Jenn_air model #JD8910AWS won't drain

My Jenn-air dishwasher model #JD8910AWS won't drain. The motor recently burn and I replaced it and now it will star the wash cycle but when it tries to drain the motor will only start and stop over and over. I assume this is why the original motor burnt. Have you any idea what this problem is? Thanks George

Re: jenn_air model #JD8910AWS won't drain

I was having the following symptoms: If I hit the drain button, it would stay at 2 minutes and just click on and off. If I hit the rinse button, it would rinse all 9 minutes OK. It would always stick in the middle of a full cycle and just start clicking.
I just fixed it. I shut off the circuit breaker, opened the door up (all torx screws from inside of door) to get the the upper controls. One lead (of two) of a capacitor (square blue component) had actually worked itself out of the control board. I cleaned it up and resoldered it in. All better now - for now.

Re: jenn_air model #JD8910AWS won't drain

Since you already replaced the motor, it sound like a pump issue. The pump is attached to the motor and forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. Look if the pump's impeller (a round plastic fan blade-type of device) spins around. In case it doesn't spin, look if it doesn't blocked or stuck from any other reason. Good luck!

Jenn-air dishwasher jdb1090aws wont drain


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

Jenn Air dishwasher leaking

the emptying valve is underneath in the middle normally and it is what the drain hose connects to on the dishwasher. The drain hose itself is connecting with either a c clamp or hose clamp, check to make sure it is tightened all the way. Also do you have an idea of what part of the dishwasher the leak is coming from? If it is not the drain valve, then check to make sure it is not leaking from the door itself, as the door just has a rubber gasket that seals it and it might be that the gasket is bad. If it's not the door and not the drain valve, it could then be coming from the drainage pump or the motor for the dishwasher, which means the seal is broken and the motor or pump would need replaced. If you are unsure of how to do so then i would contact a repair technician to fix it for you.
