Customer Question

I have a MAytag dishwasher model dwu8830/dwc8330. I was running the dishwasher when I noticed a smoke, not steam, coming out of the dishwasher and a slight burning smell. I turned the knob around and turned off the dishwasher. I have let is sit for the past few hours and tried to restart it but I can not get it start. What can be done?

was this smoke comming from underneath or from the control panel?
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
if the smoke was comming from underneath you may have a bad motor or motor relay, shown here, Part 738292you may have a bad wire going to this also , shut the breaker off and remove the front kick panel under the door and see if there are any burnt wires or if the relay is burnt, thanks Bryan
