In 2007, we purchased a GE Dishwasher with our [REDACTED] home. The model no. is GSD3300N00BB and the serial no. is HM828832B. After using the dishwasher, on at least one occassion there was smoke that could be seen coming out of the top of the dishwasher. When we opened the dishwasher, the heating element was burning and there did not seem to be water running to cool it off. After that point, we decided to never run the dishwasher when we were not home since it seemed like a potential fire hazard. The dishwasher has done this on at least 4-5 occasions. It generally seems to happen on the pot and pan cycle so we try not to use that cycle. We are currently searching for a replacement dishwasher since we have a young child and the potential for fire is not worth the risk to our son. I just wanted to make sure that I reported the problem we were having in case others were experiencing similar problems.
