Question about Jenn-Air JDB6510 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Motor spinning? Arms not turning.....

I just typed out my question and guess I did something wrong and it disappeared, if it shows up twice, sorry. Anyway, my arms don't spin and they aren't clogged. The dw fills up but that is it, it will drain ok too. I saw it mentioned somewhere about trying to move the motor with a screwdriver but can't find it now. Do I have to take it apart to find it? If so, I will let the landlord know. Thanks for any help, Anita

    It just makes a humming noise

  • Marisa1105 Apr 09, 2008

    Like the previous person...the jenair fills up with water without any problem...I hear it humming, but the arms are not moving and water is n ot being sprayed in the unit. I know this because the dishes are dirty and the dishwashing soap is clumped. THe heating unit is getting very hot, I presume because it is not getting the water it needs.

    THe water is drained without a problem. Thanks.

    This is exactly what my Jenn-Air ADB1100 is doing, but honestly the Solution provided is of little assistance. If someone has a recommendation that they have tried and worked, please let me know

When the dishwasher fills can you hear the wash motor does it make a humming noise if so it may be blocked if it makes a rattling noise the impellor may have broken off. I dont recommend sticking a screw driver in it from behind you may damage the windings.

there is not enough spring travel on the valves The rockers used are incorrect for the cam used and the lift of the cam is making the rocker push the valve too far down and is binding up the spring. You may have something else wrong like extra spacers under the valve springs , valve guides not in far enough valve spring retainers not correctly positioned or wrong inner spring that is binding up. Turn the cam over carefully and see it the distance in the spring coils disappears before fully open the valve.

R1200GS - Starter does kick in, turns the enjin a few times and then seems like it slips and the starter motor turns freely.

Your starter bendix possibly needs cleaning. Unfortunately these are sealed units and can only be dismantled and re-assembled with specialized equipment. They can be purchased loose.

Have a look here: Starting

Our Nelson tractor sprinkler is going backwards! How do we correct this?

You need to aim the rotary arms in the opposite direction. If the spray pattern is spinning clockwise, then you need to make it spin counter-clockwise or vice-versa. You do this by adjusting each of the 2 arms 180 degrees so that the jet stream spurts right instead of left (or left instead of right). Remember, the spray arms are connected to a gear box, and the gear box turns the wheels. Your wheels are moving in the wrong direction because the gears are moving in the wrong direction because the spray arms are spinning in the wrong direction because they are aimed in the wrong direction.

LG LDS5811WW Low pressure out of spray arms

On the LG LDF xxxx dishwasher family, the Vario feature uses a motor/check valve to switch between "full power" cleaning from _either_ the lower or the upper spray arms, never at the same time. So, not seeing the upper arm spin during the lower arm spinning is standard operating procedure.

But back to your problem. Step one would be to remove the filter assembly again and make certain that there is nothing (debris, broken glass) blocking the white areas where the check valve rotates to switch between upper/lower spray arms. A blockage there ~could~ cause impotent spraying/cleaning.

If there is no blockage and the impeller remains in good shape, suspect a failing wash pump motor. Try to isolate the noise to that motor.

Watch for error codes on the display and report back what you find, OK?

Good Luck!

Hyndai Elantra - 2003 - Passenger side wiper wont go.

I have worked on other wipers, but haven't looked specifically at the Elantra. My guess is that there may be a bolt loose in the linkage between the wiper arms. The motor seems to be working fine, so it is possibly in the linkage between the wiper arms. I think that it can be fixed fairly quickly if this is the issue.

Dvd player will not spin disk

Unfortunately, your DVD player is broken. Portable units like these often get bumped and jostled and the motor that spins the DVD quits (very small and fragile). Sorry, I wish there were a magic button.
