Dishwasher burning smell now not working

Hi

in mid-cycle there was a burning smell coming from my Mitsui MS160L Dishwasher and then it lost power completely. Just to be sure, I've changed the fuse on the plug but still no power. Any advice gratefully appreciated.

    Ronnie - normally when you switch the machine on, a light on the control panel lights up - there's no light now. Would the motor burning out result in this?

    Thanks again!

Machine went bang mid cycle and tripped electrics. If power is sent to the machine it immediately goes bang and emits a burning smell. What is wrong with my machine?


One possibility is that water leaked into the wiring and shorted it. There may be an access panel in front that you can remove to look for signs of leakage.

My GSX4756 dishwasher seemed to stop mid cycle and the start light is flashing. I have pressed the start button until the light goes out but as soon as I close the door it starts again on the rinse cycle...


I think.
However, rarely have I encountered an inlet valve that emitted a burning smell. So I'd expect there to be some other problem in there.
But, if the inlet valve didn't pass the test, then it needs to be replaced. Plus, if it was stuck on the rinse cycle and the valve was out, then that is where the cycle would hang up.
Burning smells usually come from a motor, a belt, shorted wiring or a heating element. So if everything else checks out, then go for replacing the valve. The instructions are included in our dishwasher repair section.

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

Kenmore elite dishwasher stops mid cycle


I assume you mean it stopped in mid cycle and is now dead. If this is the case you will need to turn off the power to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the front control panel There is a thermal fuse clipped to the front of the control panel Check it using an ohmmeter or continuity tester If it is open you will need to replace it with a kit containing the fuse and wire connectors Do not replace just the thermal fuse the problem will surely return. Also inspect the control board for burned areas.If the control board is burned you should replace the wiring harness with the control assembly

Cycle runs but dishes are still dirty. No water.


Sounds like an inlet valve. If there is no water in the pump when it runs you can burn up the rubber seals. After fixing the fill problem you should check underneath for any leaks.

Dishwasher not working


The motor may be burned out or there may be another electrical issue which would also cause the symptoms you describe. Call around and try to get an estimate, and at the same time look at new ones on sale.............one question is how secure will u feel with that maching......now that it has acted up like this.

No power


Check the wiring connection. The merrets can come loose and you then loose power. Turn off power first, if this is the case, make sure you tape them up.
