If the smoke was coming from inside the dishwasher... A common problem is a plastic item , utensil etc has fallen down onto the heating element. During the drying cycle this could possibly melt the plastic and generate some smoke.

Can calcium deposit on the heat element cause the unit to smoke and smell like an electrical fire? And how can. I fix this?


It could be.... It could also be something plastic that got onto the element that is melting and smoking. It could also be a connector to the control board that is loose and is over heating. This is more serious. Carefully check the heating element for some foreign plastic part that is pressing up against it. If there is nothing, then call a professional to make sure that it's not the controller that is overheating and in danger of catching fire.

Why is the dishwasher smelling like electric burning and smoke coming out of the door vent?


Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is giving off an electric burning smell and you are seeing smoke coming out of the door vent. It could possibly be an issue with your control panel or door vent, both have electrical components inside of them. Since it could be either one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to your home and diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this helps. -Matt

Vent assembly smoking


Its not the vent that has failed. You need to find out why the dishwasher is making smoke. The vent is only where it comes out. If you know what you are doing repair the dishwasher, if not replace it.

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.


Normally, the last part of any cycle involves using the heater element inside, and at the bottom of, the dishwasher to give dishes a final hot rinse. Possibly some small plastic-type material has become melted and stuck to the element - which will remain hot even after all water is discharged. Hence the smell.

Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher smoke coming out of door. smells like wires burning.


You need to replace the blower assembly, common prob after a few years of use.

Part number: 154226802 "Blower-Crossflow", suggested list at this time is around 30.00 us dollars.

To replace: TURN OFF BRAKER TO DISHWASHER
Open door, remove inside screws form panel and carefully remove panel up from door, blower is next to timer on control panel.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Energy Star blinking lights.


Hmmm...don't know why this worked, but it did. When the lights were flashing when I tried to start my Frigidaire dishwasher model#FDB1500LF, nothing would happen...just blinking lights, so I went to the house electrical panel, found the switch for the dishwasher, turned off & on again, and now the dishwasher works.
Go figure.

Glasses Smell after Washing


if you are using the heater to dry them .. have you ever washed anything plastic that may have melted onto the heater element? You might try flushing the dishwasher with white vinegar and then run a set of glasses in the energy efficient mode ( no heater to dry them)..just air dried.. See if any of these ideas rid the chemical smell you have observed... Hope this helps///

Yes, have it checked out.  You have a wiring issue inside the door panel that is smoking and needs to be addressed.
