Hello everybody.

Yesterday I heard a loud BANG and my second-hand dishwasher stopped working in a cloud of white smoke. The breaker tripped.

Today I dismantled it and found that - thankfully - it's just the condenser fitted in the mains connector. It has leaked and it short circued the mains - BTW, I cannot find a mains assembly for my model, can I just get another that is supposed to be for another bosch? They look like the same. Fifth picture from left.

I am going to replace it shortly.

But now that my dishwasher is open, is there any maintenance I can do? It is incredibly hard to service - no experience on dishwasher though - if the main pump had gone I wouldn't know how to replace it without dismantle the entire unit.

But the dishwasher has always been a bit smelly and I saw some dirt inside what a website calls "heat exchanger" that maybe needs some attention? Attached a picture, first and second from left.

Also, I can see some leak from a brown thing on top which I ignore the purpose. Third and fourth picture from left.

I also have some new softener resins that may be good for replacing the existing ones, but - really - I do not have any idea how to access the bottom of the unit, it seems not so easy to do.

Anything else I can have a look into? I am quite good at DIY, my field is just very different!

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I can answer one of my questions myself: the brown thing on top of the appliance is just a box filled up with sand - for noise purpose I guess! :)

Well, I've got a new mains cable and the dishwasher is up and running!

Thanks
