I have a GE Profile Dishwasher. It has a delay cycle feature of up to 8 hours. I was leaving for greater than 8 hours so I set the feature for 8 hours to start. When I returned, the dishwasher did not turn on as expected. I opened the front door and noticed the dishwasher did not cycle. I closed the door then pushed the start button to start the process. About 5 minutes into the cycle I noticed smoke coming from the top of the dishwasher. I opened the front door to the dishwasher, to stop the cycle. I touched the front of the door and could feel it was hot. So I went and opened the inside panel of the door, removed the panel to try and keep the fire contained. I was able to contain the fire. The circuit board and the electrical connection to the circuit board were melted. I removed the connector to the circuit board (it was melted to the board) and shut the power off to the appliance.
