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.

If you need further help - Just ask.

Thanks!

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

Sounds like the vent is clogged with lint. You should have the vent cleaned once a year to keep the appliance operating properly. Also, make sure there are no kinks in the vent line.
Good luck!

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.
