Is the DW the only load on this GFI? A GFI is looking for a total accumulative leaks or bleeds to ground on the circuit. The DW just might be the final straw. Most manufacturers of Appliances do not recommend that you run any Appliance on a GFI (gets tricky because some codes advise you have to depending on location). GFI's can become weak and trip prematurely as well, I replaced two in my old home inside of 7 years and one in my new home within two years. Does it do it immediately? At one certain part of the cycle?

Actually the DW is not plugged into the GFI sockets however two close by GFI sockets blow as soon as we turn the DW on.

That means the DW is on that GFI circuit. Though not "plugged" in to it, it is wired into that circuit. One thing you can try is to kill power to the unit and use a test cord to run the unit on a non GFI outlet. If it works, then the problem is more then likely in your GFI circuit. If it does not, then we will want to start making some cks to the unit to see if we have a s shorted or grounded component. Since your model starts each cycle with a drain purge, I would start by ohming out your motor and making sure your connections are good and tight at your wire nuts in your DW conduit box behind the kick plate.

the elecrical code where i live says that you must have d/w on its own dedicated circuit,ang groung fault circuit interrupters are not to be used on such loads. i recall reading a maytag bulletin some time ago that stated if the diswasher was hooked up to improper polarity(reverse hot and neutral) it could cause premature failure of the heating element(grounding) which would obviously trip a g.f.c.i.   first,measuer heating element and ensure there is NO path to the jacket of the element from either terminal- make certain that d/w is wired to proper polarity- white is neutral and should have no pressure to ground, black is hot and should have 120v to ground- look into simply feeding d/w with a dedicated breaker to avoid confusion in the future.
