Re: "rubber burning" smell

Check to see if the motor is overheating, the motor could
be getting hot causing the smell, if the motor is'nt overheating, then call the local repair man, we live in miami(florida), and we have a dish washer that keeps on rumbling, we are getting it fixed today, the only big big problem is it seems to draw alot of electricity when in operation, so there's my problem
p.s. is your dishwasher also rumbling and drawing electricity?

My Indesit IDL40 dishwasher, loud bang with slight burning smell but still working?

Any burning smell is not good. Indicates that something in there is too hot and perhaps melting something. Could even catch fire......

Could very well be that whatever is responsible for the noise can be causing the problemo.

A plastic lid melted on the coil, still smells like "melted wax", seems clean, what can I do?

You will probably have to replace the heating coil in the bottom of the dishwasher to get rid of the smell. The coils aren't that expensive and replacing them is an easy job. Hardest part is getting the dishwasher out from under the counter to do it.

Dishwaer won't wash

Sounds like the impeller has frozen up or the motor burned up. Check the video below to troubleshoot.
Check your warranty,. Call manufacturer with model number and they might be able to help you. If you have to buy the motor, get the part number and do a search online. The manufacturers tend to be a bit high.

Good luck.

The dishwasher delays mid cycle and will stay in the same spot, just after "short wash." If allowed to just hang there, it also develops a slight rubber burning smell. If I turn the dial past...

it sounds like the timer has a worn gear and will need to be replaced if you check with your local parts distributor they are rebuildable for a lesser cost

Cycle runs but dishes are still dirty. No water.

Sounds like an inlet valve. If there is no water in the pump when it runs you can burn up the rubber seals. After fixing the fill problem you should check underneath for any leaks.

BOSCH DW burned plastic smell, common problem?

I have this exact same smell issue from the back black panel at rear of dishwasher (free standing so easy to pinpoint. I replaced the old bosch with this Bosch (approx 12 months ago) for the same reason, and am extremely disappointed to have the same issue. It is almost as though the black insulation material is disintegrating? I wonder what it is made from? Smells noxious. It is very hot to touch during a cycle too. Good luck,

Dishwasher not cleaning the dishes

Hi there. Here are some solutions that may help you combat this issue with the non cleaning of the dishes during the wash.

• Choose another cycle for longer washing
• Check rack loading section for proper
loading—avoid nesting items.
• Home water pressure may be too low—
should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch
• Check incoming water temperature. It
should be at least 120°F (49°C). (See
Factors Affecting Performance.)
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard
water, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. (See Detergent Chart.)
• Use fresh detergent.
• Check to make sure funnel in top rack is not
• Make sure items are not blocking the spray
arms, preventing them from rotating.
• Check to see if the rinse aid dispenser
needs refilling.

Next, you mentioned in your text that you were experiencing a burning scent after the was or during it. i have a few solutions for that as well.

• Soiled dishes left in dishwasher too long can
create an odor. Use Rinse & Hold cycle.
• There will be a "new" smell when first
installed. This is normal.
• Check to see if unit is draining properly.

One more thing, sometimes food or plastic dishware will fall between the spaces in the basket that holds the dishes. these plastics can be burned by the heating element inducing a burning scent during the drying process. always make sure that all plastics are secure before you start the cycle. food can get stuck on this heater element as well causing a burned smell.

Strong smell during sensing cycle

Visually inspect the heating element to make sure there is nothing on it, like plastic residue or something like that. You might also want to clean the dishwasher with vinegar, CLR, or Dishwasher Magic ( ) Hope this helps, APP Tech
