched on or as soon as it starts to work etc ?

    It might be the RCD.

    Look at the thing that is tripping and tell us everything that is printed or engraved on it.

    Everything
