Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB8910 Built-in Dishwasher
Hello, Without warning the control pannel on our Jenn Air dishwasher would not light up or respond almost like the unit was unpluged. After checking breaker and power outlet to dishwasher we decided to pull the unit out and look around for a reset switch which did not exist. I checked the float which moved freely, after finding no reset button and wiggling the connections around I gave up, banged on the motor a few times and put everything back in place. My wife leisurly walks by and presses wash on the pannel, IT WORKED! So I decide not to waste the electricity running a test cycle because it worked flawsley prior to the pannel porblem. Hours later we loaded it, filled the soap and was suprised to find the pannel would not light up or respond just as before. Please HELP !

usually if the motor is not kicking in then it is a blocked/seized wash motor or a broken wire somewhere from the timer to the motor. either will mean a stripdown. try checking out the motor first.

no real reset, nut you can check for power leading to the unit, make sure the bnreaker hasnt tripped , and next if you remove the bottom acees panel you lfind a box to the right . the electrical conne\ction is made behind ther make sure the connection hasnt shaken itself loose.CAUTION LIVE WIRES BEHIND THAT COVER"

yes somthing /pice of somthing has gotten into the works;usually its a chunk of glass or small pice of plastic.no eazy way to fix.youl have to drain and go from the top down.[removing wash impeller pump cover and keep going down each time taking parts off and looking for some small hard somthing.im afraid youl end up going all the way down to the chopper/food grinder.leave the screws in the parts you take off so wont get mixed up.take your time.ive done it hundreds off times i know you can pull it off ,once.you can do it.ps you can let it run like that thru some loads to see if will grind up or clean its self out.knowing what i know i would have no problem trying that on my dish washer.and have done it a few times.hope that helps God bless,tom

I think it is the seals...even though they look good they can be compressed and loose the eleasticity to swell and seal....
Here is a tip that I wrote about leaking dishwashers

SOURCE: After interrupting a wash cycle
It is possible that by opening the door mid cycle, the door switch mechanism has got disengaged. Refer item 11 in this diagram and expose it by taking out the panels around. Then tape it in depressed position and press start button to see if it engages.
If ok then put panel back and readjust the door latch mechanism to make sure the switch engages.
Hope this helps. Please post a comment on what you found. Please rate this solution if it works.
