Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
When my dishwasher is on the dry cycle It smells like it is getting hot. Maybe wire burning?
ANSWER Judith, When the dishwasher is on a heated dry selection, it could produce a slight odor, especially if we have deposits developping on the heater. I wouldn't suspect a burnt wire at this point, but you would want to remove the lower access panel, turn the power off, and check the wiring connections at the junction box, and heaterassembly. A proper model number would have been a great help. Thanks and Good Luck
