Doode, dishwashers are NOT supposed to 'bang'. Ever. Other than tossing lids around but that doesn't trip the breaker. What was it? Motor capacitor exploded?

It's not an affected Bosch dishwasher is it? I suggest you check the model and serial numbers and get on the phone to them, it looks like a model that's been affected by the recall.

Firstly, cookers are on a separate circuit...

...secondly, you've not said if the dishwasher is now working or, for that matter, if any of the other appliances affected by the 'noise that goes BANG' are....

even if its not affected by a recall its always better to be safe and have it check by a repair tech. Because only a repair tech can tell if the model is affected by a recall or not.

The pcb had gone bang but the thing was, it just skimmed the affected models.
