As for the "how does this work? Is this normal? How comes?"

You really need to familiarize yourself with being able to read and understand a transformer diagram.

Do you know how to read and understand one of those?

And, I suppose knowing how a simple circuit works would help.

Hi. Here’s my solution for you bud. For the 12/3,use red for your D/W, and black for your puck lights (low voltage)or under the cabinet lightings (sharing neutral for the 2 circuit)and run a dedicated circuit meant for your GFCI receptacle. If you have 2 GFCI receptacles on your counter, just connect the 2nd receptacle (20 amp regular receptacle) from the load side of the GFCI. It might be messy and hard for you as for those finished wall but you’ll know for sure you’re not burning down your house or frying up your high end bosch D/W. Just trying not to make it too complicated for you. If you still find it hard to do, call an electrician.
Hope it will help you bud.

A so called electrician is the one who hooked this mess up in the first place. That is why I came here looking for help.

" run a dedicated circuit "
Yeah this is an option that I thought about,but running wires from these outlet boxes back to the panel box on a finished back splash would be a big pain in the ass.

I wish the "expert" poster's that replied to this thread who didn't know the answer to my questions, troll someone else's post to show how smart they are.
To ask why this post isn't locked demonstrates the arrogance and self importance some of you "electricians" have.

The bottom line is when someone post a question that you don't know the answer to or you just don't like the question or your one of those tradesmen that think when you need a light bulb changed to call an electrician, stay away and mind your own business.
Lock it now.

No, the arrogance is from you, who thinks you are above the rules. When you signed up you read the clear warning that this forum is for electrical professionals only. What makes you think that you are so much more special than everyone else that you can breaks the rules and get away with it?

That is enough.

I going to lock this thread now.

To OP I did look up what your profile stated saying " service technician "

I do not know how far your area cover for repairs.

If you going help your buddy with electrical work IMO the best answer is just leave it and let experinced electrician deal with branch circuit because the experinced electrician can able see what excatally what is going on with the circuit.

I have a feeling someone did miswired the GFCI on MWBC that is part of the issue.

Now the thread is closed.
