    Melted plastic on dishwasher heating element 22nd Sep 06 at 3:23 PM
    I accidently melted a plastic fork and cat bowl in my dishwasher and there has been melted plastic on the heating element.

    I got all visible plastic off of the heating element, but whenever i use it (and it gets to the drying bit" it makes my whole kitchen smell of melting plastic.....

    i am getting quite worried about it and am not sure whether it will eventally burn off and the smell will go away or if i should get someone to look at it!

    any advice appreciated!
