Having problems with your Kenmore 14249 Dishwasher ?

Motor/relay(?) smells hot, wont do next, after cool runs ok

\015 Kenmore 18in built-in model 587-14249990. Notes: the timer tests fine at all steps and the wiring & contacts to motor relay & motor (cant see actual motor contacts as wires go inside housing) look all good. I also fully disassembled lower arm unit & water gears etc down to just the motor shaft and all were clear & the motor shaft turns freely either way.\015\012\015\012BUT the problem is- the dishwasher starts & runs fine (as long as its cool) from anywhere in the cycles I want, but after a few minutes in wash or drain, I notice a "hot" smell from motor/relay area when the motor is running. The next request of the cycle (be it wash or drain), the motor won't kick back on. If I stop the cycle & let the motor/relay(?) cool, then re-start in same place, the motor does whatever is next just fine until it heats up again. I hope its the motor relay & not the motor. Any ideas?? Thanks! Deb\015

Leaking from under dishwasher. Has run great since 1996. Under counter model in manufactured home. Chnaged to drop in pellet dishwasher detergent and it ran great. There is no water inside the dishwasher circular drain. We never use the heating coil to dry the dishes. We have turned off the water supply line under the sink to the dishwasher. Cool clear water is running out from under the bottom right corner. The hot water heater is right next to it and everything is dry and warm under it which i

I have a Bosch SHU53513UC/U12 dishwasher. My initial problem is that the washer smells bad after a cycle and I've noticed some water sitting in the bottom of the unit. After running a diagnostic test, it results in a "2" heating fault. I followed your advice and used a current coil to and attached it to the GYBK-a1-3 hot wire on the control board. After running the test again, it only gets as high as 1.15A and manual says it should reach 11A. What should I do next?

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try
