Question about Jenn-Air JDB6510 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Jenn - Air Model DW 730W. I'm experiencing a problem switching the machine On and then keeping it on. It seems like the switch is not quite engaging. When it does I have to stuff something under the latch to "hold" it in the On position. Any thoughts ?
Thanks in Advance.
It could be as simple as the mounting tabs being too tight up against the bottom of the countertop. You might need to loosen the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in place against the underside of the countertop, until the latch and strike plate engage.
It might be that the countertop is interferring with the latch or that the door edge doesn't have enough clearance to properly close and engage the latching tab.
If you can't get the latch to engage, it might be that it got bent slightly in the removal and reinstallation. A simple way to confirm this would be to pull the dishwasher out about 4-6" from the cabinet and see if the catch and latching tab line up and engage. If they do, then you need to make sure there is enough clearance around the cabinet edges and at the underside of the countertop. If it doesn't engage, then it is more likely that the tab (male part) needs to be adjusted slightly to allow for proper engagement. Make small adjustments (bending carefully up or down until it goes into the latch without binding.
You should be able to get this lined up with a little effort and have things working again.
Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

Testimonial: "The advice got the door moving better, but I appears that the latch is broken and will have to be replaced."
i had the exact same issue. it's a broken latch mechanism, and is a fairly common problem.
i bought the part at my local repair shop for $45 (you can find it online for $30). it literally took 10 minutes.
you need to right size bit to remove the 10 bolts on the interior of the door. once you have those out, the latch slides right out of the top. there are 2 electrical connectors (careful - you can get a shock. disconnect the 2 connectors, reconnect to the new one, and zip your 10 bolts back in. super easy

I think it is the seals...even though they look good they can be compressed and loose the eleasticity to swell and seal....
