Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17483 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

This just happened to our Kenmore Elite -- just as I was about to go to bed I smelled fumes and went downstairs to our kitchen and saw thick smoke and smelled awful fumes. I will contact Sears/Whirlpool tomorrow -- but I am nervous about getting this repaired. What if this happens again? I was fortunate that I had not gone to sleep.

You WERE VERY LUCKY, indeed. Thank goodness.
With a problem that indeed causes fire and burning, I ,myself wouldn't get it repaired, if i was in a position to repair or replace, i would replace with a nice new one, with a warranty, and, also, it is less likely to have a repeat of what has happened due to the newer technology.
Nothing that "Smells" in the electrical world is cheap...
also if you do anything get a "Quote" first before you start any repair.

Burning chemical smell coming from the gas dryer


Hi,
You first thought was probably the correct one...the fumes from the new paint may take a few days to disspate enough not to react with the heat of the dryer...I would give it a few dyas to clear before looking any further...

have you tried lower spin speeds? I found with heavy items such as towels and jeans it is best to lower the spin speed. also washing like heavy items on a certain wash cycle is best - i.e. towels on bluky/bedding.

hope that helps.

Kenmore Elite 17483 Dishwasher Caught Fire!


Had the exact same problem (Control panel burning up, sparking, and smoking during wash cycle) last night with our Kenmore Elite DW model 665.16293400 purchased Nov. 2004. I have reported it to the CPSC and www.kitchenaidfire.com and will be contacting Sears first thing tomorrow. It is outrageous that this problem is apparently so widespread with nothing being done about it! I have no doubt my kitchen would have been in flames if I had not been sitting right here to shut off power to the D/W.

Smoking Kenmore


Hello oliver909
Welcome,

You said,Smoke is coming out of the back of my gas Kenmore oven. Oven is clean - no spills/debris. Ran clean cycle and broiler did not smoke. Warmer drawer at bottom, so nothing spilled there. Soon as you turn it on, downstairs is full of smoke. Sometimes after preheat goes off, smoke clears and its fine. But I'm afraid to use it because last time I saw a flame inside.

If your afraid to use it, do not hesitate to call service. Nobody wants a fire!
