Just noticed that a burning smell when opening the dishwasher to put in a dirty cup. The washer was part way through programme with water in the bottom. I noticed that part of the element near the first securing clip was literally red with heat like a full on element in a cooker. I turned it off. I reckon element will need changed. The washer is 17 years old but has performed faultlessly to date virtually every day. I acquired a secondhand element many years ago - just in case. The dishwasher is of the integrated type - I do not know the model number yet. Will I have to extract the beast from its lair and all the hassle that entails or will I be able to remove the element from its clips, screw attachment and wiring by removing the kitchen kickboard?
