Having problems with your Fisher Dishwashers ?

Blows fuze and has burnt electrical smell

\015 We have a Fisher & Paykel single dishwasher. The other night it made a popping sounds a few minutes into the cycle and blew a fuse...immediately following was a burning electrical smell. Would this be a dishwasher problem or an electrical problem??? The dishwasher was there when we bought the house and is only about 5 years old. Thanks!!\015

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 was using my Karcher 350M pressure washer working fine but it just stopped having tripped the power boards circuit breaker. The breaker now trips each time I switch on the washer. There is no smell of burnt motor and the electric did not get wet when last in use. Appreciate any suggestions or tests that can be made. I have a decent multimeter. Thanks.

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 the start butt

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. The capacitor phase-shifts the AC current for starting the mo ... GE 24 in. GSD3960LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?


Hello , there should be a fuse located by or on the side of the board with 2 wires going to it , one from the latch and one from the board ,it does come off , use an ohm meter to check it , it should ohm out or have low resistance make sure to take t ...

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?


My dishwasher (same make and model) had a similar problem except I did see some sparks coming out from th front on the side of it (on Thanksgiving Day no less - a lot of manual diswahing followed). What the problem ultimatly was is what I believe to ... Dishwashers

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 an Hotpoint FDW70 Dishwasher that for some time has had an A10 fault which although stops the machine some times 70% of the time it does a full cycle. However it is now tripping out the electric at the mains. It is not RCD protected, but does not blow it's own 13amp fuse or that of the fused extention lead it is pluged in to. Tends to blow after about 5 minutes. I know about the fault code A10 being 'Fill Valve Triac' but as not an engineer what is that? and what parts are needed and or


Hi the fill valve triac is the plastic vlave that the inlet hose connects to you can get them for about £10 you reset the machine after replacing it by switching it on, pressing the power button leaving it off for about a minute then switching ... Dishwashers

Stopped mid-cycle by blowing fuse. Cannot remove water from machine. Every time I switch on it blows the trip again. I tried leaving it for a while in case water had got into the electrics but after about one second the fuse went again.


Can be the drain valve/ drain pump is faulty and so since it is in this cycle the drain current is too much for the fuse to blow.\012So recheck by disconnecting the valve and putting fuse in , if the fuse stays then it is confirmed. if not the ... Miele 24 in. G645SC Plus Free-standing Dishwasher

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?
