Re: aeg dishwasher, smelled hot and stopped pumping water
Hello mmhmmd Welcome
What is the MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside. Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system? If you do not have this equipment mentioned below you may want to call a pro!
Here are four things to check forthis problem!
Water source turned off Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.
Float switch The float switch allows
water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up
off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the
switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water
will not enter into the machine Defective water inlet valve If there is 110v across
the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill,
the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If
the water does not enter, the valve is defective.
Defective Timer The timer is a series of
switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in
the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge
of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as
well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied
with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.
If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.
Your pump is not working because it is not extracting the water. You are right with the smell of burning electrical. Depending on the age of the washer it might cost more to repair than purchase a new one. There could be a leak somewhere because water got to the wires and maybe shorted the pump. Good Luck
machine most likely has something caught in either the pump or one of the lines and you should clean out the pump with the smell s it a mold type smell or like a wet clothes type smell or a stagnant water smell that your smelling for the smell after you clean out the pump the drain line and the hoses at home depot they sell a product for washermachines that takes the smell out it is called AFFRESH this is one of the best products to use in washer machine they also make a type for dishwashers as well if you have anyfurther questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again
p.s your pump could also be bad from debris sitting in the line
it sounds like u might have some electrical problem in the controls however it may be the pump itsself has gone out but if u r getting an electrical smell could be causing the pump not to get power or the pump has burnt up causing the wires to get hot and start to melt myy bet is that the pump has gone out its not horribly bad to change out but kind of difficult for someone who isnt used to doing this kind of stuff
Just fixed a similar problem on an AEG F3A by following other advice on this site. Simply tip the machine forwards on to its door (best empty it of crockery first!!!).and then put it upright again when water has stopped dripping out of it. You wil get quite a bit of water on your floor which I reduced by pumping the water out of the salt resevoir first - but if you don't have a pump just have several towels handy
Had similar problem on my Siemens which is the same as Bosh. I started to take it apart to see what had gone wrong. Eventually I had to disconnect the cable going into the washer - its in a small box at the front at the bottom. The wire nut connectors had melted and shorted out. Unfortunately now it won't fill with water. The smell was not like wood so maybe a different problem.
Although it might not be the most ecological solution, you might add a small amount of bleach to the container, once a week (let it act for some hours before you use the washing machine again - at night for example). I'm pretty sure it will help!
