Why does my dishwasher smell like something is burning?

My Whirlpool dishwasher (Model GU2700XTSQ1) smells like something is burning. The odor is not present in the tub when you open the door, so I'm pretty sure it is not leftover residue from something on the heating element. I cannot locate the source of the smell and unfortunately since I have a cold I can't tell whether the smell is electrical or rubber/plastic. I kicked a breaker a few minutes ago.
