dishwasher was not running but the inside smelled warm like after dishes ran a cycle. Heater coil not hot. Upper right side of door panel is warm to touch, inside and outside. When I turned off circuit breaker to the dishwasher it cools off. Is it the electronics getting hot for some reason?
ANSWER Mike, The warm control panel, would be a "normal" occurrence. As long as the door is closed and latched shut, there is voltag supplied to the control board, and certain components will be "active" and can produce a warm feeling on the panel and door assembly(s). With the warm control board area, the door switches and fuse, should be fine, so the issue should be in the user interface 3380893 or control board 8531292. We'll send you some information, so you can program a test mode, and check the operation of the dishwasher. Thanks
