Above is a service manual, so you can troubleshoot and identify your problem.
However, in my professional opinion, I think, you would be best to call a professional.

When a electric water heater smoking and it gits turned off at the breaker box will there be a chemical smell after


No. A water heater is a sealed system it needs to be addressed for the original problem. High sulfur content has been a complaint as far as smell,and I remove the anode and replace with a brass plug because of. Shallow wells in the area largest complaints.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher trips the 60-amp main breaker but not 20-amp.


Its possible that there may be load on that circuit from other appliances. Had an issue myself with stove and laptop on same circuit.
Check other appliance attached to the 60amp circuit (microwave, stove, kettle etc)

During self-cleaning cycle we heard a loud pop and it tripped the breaker. Oven and stovetop (ceremic) still work but we smell the same smell from that cleaning cycle like electrical burning? Is there any...


If any appliance trippes the breaker there is a problem that has to be looked into, no appliance should trip MCBs or RCBs (trips), ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE REMOVING ANY PANELS
A visual inspection of the rear is required, also the electrical mains connections. Look into this do not use the appliance until you have resolved the problem, it may turn out an amount of food had been stuck beside one of the heating elements, and causing a smell, better to be safe.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.

My dishwasher smells of burning and it tripped the electric


Hi,
There are couple of things it could be...the most likely is that the motor has gone bad...they will smoke first and then trip the breaker...if you get under the dishwasher you will be able to follow your nose right to the motor is that is the problem...
The other possibility would be that the heating element went bad and melted something before it shorted and tripped the breaker...that to your should be able to see rather easily in the bottom of your dishwasher...
At either rate you should be able to smell the problem or see the burn marks...

Dryer trips circuit breaker smell almost like something burning coming from dryer


In order to trip a circuit breaker, there is almost for sure, a dead short to ground. Takes quite a bit to trip a breaker. The smell is most likely something electrical burning. Stop resetting the breaker and have it checked out. Continous resetting and tripping can cause more damage. The breaker is doing it's job.

Dryer keeps tripping breaker. slight burning


The heating element is shorted. This is an electric dryer, right? replace the heating element. Make damn sure it's un-plugged when you work on it!

Electrical Burning smell when agitating, trips breaker.


Send your complete model number, just to make sure we are working on same washer.
First check the lid latch switch by unplugging washer first and remove the font panel. Look up to where the switch is mounted. I am not positive that is your [problem but know there has been many problem with that switch. It will begin to melt ad cause the power to motor to be lost in a bad connection.

Hoover HDC7FM condensor dryer starts then cuts out


Open the dryer door (right after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.
