Question about Dishwashers
Firstly, you should stop using - or trying to use - the washer. Any burning smell indicates something is overheating and something may be melting. Further use of the washer will only result in further damage and more expense to repair.
Secondly, it's difficult to assist you without knowing the brand and model number of the dishwasher and the following details:
1. Is the burning smell present at all times during the wash? At what point in the wash cycle do you first notice the burning smell?
2. Is water circulating inside the washer - can you hear it spraying?
3. Will the washer drain manually if you press (and possibly hold) the cancel / drain / reset button?
Please reply to me with the brand and model number and the answers to the above questions by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.
