If you have a belt on this machine, I would change it. If the tub bearings are worn, then the motor will spin the belt faster then the tub/drum can turn causing burning. Worn pump or tub bearings can also cause this smell. Make sure pump is clean and tight.

    Thank you, Minnesota fisherman,

    I have no idea yet, but have called a repairman rather than buying a new machine.
    There is a post holiday wait to get a good repairman in my area.
    Thank you for contributing with infromation on my dishwasher.

My kenmore elite calypso will not do final spin.flashes LD. I replace the pump as was suggested,still did not fix froblem


Hello Alex;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.


After review of your washer components, there is a strong possibility that you have a bad electronic control board. You have two control boards, one is for the motor and one for the other functions.

25306051-b3edjqs4ufvbcqfi2v1m52kl-2-0.jpg

Washer electronic control board for Kenmore Elite Washer model #11021062001 Electronic control board 8571359 is the circuit board that manages the washer's functions, such as filling, washing, draining and spinning. It sends voltage to the drive motor and other electro-mechanical component.

Cost: $218.00

If you elect to replace the board make sure you ground yourself by rubbing your hands on something that is bare steel. Static electricity will knock a board out.

All appliances with electric control boards should have a surge protector. You can purchase a wall socket surge protector for $20-25.00. It is a good investment considering how expensive control boards are.

Rule of thumb; "If the unit is either 7 years old or the cost of repair is 1/3 or more of the original price, purchase a new unit.

Consider it purchasing a new unit, stripping your existing unit for parts to sell on e-bay. You will make a little money and save others expensive parts cost.

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.

My 18 month old kenmore elite oasis quiet pak 2 gas dryer smells as if there were a fire in it!!!!  and ironically, when i noticed the smell i also saw water around the base of the kenmore elite oasis top...


Hello plz make sure the gas burner does not have any lint build up on burner assembly inside the machine / plz clean.That usually causes a burnt smell. If there is no error codes on the display and the machines is operating fine you are chasing a ghost. If there is a pump or motor over load an error code should come up on the display.
