While watching TV, heard a strange noise coming from the dishwasher. Upon investigation, a lot of smoke, a few flames, and a very bad plastic smell was emanating from the top of the dishwasher. Smoke began dissipating after a few minutes. Windows were opened. Breaker was turned off so that dishwasher could be unplugged safely (husband is an electrical engineer). Dishwasher was moved to the basement where husband began further investigation. Control unit was burned. Web research revealed that the part has been recalled. Bosch was called. Somebody from the senior staff should call me back on the next business day. Interested to see how Bosch will make good on this after the dishwasher caught fire.

Comment from BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION 8/30/2012
The dishwasher that is the subject of this report is one of those that was recalled (09-100) and the issue was that which caused the recall. All issues were resolved to the consumer's satisfaction.
