Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1090AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Front of dishwasher leaking from sides.

Hello, I recently moved a dishwasher from my home to our cottage. A Jenn air JDB4950AWP. It is now leaking water while cycling from the front, only on the sides. I think it is overfilling. Seals seem fine and have not leaked in the past. Float switch works. I have filled with lower water pressure. I think it is the float. The float is 3/4 under water before the switch is activated. The heating element is also completely under water.
What do you think?

Jenn-Air dishwasher will not drain


Hello there:
I am assuming it washes OK

First remove the kick plate.on the front bottom
Is the pump running when it should be draining?
Is The solenoid (Wash/drain) pulling down when it should be draining? (If visable)
Left hand side attached to the pump housing.

If yes then you probably have a blocked drain hose or house drain blockage.
Undo the drain hose at the sink, often stuff can collect where the hose fits over the drain fitting and cause a plug. and also the hose can get clogged on the inlet side of the pump too ok?
If OK. Try to drain it into a pail. Be sure to hold the hose there firmly and put a rag/towel over the top of the pail or you will have water everywhere.
and fully inspect the hose all the way up to the pump .
Hope his is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Jenn Aire dishwasher DW861upq leaks


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee
