My GE Cafe Dishwasher twice dangerously overheated:

1. THe first time after a washing cycle - the heater DID NOT TURN OFF AND THE PLASTIC ITEMS INSIDE MELTED BECAUSE SO HOT _ I AM GUESSING OVER 400 Degrees - over 5 hours!!! So Dangerous...

2. I TUrned off and opened the door. Left everything inside to cool off.

3. I closed the door and the dishwasher went automatically into a heat cycle and melted the dishwasher structure (.e.g. the boxes that hold silverware!!!) inside as well as everything AGAIN. 40

NOT ONLY IS THIS A HUGE FIRE HAZARD BUT THE FUMES FROM THE MELTING PLASTIC ARE A HUGE HAZARD
