Default Voltage earthing through dishwasher casing/door


But a shock form it means its leaking more than it should, so yes
somethings wrong.

I don't agree with that bit. A Class 1 appliance like this could leak
up to 0.75 mA, which is more then enough to give a perceptible sensation
or tingle, but not a dangerous shock. There's no evidence here of
anything being wrong at all, apart from the OP having extension leads
lying around with no earth conductor.
