Intermittent On/Off Switch/Latch problem. Model DW 730

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.

This is not a JDB6510 Model. Check the inside label when you open the door.

SOURCE: Jenn Air dishwasher door won't close

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!

SOURCE: Jenn Air dishwasher door won't close

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

Smeg dish washer wont stop even when the door is opened,


I never heard of a smeg DW but you can bet the door interlock is hung up in some way. Ususally its micro switches on the latch assy. Then again, could be a bad relay on the control board. I would dis connect the switch first and see what happens. The way I would do that is disconnect power at your circuit box and dis connect the switch, tape off the wire, latch the door and return power. Bet it doesn't run. Most likely the switch assy. Would help to know the right brand name tho...

Jenn air dishwasher model JDB3610AWX has no power at the control board please help


Hello,
Their are a couple possiblities that could be causing that;
1) the connections where the house wiring connects to the dishwasher in of the junction box has burnt, the circuit breaker will very likely be on but the bad/burnt connection wont send power to control.

2) one or both of the door switches on the latch asm. are bad,to check those use a meter set to a low ohms setting and check for ZERO ohms when the door is closed,to check those TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER remove wires from switch(s) and place one meter lead on each terminal

I hope this will help you to figure out why your dishwasher won't come on,

Jenn-air dishwasher jdb1090aws wont drain


Hi,

Most common issue on this model is the drain motor itself. More times then not it gets clogged with debris. Pull the unit out and remove the three screws that mount the pump to the bottom of the dw.

take the hoses off and clean the drain motor out. It will fix this issue I have seen it more times then you could imagine. Good luck with your repair friend

DOES JENN AIR HAVE A REST BUTTON, MY DISHWASHER WONT START. MODEL NUMBER JDB4000AWS


first of all if its a built in dishwasher under counter by the sink,check for a switch as you may have inadvertentally switched this switch off or unknowingly bumped it with something under the sink,then if it has power to the unit,there is a built in fuse on the control board

Will not start after closing door, can select but does nothing when you push start. Acts if it is a sensor in the handle/latch assembly.


Here is a post I just sent to someone having similar issues. I copied just part of my solution. Hope it is helpful.

That was not to total solution in our case. I ended up ordering and replacing the door switch (a black plastic piece that is what the metal latch on the machine is supposed to "hook" into.
Replacing it is fairly simple. I did shut the power off for this. This part is replaced by taking off your face plate which is secured bu screws inside of your DW door around the edge. You will see 4 screws to remove and it "snaps" out. At this point you can see the working relationship with the latch, the switch and the contacts on the switch that the door latch (metal part coming out of the top of the DW) after replacing this...try the process again and hopefully your issue will be solved. I had to remove my latch and bend it back to the original shape and mess around with a slight bend to make it latch and hit the contacts in the door latch.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Jenn air jdb8910 does nothing


Had a similar problem with mine a few weeks ago. It was intermittent in not working on delay. My first thought was that the close switch was not working. Upon disassembling the door, and fiddling with the switch, I heard some sizzling on one of the circuit boards. A little more digging revealed some cold solder joints on a couple of board mounted relays.

I removed the board, re-soldered the loose relays, and everything has worked fine since.

Jenn air diswasher mod # JDB1100AWS


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.

Won'r run unless I push the door


Probably a broken latch assembly.. UNPLUG UNIT!! Remove inner door panel to access. Also check for broken tabs on onside of console where latch assembly rests.
