Upon normal operation, dishwasher began to emit burning odor. Once the door was opened, the plastic dinnerware carriage, plastic washer arm on bottom of unit and several other plastic elements we're completely melted. The metal tub was burning hot and could not be touched. GE's recall is one model letter off. They state only the plastic tub units have this problem and not the stainless steel. This unit scorched the surrounding wood cabinet...serious fire hazard.
