Dishwasher smoking Hi, my built-in Frigidaire DW emitted smoke about 2/3 of the way through its cycle. It was white smoke (not steam!) and smelled like an electrical fire. I shut it off immediately. It still works but I am afraid to use it. It is approx. 8 years old. Any advice?

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

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.

Dishwasher started smelling funny like electrical smoke. I opened up the top by the digital read out and noticed one of the wires was charred and had been smoking. worth it to call repairman? or buy a new one.


I would call a repairman or just cut out the bad spot in the wire and use a **** connector and splice in some new wire. Maybe a new connector because it may have been caused by a loose connection drawing heat due to arching. I doubt its a major issue ... Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?
