The terminals on the control board can burn due to the connection between the male and female terminals making poor contact. Over time it will overheat and the terminal will burn. You can try to sand the terminal down and replace the wire harness, but if that doesn't work you'll need to replace both the control board and the wiring harness for the dishwasher if you wanted to fix the issue.
