Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Water problem Hi, I have a Jenn air DW 711 that does not get water. I checked the following: Water line: I unhooked the water line and it is clear & free flowing. Float: The float moves up and down as it should. Filter: The filter inside the tub is clean. The motor runs and will drain any water in the tub I put a bucket of water in the tub and the dishwasher immediately drains no matter which setting I choose. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve

    Hi Bromikl,

    We have a partial solution. The water valve tested bad and the
    new part arrived today. The tub now fills with water which is a
    huge improvement but the machine immediately drains it out. If I start
    a new cycle, the machine fills with water, drains and runs a wash cycle
    without any water. I hope I'm not chasing good money after
    bad. Any ideas?

    Many thanks for your excellent advise earlier...we have a partial solution.

    Take care,

    Steve

Many dishwashers will drain at the beginning of any cycle.
If the water does not fill after the pump-out cycle, then the problem is either the fill valve or the float switch. You should be able to hear the float switch click as you raise or lower it. The fill valve usually hums whenever it has power.
If the fill valve has power but doesn't open, (use a voltmeter) replace the fill valve. If there is no power at the float switch, nor at the fill valve after pumping out, then the clock / timer is at fault.

We have a Jenn-Air Refrigerator/Freezer (Model #JRSD226) and the ice maker has stopped working.


Check for blockage in the water line in the freezer. If so, defrost it. Might need a new water valve. Maybe a bad ice maker too.
Another possibility is that it's not cold enough in the freezer. Should be below +10F.

JFC2087HRP Jenn-Air freezer creaking noise.


Most of the time this happen when the refrigerator has been hooked up to the water, and than you unhooked it!!, the water that is in the hose makes that sound when it's pushed by the air in the hose. that's a typical problem when you unhooked the water.

My jenn air freezer is not making cubes. the


The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.



The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Icemaker


You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.

Whirlpool ice maker


Hi Chubbo,

 

 When you say you checked the Valve, did you check the Supply valve that feeds water to the fridge, or the Solenouid valve that usually casues this problem.  Unplug your Fridge and roll it away from the wall.  Remove the  rear access panel  and trace the water supply tubing to the solenoid valve. Lots of time the valve is bad.  You  can get a replacement  Solenoid.  at any Appliance part store, or online at www.repairclinic.com

 

If you did check that. You can get a coupling that will adapt from the water supply directly to the line coming from the solenouid to pressure up and see if you actually have a flow problem between the solenoid valve and ice tray.

 

Hope this is helpful to you. Good Day
