The drying element has possibly burnt out. This element is at the bottom of the dishwasher and will burn out if water has gotten past the ceramic protective cover of the element.. Good Luck

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.

Bosh SHY56A Dishwasher - Loud Pop and Smoke While


Hey Matt,
Dishwashers are not that complicated.. Turn off the breaker, pull the machine out - away from the wall..(there will/should be at lest two screws in the top edge holding it to the counter.. remove them first.. then pull it out until you can turn off the water supply.. When you are able to completely remove the washer, you should be able (possibly)to see what happened.. Check to see if the washer arm (inside the washer) will turn, if not.. replace the motor.., check to see if the pump belt will turn?.. it could be the pump drive motor or the pump its self..(remove the belt), then see if the motor will turn, check to see if the pump will turn.
.. White smoke makes me think that the belt was turning and the pump NOT turning..that will cause the belt to smoke.. and smell like burning rubber..If the pump will not turn. you have found t he problem... Also ..Check to make sure there is not a knife or some other object lodged in the drain or pump
NOW -- With all this.. Sometimes REPLACING the machine is actually cheaper than repairing the old one!!! Your wife deserves a NEW one!!

I have a whirlpool Du810SWRQ0 dishwasher. Whwn we wash the dishes, it is ok until the drying process start. Then it has smoke from inside. So, we can not use heat dry anymore.


smoke from inside the dishwasher or the panel?

if smoke is from inside the dishwasher... firstly check that the element is clean? is there any evidence of melting on your lower basket shelf or cutlery basket? if so the thermostat or rhe heating element control may be faulty and will require repair. If its an old dishwasher, sometimes its just easier to bite the bullet and buy a new one.

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.

Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher smoke coming out of door. smells like wires burning.


You need to replace the blower assembly, common prob after a few years of use.

Part number: 154226802 "Blower-Crossflow", suggested list at this time is around 30.00 us dollars.

To replace: TURN OFF BRAKER TO DISHWASHER
Open door, remove inside screws form panel and carefully remove panel up from door, blower is next to timer on control panel.

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.
