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.
Let me know how it goes? Thank You , Huuum Please remember to leave a rating!

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.
im not a dishwasher repair man but i know about mechanical and electrical equipment. sounds to me like a motor has burnt or burning out probably with one of the pumps. if its during wash then its the wash pump if during drain then the drain pump (im assuming these are two separate pumps)
Pour some bleach into the stinky backwash. I know that this is not good for the environment but it will take the stench away while you get a new dishwasher. Sorry but you have plumbing problems out of my range.
Can't see what your original problem was but the electrical smell could be the power connection in the junction box in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have had several burn the wires here.
Also, not sure of the age of d'washer. some of the older ones had an issue where the wires come up into the door. look at the harness where it goes thru the bottom of the door.
Sounds like the dishwasher is not getting enough water during it's fill cycle due to low water pressure on supply line or the dishwasher pump is not working correctly. Could be obstructed with food matter, etc.Hope this helps
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.
humming is the motor powered up but not turning. burning smell is the motor overheating. cause may be the motor capacitor which is a cheap part. try replecing it and hope thge motor survived. could also be a foreign object in the pump impellor
