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?
