My GE Triton GSD5630D00WW is Not washing during wash cycle. During wash cycle, the pump motor turns very slowly and warms up to the point of starting producing warm electrical smell and nearing the I'm going to burn up and cause a fire smell. Water will fill and pump out.

Sounds like your dishwasher is a prime candidate for the replacement pump and motor kit: http://www.repaircli...26X10013/820985

The cost for the parts are about 25% of the cost of a new dishwasher. Given that the baskets are nearing end of life, do you recommend replacement? If you do, and since new dishwashers are doo-d0o you duggest one brand or manufacturer over another? Or just look for the appliance with the highest projected electricity usage(might indicate a larger motor or more heating elements)?
Thanks in advance.

If it were mine, I'd repair that dishwasher you have even if it was going to cost as much as a new one. Yes, I hate the new dishwashers that much.
And just a note: If you take it all apart, make sure you don't loose the screws that came from the top of the access panel. If you put a longer screw in there you'll put holes in the plastic tub so be sure the same ones go back where they came from.

Replacing is a dishwasher is not a plug n' chug event. So either you'll do the R&R or you'll hire someone to. There's that bit of hassle or "Aggradollars" to figure into the cost picture.
