Question about Dishwashers
If it is INSIDE the unit - the heater element may have some plastic on it from a load - or like cellophane wrapper.
If external - only the motor/wiring is underneath.
If it is coming from the door - the timer/wiring may be at fault.
It's almost impossible to diagnose smoke without finding the source.

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
