Yesterday I walked downstairs after my dishwasher was running for a while (about an hour) and noticed a electric burning smell everywhere in the kitchen, especially around the dishwasher. Turned it off immediately.
I opened it up today and looked inside. Control panel looks fine with no burn marks. However in the door panel, I found the wires had melted the plastic insulation and stuck to it, in two places. Also the electric tape which was wound around the wires was really gooey.... I'm guessing the adhesive melted.
The problem seems to be exactly the same as described in a thread by TomMG on May 17, 2018, in this forum, which was never resolved. Same model number too.
