Re: Dishwasher Non functioning
Disconnect power immediately! Several brands of dishwashers have had safety recalls over the past few years with bad switches or the rinse aid liquid leaking inside doors or inner insulation reacting with the wirering's insulation, in some cases causing fires. If you google dishwasher recall you will see GE, Maytag, Whirlpool/ Kenmore...... When you search or enter model numbers make sure you use complete model and serial numbers. If you leave off a letter or get one wrong the sites might tell you your model is not involved in the recall. I wish I was on my work computer now,... I'd include some photos of dishwashers which I serviced which did burn. Please leave a comment with your model and serial number.

Make sure there isn't any plastic on the heating element. Also check to see if there is any evidence of previously melted plastic. If it smells like plastic burning & you aren't using any heated options, cut the power & call for service.
Hi If noise starts within one minute of start of program then you most likely have debris in drain pump. Under filter you will find non return valve remove valve this will expose drain pump impeller. with non return valve removed run program for 30 seconds refit valve and test. More in depth instructions available in user handbook.
If noise occurs within first minute of starting program, then the is most likely something in the drain pump. Remove filter, On left of sump you will see a non return valve with a metal clip keeping it in place push clip ti centre of sump. remove non return valve and rotate impeller. Start a program, after 60 sec stop program, (debris will have been thrown out of pump.) re-assemble and test. More in depth instructions are in user manual under problem solving
If the smoke was coming from inside the dishwasher... A common problem is a plastic item , utensil etc has fallen down onto the heating element. During the drying cycle this could possibly melt the plastic and generate some smoke.
It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.
ok start the washer after it fills and starts washing open the door again and turn the dial to drain shut the door see if it drains if it does then open the door and turn it to heated dry shut the door and get you a small glass of warm water let it sit in heated dry for about 3 minutes open the door and pour the water on the heating element and let me know if it sizzles
is your dishwasher less than a year old? if so you need to call bosch and have all the gaskets replaced. they tried a new chemical to make the gasket but now have found that after the dry cycle the gaskets put off a strange odor like your discribing. ive changed several gaskets because of this
