Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1270AW Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Glasses and others things are not getting clean in the upper rack. A white film remains on the glass and stains are not removed. Also I'm having trouble with the silverware showing rust spots and not getting clean. I use Jet- Dry all the time. We bought it three years ago. The brand is JDB-5 and numbers inside the door are: JDB1270 AWY 36072124 LC MAX LOAD CHG 9. made in Newton, Iowa. We have had trouble with things not getting clean for quite a while, but it has gotten worse. The water is scalding when it comes out of the tap from the same hot water source. The only thing about it that works well - is it's silence. Can you help us?

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is toadd some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.
Other things to try: CLR on the spray nozzles to loosen up cloggs.Check the filters to be sure they are clear.

Check that the arms spin freely when spun by hand, then check the outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. It may also cause water to continue dripping onto dried dishes after the the drying cycle has stopped.

Film and food residieu remains on upper rack


Hi, is the wash arm underneath the upper basket turning freely and is it not blocked with any food particles? I've had items out of my dishwasher with a similar problem and it's been when the upper wash arm has been blocked or a spoon has fell through and prevented it from turning and washing properly.

Good luck.

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
