The dishwasher is smoking....

Yes, there is smoke pouring out of the thing.
The control panel is too hot to touch.
I opened it and it is now slowly cooling down.
All windows and doors open.
Went to the web.
Well, howdy. This happens ALL the time!
Called The Engineer and asked him if I should
turn off power to the kitchen?
Thank god I had not left the house as today is
a non-tutoring day.

So.....

Apparently this is a huge problem - there is even a Facebook page about it and class action suit. IF I buy another one it will not be a Whirlpool.

GE - will make note of that.

Yikes. i'd never heard of such a thing, and, you'd think, if there was a Facebook page about this issue, Whirlpool might wanna let owners of those machines know?

PS We have a GE, too.
