GE Dishwasher popping sound then smell of burning, flash of light

\015 While the dishwasher was running I heard a popping sound. The dishwasher tripped the outlet closest to it (for garbage disposal also) AS WELL as the main fuse. Checked inside and everything looked okay. Hadn't finished it's cycle.\015\012\015\012When the main fuse was reset the dishwasher door was OPEN and I heard the POP again as well as saw a spark(?) of light come out of the bottom. It's 8:30pm - what should I do? Turn off the main again (it didn't trip of the 2nd time - just the outlet). Take of the bottom panel to make sure nothings smoldering under there? I called Factory Service - they said to disconnect - what I'm an electrician now!! LOL\015

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit


Hello Greg,\015\012\015\012Your diagnosis is pretty good, but the buzzing suggests it may be the capacitor for the pump motor that has failed rather than the pump motor itself.

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

We have a Siemens dishwasher SE25M851. It had the check water light on, so we have checked all water flows which seem fine. There is what I think is an Aquastop connected to the water hose, which I have no idea if the problem is there, but when I now put the dishwasher on there is a burning smell coming out of it, so have had to turn off power supply. Can you shed any light to the problem?

Hello, my slimline, Hoover, HEDS 668, AAA class, dishwasher is playing up. During a wash cycle, my meter tripped. When I put the power back on, all the light were flashing and beeping. The beeping stops after a while and all the lights stay on. It sounds like it is trying to fill up or drain or something too, but that soon stops. The filters are clean. What could be the problem?

About 7 or 8 minutes after setting my dishwasher to run a "Normal" cycle, I noticed that it didn't sound right. The Sensing light and the Add a Dish light were both on. I hit cancel and opened the door to find the inside totally dry and just barely warm. It had a slight smell - probably from the motor trying to run unsucessfully. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue without calling a repairman?
