Whirlpool 24" built-in GU1200XTLBO dishwasher electrical smell

\015 After about five minutes of running the dishwasher there is a strong "electrical" smell, like plastic or electric wires ..not a burning smell, definitely electrical. Machine works but smell becomes more intense. I've stopped using. Can anybody tell me what this is?\015

Answers :

I have a Whirlpool Model : GU1200XTL02. After running for a short time we would notice an electrical/burning smell which became more intense every time we would use the machine. I isolated the smell as coming from the top of the door, around the control panel.

After shutting off the electricity to the machine, I took off the control panel, exposed the circuit board and found 2 burn marks on it where wiring from the machine connects to the circuit board.

If we had not done anything I am sure it would have eventually caught fire. Fortunately, the smell had become quite disgusting before that happened.
This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

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

Dishwasher smoking Hi, my built-in Frigidaire DW emitted smoke about 2/3 of the way through its cycle. It was white smoke (not steam!) and smelled like an electrical fire. I shut it off immediately. It still works but I am afraid to use it. It is approx. 8 years old. Any advice?


I would shut down the circuit and open the door. Remove the lower basket and inspect/feel the heating element for breaks/"bumps"I bet you will find that it is damaged and needs to be replaced. Not a real hard task with tools and patience ... Dishwashers

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.

Whirlpool quiet partner ii dishwasher has quit working. Power is getting to the dishwasher but it is not coming on at all. There is water standing in the bottom of it and a very foul smell is present.

Are the top rack adjusters on the Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher an owner-serviceable item? Do most Whirlpool parts stores sell the top rack adjusters for the Adjustable 2-position top rack? My dishwasher is five years old and one of the adjusters has broken. The two-position rack seems like a good idea but the plastic part doesn't look like it was built for high-temperature durability.

We built a home last August and our appliances are Whirlpool. We were very happy to know that we would be having Whirlpool applicances bacause we've always heard how great they are. But, we have not been pleased with our dishwasher. We called Metro Builders in Tulsa, Ok who provided the dishwasher for our house and asked several times to come check on it because it will not dry our dishes. They told us to just use Jet Dry and that would take care of it. I told them we use Jet Dry and make s

Our whirlpool dishwash is not cleaning the dishes very well so I pulled it out from the wall and un hooked the electrical and the water lines. After looking at it I hooked everything back together and I have no electricity or power to my washing machine. Is there a reset button or something on the dishwasher that I need to push?


I've installed many DW's and haven't seen a reset on one. Take in mind, not saying that they're couldn't be one, but I doubt it IMHO. I've been installing all appliances proffessionally for 10 years and it just doesn't seem like there could be one. ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
