SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher,

Our control panel is fine. For now. (The machine is only 3 months old). This is our problem--and I haven't yet seen this complaint at all over the internt: The lower wash arm is getting stuck on the bottom rack and stopping immediately. This seems to be a design flaw. The bottom rack is just built too low. A service man was out once. He tightened the wash arm. Didn't work. The service department at the dealership is now ignoring our subsequent calls!! So I wonder if the "not cleaning" problem you have is because of this.

SOURCE: dishwasher had a burning smell and smoke was coming out

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.

is your dishwasher less than a year old? if so you need to call bosch and have all the gaskets replaced. they tried a new chemical to make the gasket but now have found that after the dry cycle the gaskets put off a strange odor like your discribing. ive changed several gaskets because of this

After you turn off the power to your dishwasher, you can inspect the dishwasher with a flashlight to find where the melting happened. If it is near the circle that is the heating element, you can suspect the timer froze during the drying cycle.

But also open things up and look for shorted/melted wires (in the door panel and under the dishwasher.)

No matter what you find, if you have proof of purchase for your dishwasher, I would press for repair/replacement from the manufacturer.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

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.

My dishwasher by Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series Model gpd8998jc0 has all lights flashing and could not be started. I smelled burning from dishwasher. Could it be motor burning?


Hello,

it could be the motor depending on where it's coming. You can remove the lower panel, there are only two screws that hold it on. Look under their and inspect the motor.

Another part that could cause this issue is the mother board. The board is located behind the control panel. Remove the screws around the door frame to loosen and remove the control panel.

On most of these you also have to remove the plastic shielding that cover the control board. To do so remove the three or four screws that mount the board down.

Often these control boards will burn and create a smell like this.

Let me know.

I started my washer last night then went to check on it and it was not on. I tried to turn it on but no power. I checked the breaker and it flipped the bresker so I turned it back on. When I push the power...


If the breaker tripped, something shorted to ground in your control panel. You resetting the breaker and pushing the power button then cause something to burn further. I would suggest turning off the breaker then taking the control panel off to see where the "burning smell and small amount of smoke" came from. Look to see if a wire was rubbing against metal somewhere.

Frigidaire window unit with heat and a/c smoke & burning smells


Hi, Anytime you turn a unit on like this and it smells and smokes, something is wrong. Did it smell as though it was electrical burning? Usually the blower motor is the first motor to go as they collect all of the return air and dust from the air and clog up the windings. They get hot and start to smoke, and you will know due to the smell of electrical wiring. I would turn it back on and see if it starts up and runs. If the motor hesitates in anyway, turn it off, or unplug it.If it is wired directly into a box, find out where the breaker is. If you are in fear of it catching on fire, call a air conditioning company out. I have seen them smoke like crazy but never had one catch on fire, never. I would turn it on, it will trip the breaker if the motor fails. Just watch it closely. If you can pull the front cover off and then turn it on, you may be able to see where the smoking is coming from, a motor ect.
Sincerely,

OVEN WILL NOT BAKE , IT WILL BROIL


I have the same problem, I took off the back panel and noticed that the EOC (electronic oven control) board is blackened and most likley need to be replaced. My wife was cooking a pizza and she smelled a burning plastic smell, she looked in the oven and saw the pizza on fire and smoke bellowing from the control panel area. So i unplugged the oven and saw the circuit board did start on fire and fortunatly it went out before serious damage. No matter what you set the oven on the display shows it as being correct, but only the top element comes on and it is on HIGH!!!! DO NOT BUY FRIDGIDAIRE!!!!
