Question about Whirlpool GU1200XTLS Stainless Steel Dishwasher
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?
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.
