Hotpoint DWF31 dishwasher went bang mid cycle and mild smell of burning plastic. Still powers on, lights on correct setting but stuck at 77 mins with nothing happening. Water still inside. Any ideas


Sounds like you have burnt something. May have shorted out. Shut it down and pull the plug or could maybe cause a fire. Get a professional to look at it.

Burnt plastic smell (per tenent) during dry cycle. I saw no melted parts on heating coil. Where to look next?


Hello Jon, thank you for your post!
Based off what you have described the Frigidaire dishwasher is giving off a burnt smell. You may need to check under the dishwasher to verify all the components are in proper working order. The element may have touched the tub or spray arm and this may have caused the smell. I would suggest having a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My dishwasher model FGHD2433KB1 has a burnt smell


Check for plastic etc. on the heating element in the bottom. It will likely look similar to an oven element.

Motor does turn and smells like something burning


there is nothing that can smell like burning such as a slipping belt in dishwashers, but there is a heating element (the metal element loop at the bottom of the machine (inside where the dishes go). Check to see if a plastic item got stuck to this element. If not, then you need a professional to check the underside of machine for bad connections. Good luck, Macgivor.

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.

I think our dishwasher is burning our dishes


Your pump is clogged.

Remove racks and inspect pump at the bottom center of dishwasher. Remove pressure arms.and clean out debris from tips.

Remove screen and cover to impeller and wet vac out all the grunge, especially plastic and glass pieces.

Good Luck

Odor will not go away.............


hi there,

i would let you try putting a small can with charcoal in it inside the dishwasher. However, you cant use it for about 1 weeks' time.

Charcoal absorbs trapped smell.

hope this helps.
