Smell of burning plastic on exterior of Amana ADW862EAS dishwasher

\015 Yesterday night, I smelled burning plastic while running the dishwasher. I checked inside and no dishes were melted, so I let the run complete. After emptying the dishwasher, I pulled it out from under the counter to check the outlet (no melting there) and the machine itself. Under the padded wrap, I see several black panels glued on to the dishwasher - most of these are flat, but a few are warped or bubbling. I believe that this was the culprit, but it's not clear to me what purpose these serve OR if the fact that they are melting is a bad sign or just a fact of life with an 11-year-old dishwasher.\015\012\015\012Has anyone dealt with the same issue?\015

Dishwasher model 16362, turns on, but does not fill with water and has a buzzing sound a few minuets into cycle, then smells like burning plastic. Took the front panel off, no spec sheet in plastic bag. I don't know what to do, is this machine toast? Almost 7 years old.


Hi,\015\012\015\012The dishwasher is probably not toast but the fill valve is...and the hot smell is the heating element coming on with no water in the dishwasher...\015\012\015\012I would check out that fill valve and see why ... Dishwashers

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

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.

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

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.

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1383 is about 4 years old. The past 2 months it has developed a strong plastic or chemical smell. The smell has tainted brand new glasses that then have the odor when they are taken from the shelf to use. It is very strong during use and can be smelled throughout the house. I have taken everything out down to the screen to look for debris or anything that could cause the smell. I have tried the vinegar remedy and also scrubbed the entire inside with bleach. Nothing

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
