Question about Dishwashers
Secure power to dishwasher at the breaker box by shutting off breaker. Some models
of Hotpoint dishwashers were recalled for electrical problems. The number for the model
and serial are inside the door on the left. You can Google for recall information.
I have run across 2 of the new dishwashers with the "square" motor pumps with bad
castings in the fan section which broke off and lodged in the motor itself.
On some models the drain solenoid will burn out and produce a nasty smell.
You can check underneath with the power off to see if the triangle shaped control
arm moves freely. You can also inspect the motor to see if it has a broken vane.
If you have aluminum wiring and the dishwasher was connected to it, often the wires
will work loose from vibration and literally burn a hole through the wire nuts themselves.
It would be located inside the connection box (Power off first before checking).
I do not recommend attaching aluminum wiring to a dishwasher for this reason.
Hope this helps locating the problem.
