This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

SOURCE: code f7 appearing on whirlpool

f7 means a water flow meter problem. Either your dishwasher is not getting proper water pressure, or the flow meter is bad. Check to make sure you have good water pressure to the dishwasher, and then check that your water is coming in at a good flow rate. If both of these are ok, then replace the flow meter. If your house water pressure to the dishwasher is good, but your water flow coming into the dishwasher is slow, then your dishwasher water valve is probably plugged. Some valves you can take apart and clean out, and some you will need to replace. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Sounds like you have a heating problem. Machines with a timer are controlled by the thermostat, so it wont click on until the machine reaches the correct temperature. Is the water hot? If yes then you need to replace the thermostat and high limit stat. If not hen it will be either the stats or element. Most likely the stats.

They typically look something like this, but if you visit an online spares site and select your make and model it will give you a breakdown of all the parts. To change put machine on its side and remove the bottom panel, this will give access to the components. If not then tilt machine back and remove the front kicker plate and the the panel in behind. The stats will be at the front of the appliance for access. Hope this helps

Our dishwasher started smelling like something is burning, I turned it off straight away, no visible smoke or anything but it hasn't been cleaning very well for a while now. Are these the death throes? Or...


Make sure there isn't any plastic on the heating element. Also check to see if there is any evidence of previously melted plastic. If it smells like plastic burning & you aren't using any heated options, cut the power & call for service.

How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.
