My GE diswasher, Model PDW9980N00SS, S/N AM771925B, almost started a fire. The drier's heating element either overheated or never turned off and melted the platice components in the dishwasher. The plastic lower spray arm and the silverware bin melted. It was discovered because a burning smell was coming into the kitchen. The dishwasher had been turned out about 4-5 hours earlier. Pictures are avaiable of the meltdown.
