About 2 weeks ago we had some friends over the dishwasher was running I stepped into the kitchen to get some things and saw a small haze thru the air it smelled like something was burning. I called my husband and a friend came in they smelled it to we checked all over the house and the smell was coming from the dishwasher area. We turned the dishwasher off thinking the unit was done as it had not been drying the dishes completely it was in the house when we bought the home. I did not use it again until trying to yesterday. I tried to restart it to drain the water in the base but it would not turn on. So I drove to town and purchased a new dishwasher. Upon removing the bosch dishwasher the electric lines going in are burnt about 3 to 4 inches up. My husband went downstairs and did find the breaker was popped. Thank god, we were out of town for a weekend and if that breaker had not popped we could have lost our home and pets. Today I looked online for recall or issues and found some dishwashers had been recalled for the same problem. My model number is not on the list.

Comment from BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION 4/6/2012
The report states that the consumer saw that the power wires going in were burnt. The power wires are not supplied with the dishwasher and their connections are done by the installer. The recall of some Bosch dishwashers did not involve power wiring issues.
