A new GE Dishwasher turns the heat element on by its self. The first time we unplugged it and called the service as it was under warrenty. They replaced a module in the door and said it should be fine. Two nights later it turned on again and I smelled something like some one was cooking at 4:00 AM. I got up to check and the dishwasher had turned on again and was hot enough to melt a nylon cutting board that was on the bottom rack. I unplugged the washer and called the GE service department. They are sending a service man out to check what went wrong. If we had not been here I am afraid that it would have caused a fire.
