What may be the problem if the steel braided flexible hose to your dishwasher sparked and flipped a breaker when it touched a copper pipe?

I would think it is not grounded correctly or has some type ofshort in it. If the steel braid caused a breaker to trip then you definitely have a short somewhere. Very dangerous and needs to be fixed immediately before someone is hurt or killed! Call a licensed electrician!

The breaker is probably in the trip position. In the trip position the breaker handle does not go all the way to the off position but positions itself in mid position. Just move the handle of the breaker to the off position and you should feel it reset. There will be a little resistance when moving to the off position. Now move the breaker handle to the on position and there will be another click. This time the circuit should operate as normal.
