Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 16533 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

It is not pumping water into the spray arm to wash the dishes. I can get it to fill with water and drain the water, but when it fills and the cycle timer starts, nothing happens, and a slight burning smell occurs. Does this model have a reversable pump or a direct drive? I am thinking this is where i need to start.

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

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.

Hi I have a karcher 2020b. When power is on it sounds like it is on... When I press the trigger almost no water comes out. When this happened unnoticed oil on the floor afterwards. I have cleaned the filter, the nozzle and flushed the water through to get rid of a possible air lock to no avail. It also smelt slightly of burning plastic - any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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. When I open the door mid-cycle, clouds of steam emerge and the whole dishwasher smells hot - almost a burning smell. 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

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

Dub750x leaks My Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Series Model DUB750XB-0 dishwasher produces a small puddle of water on tile floor in front of unit, but it doesn't seem to be coming from underneath it as tile/grout right in front of it aren't wet. This happens hours after the dishwasher has been run, usually at night, whether on Air Dry or Heat Dry setting. This began occurring recently after years of use without the problem. Sometimes it occurs more than once after washing/unloading. Coul

Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

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 Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher model SGS56E02GB/47 When you switch it on no water is coming through - what sounds like the pump/motor sounds a lot rougher than normal and there's a very very faint electrical burning smell.

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
