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?

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.

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.

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.
