My dishwasher door won't close. Jenn Air

My dishwasher door won't close. It has nothing to do with the lock out feature that allows you to lock the dishwasher from use. Jenn Air JOB1090AWB. All the controls are on the top of the dishwasher door and not accessable when the door is closed. I can see the latch inside the door and have taken the door panel off to look, but I am affraid to force anything for fear I will break it.

SOURCE: oven door does not close

I had the same problem. The first time the Tech. came out, put a new hinge in and it held until Nov. 07. ( 8 months ). Then the left hinge brakes when I opend the door and it crashes to the floor. Bending the right hinge and the metal doorliner. Jan.7,08 everything was fixed. On 1/11 after no more then 10 openings & closings the hinge broke again. This time I heard the crack of the braking metal after opening the door 2 inches. It now sits in my kitchen propped-up with a stick, waiting for the repairman. I am sorry I have no solution , but there must be a problem with the hinges. I forgot to tell you that it started with a door that did not close, like yours.

The lock motor may have failed. Most often, bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side as you move the door to the right,will allow you to release the lock and open the door.

SOURCE: Jenn Air dishwasher door won't close

It could be as simple as the mounting tabs being too tight up against the bottom of the countertop. You might need to loosen the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in place against the underside of the countertop, until the latch and strike plate engage.

It might be that the countertop is interferring with the latch or that the door edge doesn't have enough clearance to properly close and engage the latching tab.

If you can't get the latch to engage, it might be that it got bent slightly in the removal and reinstallation. A simple way to confirm this would be to pull the dishwasher out about 4-6" from the cabinet and see if the catch and latching tab line up and engage. If they do, then you need to make sure there is enough clearance around the cabinet edges and at the underside of the countertop. If it doesn't engage, then it is more likely that the tab (male part) needs to be adjusted slightly to allow for proper engagement. Make small adjustments (bending carefully up or down until it goes into the latch without binding.

You should be able to get this lined up with a little effort and have things working again.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!

BrianGem posted a great solution back in May of '08, I just completed that fix on my own Jenn air, took me about 30 minutes once I got the correct capacitor.
The display board apparently has a weak spot in the
design, most likely heat related, (probably low priced components from offshore sources)
Fix: Replace heat damaged capacitor labeled C3 on display board, Hard part will be obtaining the 35Volt 68uF capacitor, I'm lucky enough to have a Brother in the electronics design field who found me a couple of high reliability caps designed for hot applications, He does not recommend changing sizes without design review for fear of overloading another component, however several other posts have indicated that a 35V 100mF cap has worked fine for them.

TURN OFF POWER TO OVEN PRIOR TO STARTING ANY REPAIRS.
My control panel was attached to the oven with 4 screws accessed from above the top oven door, the panel slid up about 1/2 " and lifted off, Unplug the ribbon cables and the panel can be removed to a convenient work surface. The display board itself is mounted with 4 screws and connected with a wide flat ribbon cable, the suspect capacitor is surface mounted to the reverse side of the board, two plastic clips need to be released (gently) and the ribbon cable unplugged. Capacitor is likely discolored or leaking, Using as small a soldering iron as you can find De-solder it and replace with new, match polarity marks and don’t use any more solder than needed.
If you run into trouble drop me an e-mail to dltatsjc@aol.com and I’ll try to help.
Good luck.
Thanks for this site..

Door won't lock


If your dishwasher door won't lock, it could be a problem with the latch adjustment or the door seal. Some latches are designed to be adjustable, and yours may be set too tightly. Look at the owner's manual for specific instructions or follow these basic steps for adjusting the latch:

1. Spray WD-40 or other lubricant onto the latch.
2. Slowly open and close the door several times, noticing whether the door hits the strike plate (the metal plate on the top of the dishwasher frame). Use a hammer to lightly tap the strike plate to move it as needed.
3. If possible, adjust the depth of your latch by unscrewing the latch assembly using a screwdriver and reseating it. Work with the adjustment until it latches correctly.
Note: If your latch is permanently fixed, have a qualified professional address the problem.

The door seal-also called a gasket-can also cause problems if you have a brand new dishwasher or door seal. The good news is that the door seal will mold to the door's shape over the first week or so. Operating your dishwasher with the highest level of heat will help this process happen more quickly. Because the material is pliable, and because heat will soften it, it will seal to the door more securely after those first few loads.

On the flip side, an old door seal can also keep your door from closing correctly. Check the seal for signs of warping or damage. If the seal needs replacing, arrange for service, or consider doing it yourself. In most models, it's a relatively easy DIY project. See Dishwasher gasket replacement for step-by-step instructions.

For more troubleshooting steps, see Dishwasher door repair. I hope this helps!

Jenn air dishwasher model JDB3610AWX has no power at the control board please help


Hello,
Their are a couple possiblities that could be causing that;
1) the connections where the house wiring connects to the dishwasher in of the junction box has burnt, the circuit breaker will very likely be on but the bad/burnt connection wont send power to control.

2) one or both of the door switches on the latch asm. are bad,to check those use a meter set to a low ohms setting and check for ZERO ohms when the door is closed,to check those TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER remove wires from switch(s) and place one meter lead on each terminal

I hope this will help you to figure out why your dishwasher won't come on,

My Jenn Air dishwasher door won't close. It seems the lower left corner hinge has come (out of alignment), so when you lift the door to close it it stops mid-way like the door is tilted. Not sure how...


Hello sharon. do not use it until this issue is resolved. the hinge may be loose or it may even be bent. get a flash light and check this out. the problem if it is a loose screw is that it may require a special screw driver to tighten the screws again. IF it is under warranty, call for a free repair. Otherwise check it out and see if you can find exactly what the cause is and determine if you have the right screw driver to correct it. Joe

Dish washer will not latch


Latch is locked, but the door is open, panel will not light up. Tried to close door after loading, wouldn't close, water started running, tried to figure out what was wrong, something in the way, etc, but nothing. Then water sprayed all over, started pushing buttons, and finally it quit, now latch is locked, but the door is open.
