dishwasher smoking

Any appliance that starts smoking would be cause for concern. If you can add the model number of your dishwasher to this thread it will help the expert provide a better answer, but until then I did locate and add another expert post to help you find a way to turn off without the breaker. If you need to schedule a repair, I attached the Sears Home Services link and if you would like to price new dishwashers, you can check the Sears.com link below. Hope this information is of help.

my lawnmower is smoking
May 10th, 2010

Without a model number for your mower, we can only offer some general tips. Here are some suggestions that may help:

Bad fuel (or water in the fuel) can cause the engine to smoke. Try emptying the gas tank and filling it with fresh gas. This may eliminate the smoke (often a white color of smoke).

If the oil has not been changed in a while, try changing the oil in the engine. Make sure that the oil is not overfilled. Overfilling the engine with oil can cause it to smoke (often will be blue smoke).

Check the air filter on your engine. A dirty air filter can cause the engine to smoke in some situations.

The engine could have worn rings or other serious problems that would cause it to smoke. These types of problems would normally require a service technician for repair. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it:

Sears Home Services

.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your lawnmower.

A smoking lawn mower is not safe to drive around at all, and I could see why you would want this problem fixed soon. I have researched your question here at Manage My Life and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I have attached the link below.

washer smoking WTW6700TW1
September 27th, 2013

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on the noise and the "smoke", I suspect the drive shaft, drive shaft bearings and tub seal will need to be replaced. There is bearing replacement kit (

W10435302

) which includes the drive shaft, bearings, nut, seals, grease, adhesive and instructions. This kit can only be ordered by the service technician. It also requires a special tool which is not included. This is why a service technician must order and install the kit.

In order to get the parts to repair your washer will require a service technician to order and make the repairs.  

To have a service technician fix this problem, you can schedule service through this link: 

Sears Home Services.
