Having problems with your Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ Built-in Dishwasher ?

Odd perhaps burning smell

\015 Last evening during second half of cycle an odd smell became present. No smoke but the prevailing smell. Finished cycle and removed dishes that were perfectly cleaned. Visually inspected interior but saw nothing out of the norm except the smell was there. This morning looked inside again and smell was faintly still present after leaving it partially opened throughout the night. Is it safe to run again this evening? Is it covered under warranty (03/21/07 purchase date)? Cannot afford major repairs unemployed. Please advise. Your reply appreciated. Mario\015

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

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.

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
