Front Glass Door Panel on Jenn-Air JDB1270AWF Dishwasher

Hello, the glass panel that is mounted on the door of the subject Jenn-Air dishwasher is no longer attached to the small brackets (flanges) that hold it on the inside. We have it taped the glass panel to the door so that it won't fall onto the floor.

It appears that the black rubber-like adhesive that is (was) between the glass panel and the small brackets (flanges) has let go. We don't need the metal brackets; we need the black adhesive to reapply the glass panel to the brackets. Can you help identify what the black adhesive is so that we can order it?

    Thank you for your suggestions! We think that liquid nails would be too permanent, so I'm wondering if you can suggest an adhesive that would 1) not react adversely with the white paint on the glass panel 2) would not dissolve the black rubber-like adhesive (which has let go) that's between the glass panel and the small brackets, and 3) would be strong enough to hold the glass panel, which is where the DW handle/pull is located, and which is subject to stress caused by constant opening and closing.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Ok, Harvey, we took your suggestion and got some E-6000 industrial strength craft adhesive from Eclectic Products, Inc. We'll try it tomorrow and I'll let you know how we make out with it. Thank you for your time and suggestions.

Hi again,

You think that liquid nails would be too permanent, so you're wondering if I can suggest an adhesive that would 1) not react adversely with the white paint on the glass panel 2) would not dissolve the black rubber-like adhesive (which has let go) that's between the glass panel and the small brackets, and 3) would be strong enough to hold the glass panel, which is where the DW handle/pull is located, and which is subject to stress caused by constant opening and closing.

Different adhesives are available in diferent parts of the country and they are all subject to proper instalation. So I'm going to sugest some guide lines. 1) You're going to have to do a little leg work. You're going to talk to different people in different hardware stores telling them about your three requirements. You'll be surprised at the varying degrees of knowledge. Don't argue, just take notes. 2) Once you've settled on a product it's time to test it. Find a small piece of glass and aply it to metal useing the adhesive. After drying you can tell if it is satisfactory. If not go back to no.1.
3) Once you're happy with the test find a pair of C-clamps and two blocks of wood. Aply adhesive, then using the wood blocks to protect the glass use the C-clamps on each side. Be carefull not to overtighten. Do this with the door horizontally. Just watch the adhesive, when it starts to squeeze out, stop. Make sure the clamps are aplyed evenly. Be carefull. Good luck.

Harvey

Hi Fairhill,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: It appears that the black rubber-like adhesive that is (was) between the glass panel and the small brackets (flanges) has let go. You don't need the metal brackets; you need the black adhesive to reapply the glass panel to the brackets. Can you help identify what the black adhesive is so that we can order it?

Any good adhesive will work. If you're never going to remove the glass panel then use liquiod nails allowing 24 hrs for drying time. If you might want to remove at a later date then any adhesive that remains plyable will work.

Feel free contact me again!

I have a Jenn Air dishwasher and the door latch mechanism has been "locked" but teh door is in the open position, how do I unlock the mechanism. I have pushed the het button three seconds but this me


This happened to me. After replacing the board for $100, still happened. I messed with it myself... Reach under the counter to where the "catch" is. Mine is white plastic. Mine had a bit of movement side to side (like 3mm). Try sliding it to one side or the other and see if the door will shut. I spent $100 I did not need to spend and hand washed dishes for 6 days waiting for the part! Good luck

The door on my machine won't shut?


Hello

You will need to adjust the dishwasher door latch to fix the door if it will not close. The door latch can come out of alignment from use. Adjusting the latch assembly is a straight forward process on most models of dishwashers. First, remove the securing fasteners for the inner door panel. It is a good idea not to remove the inner door panel completely, just enough that you can access the door latch assembly.

Turn the dishwasher circuit breaker off inside your home electrical panel. Open and close the door and watch where the strike plate makes contact with the door. The strike plate is usually on the front top center of the dishwasher. If the strike plate is out of alignment, it will hit the inside of the door.

Pull the dishwasher out of the counter enough that you can access the strike plate securing Torx screw. You may need to open your dishwasher door and remove the two screws that secure the dishwasher mounting bracket to the bottom of the counter with a Phillips-head screwdriver to pull the dishwasher away from the counter.

Loosen the Torx screw that secures the strike plate to the washer tub with a Torx driver. Adjust the strike plate so the plate will engage the door latch. Retighten the Torx screw and push the dishwasher back under the counter. Secure the brackets to the counter if your dishwasher uses retaining brackets.

Adjust Door Latch

Open the dishwasher door and remove the Torx screws securing the inner door panel to the outer door panel with a Torx driver. The retaining screws are usually around the side edge and top edge of the dishwasher door.

Lift the inner door panel enough that you can loosen the two securing bolts on the door latch with a wrench. You only need to loosen the bolts, not remove them.

Carefully raise the dishwasher door to align the door latch with the strike plate. Hold the door latch with your finger tips when you align the latch. Lower the door and tighten the door latch securing bolts.

Install the inner door panel retaining screws and tighten all screws with the Torx driver. Close the dishwasher door and turn on the circuit breaker.

My dishwasher will not start. I can chose my settings close the door and press start but it will not start.


You have a bad control panel. Here is your part#99003139
  1. Unplug your dishwasher
  2. Unscrew the the screws that run along side the inner door *don't let door drop*
  3. Unplug the ribbon cable and replace the control panel
This would only take 20min to change. Have a great day!

Jenn Aire dishwasher DW861upq leaks


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Jenn Air Dishwasher won't drain out water. I have checked basket and hose for clog


The problem is most likely that there is a chunk of glass or bone etc. in the small drain pump. this is an easy fix. remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher, you will see the drain line which goes through the cabinet wall into the sink drain and at the lower end is attached to a small pump. Disconnect the hose clamp and the hose by the pump then unscrew the little pump from the frame of the dishwasher so u can look in it. Remove the blockage. Now reassemble everything and u will be back up and running

KITCHENAID DISHWASHER DOOR PANEL


www.applianceart.com has many options for you to choose from. They sell many different panels to put on your dishwasher. If you call them (678-727-4747 x32) they can also send you a metal stainless plate that is easily installed. I think the metal ones are around $99.99 and the other options are $39.99

disassemble front door to get to the latch. Check if the latch is properly in place, sometimes the metal cylinder that hold it in place, slips out of position.
