Well, hard to say at this point. Your wiring sounds correct, but there may be some other stuff going on which you may have not anticipated. First off, what size breker is attached to the wires you connected to the machine. Most household machine require a 20 amp breaker. If you had fire, my first concern is the breaker in this circuit is either too large, or not functioning correctly.
\015\012Secondly, because the problem occured when the wash motor engaged suggests a problem with that circuit.
\015\012You don't say much about the machine itself, so I am wondering if there may have been some water in the motor or maybe some wire are shorted to ground on that circuit.
\015\012Look for burn marks around the motor and it's wiring and repair all you find.
\015\012Hope this helps,

I am installing a dishwasher. When I went to wire I had only two wires a white and blue comming through the house wiring and a white and black from the dishwasher. Does blue go to black. White to white and how do I gound it Thanks George


If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for Power on the Blue wire. Or you can open the face of your fuse box and look to make sure the Blue wire is connected to the fuse. If it is, just hook up your Black from dishwasher to the blue from house. ... Dishwashers

I'm attempting to reuse a Maytag dishwasher motor for a bench grinder. Since this is a reversible motor, I'm not sure how to connect the wiring to a simple switch so that it works in one direction only. The motor has 4 wires: blue, gray, red, yellow. Not sure which to connect to the hot (black), return (white) and ground (bare) wires from the romex and can't find a wiring diagram online for this dishwasher. Any ideas? Thanks.

All of a sudden about 1 month ago my stainless steel dishwasher started getting a strange white film on bottom which now is starting to turn crusty, It is affecting the soap dispenser badly and certain black plastic utensils being washed come out with this white film. Mysteriously, all the dishes, glasses, silverware come out perfectly clean. What is causing this? It is getting worse.


You could try adding vinegar to clean the white film off. If you wanted to be aggressive with it try using CLR to clean off the film from the dishwasher. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new
