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

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.

SOURCE: Front Glass Door Panel on Jenn-Air JDB1270AWF Dishwasher

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

SOURCE: jenn-air 1250 AWP won't start- lights don't come on

I am going to say it sounds like either bad connections on the controller circuit board, or a failing controller.

I can't find you model on the JennAir site not on SearsPartsDirect, so can't help you much further. If you want to confirm your model number, then I'll look deeper.

My dishwasher runs but door is in locked position. it will now run with door open and the door wont close/lock


It sounds like your door latch got tripped into the closed position (even though your door is open). You MIGHT be able to use a screwdriver or some tool to be able to pull the latch lever back out to the open position, but it might also be necessary to take the door apart to get to the latch to be able to reset it. The real problem is that if it happened before, it will probably happen again. So the real solution is to replace the latch assembly.

The soap dispenser at times does not open during the wash cycle. When the cycle is complete and the front door is opened the soap dispenser is either stil closed or at time is open with the soap still...


Check the way you're loading your dishwasher. Sometimes large plates or baking pans can block the door of the dispenser. The latch unlocks but because the door is blocked, the detergent can't get out. Once you open the main door, the dispenser door may pop open and looks as if it has been in the fully opened position when it was actually held in place by that large utensil!Cutting boards are major blockers as well.

My car door does not close,door lock is jamb


Check the latch assembly where the door closes. If the latch claw is closed it won't latch. Make sure the door is unlocked. Insert a screwdriver into the middle of the claw (circular opening where the striker latches). Open the door handle from inside or outside and pull sideways on the latch it should pop open. If it doesn't then the lock mechanism is in the lock position. Remove door panel follow lock rod to the latch and manually try to move the lever to the unlock position. If all fails you probably will need a new latch assembly.

Dish washer will not latch


Latch is locked, but the door is open, panel will not light up. Tried to close door after loading, wouldn't close, water started running, tried to figure out what was wrong, something in the way, etc, but nothing. Then water sprayed all over, started pushing buttons, and finally it quit, now latch is locked, but the door is open.

Trouble reinstalling door for Jenn-Air PRG3010


There is a very small clip at the bottom of the door hinge which in essence locks the door open if it is in place. You need to make sure that clip is in an "open" position to accept the door.

I finally got my oven to work properly by shutting off the breaker and resetting the main clock. Cured the always locked problem as well as the beep twice when self cleaning.

Have to repeat this every few months since the problem seems to come back.
