Jenn-Air JDB890AWQ stopped middle cycle no motor activity or sound
The Jenn-Air has worked fine. Suddenly during first wash cycle it just stopped and lights flashed. No motor sound. Tried drain and silence. No humming or motor sound even from underneath. No problems prior. Could it be an overload? How do I check and reset? Thanks.

No real reset, nut you can check for power leading to the unit, make sure the bnreaker hasnt tripped , and next if you remove the bottom acees panel you lfind a box to the right . the electrical conne\ction is made behind ther make sure the connection hasnt shaken itself loose.CAUTION LIVE WIRES BEHIND THAT COVER"

JB, make sure the float assy. is not stuck inside the tub. On the motor harness, you have yellow-main, red-drain grey-wash and blue is the common. Check for power to the motor during the wash cycle. On this model I believe they installed a thermal cut out after series 11. I'll keep an eye peeled for any replies..Catriver.
If you hear unusual noises during dishwasher operation, check to see if
a dish or cup is loose and being knocked around during the wash cycle.
If you hear grinding, grating, crunching or a buzzing sound, chances
are a hard object has gone into the wash module. Once the object is
ground up, the noises should cease.
It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
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.
