Bosch dishwasher SHE44C02UC, serial # 13693156: Does not cycle. I turn off and drain by pressing "Regular Wash" and "Rinse and Hold" together (need several of these to completely drain), then rinse by starting cycle and repeating above sequence. Slight burning smell also - motor? Is there a way to initialize the sequence, and if there is, is it advisable, given the slight smell? Robert Langridge

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.


Normally, the last part of any cycle involves using the heater element inside, and at the bottom of, the dishwasher to give dishes a final hot rinse.

I have a Blanco Dishwasher Model BFDWC65X. It appears that the thermostat may be faulty as the water gets extremely hot on cycle 3 which is supposed to operate at 45 degrees centigrade. When I open the door mid-cycle, clouds of steam emerge and the whole dishwasher smells hot - almost a burning smell. I have found an online source for a replacement thermostat, but would like to know how difficult a job it will be to replace the thermostat. Also where can I find a manual that details where the th

There's a foul smell coming from the dishwasher evert time I open it. Doing a wash does not solve this. I'v had this since it was new, months ago, and have had the installer look at it, said it wasn't his problem. Had a tech. come in and said it wasn't his problem.

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old. With cost of replacement motor and possible part (pump?) that might have clogged and caused motor freeze up, is it worth fixing or junk

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU890SWKQO). I turned it on and for a few minutes only the motor was running, no water. I opened the dishwasher to stop it and turn it off, then on again. When I opened it, the was an odor (burning or heat smell) and it was foggy (steam or smoke, not sure which) inside. I am assuming I did not turn the dial correctly so it only 'clicked' on the motor. Concerned now that the dishwasher is broken or concerned that it's not safe to use. Was the steam/smoke

Kitchenaid (KUDM01TJWH0) Shortly aftter starting my kitchenaid (KUDM01tJWH0) dishwasher, smoke began coming out of the door. I opened the door and smelled a strong electrical smell. It is now completely dead. I drained the water out of the water line, thinking it might be plugged, but still nothing. What should my first move be to determine the cause? Breakers are fine. I think it is was purchased approximately 2001. Thank you!

We have a Bosch SHU9925UC dishwasher, installed in 2002. In August 2010, the water didn't drain, and a service technician discovered melted wire nuts at the main incoming power junction, presumably due to a loose connection there. He re-wired it. Now it's March 2011 and yesterday we smelled electric fire smoke coming from the dishwahser, opened it up and again found melted wirenuts. So is it really just poor installation, given that now 2 different installers have created the same problem?

Burning smell from our Dishwasher. I opened it up and found a little square brown thing attached to the motor - It has a terminal at one end that a white with a coloured stripe cable attaches to via a slip on terminal and 2 terminals to slot the little unit directly into the motor. Anyway, this little unit has obviously burnt out and this is the problem. Except my problem is that I dont know what this little unit is, so dont know what to ask for at the spare parts centre. Can anyone identify

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in the large drain tube under the "filter" and it doesn't look clean. I contacted Bosch by phone as soon as this was discovered - in a matter of days after purchase - and was told by a rather haughty service person to leave the dishwasher door open. Not a practical suggestion even if it didn't sm

We just moved into a house with a Bosch SHY66C05UC dishwasher and it emits the foulest smell whenever we open the door. We only do the dishes every 3 days. Can anyone suggest a solution? By the way, the dishwasher has its own drain hose which is not connected to the garbage disposal. Thank you!


You probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some white vinegar, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the resi ... Bosch 24 in.

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.
