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
