Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB8910 Built-in Dishwasher
Our dishwasher has stated acting up the other day when it would get to it appears the drain cycle it will just click every few seconds. I ran the automatic diags mode on it and it fails on the low current part of the test and if I hit the drain button it will attempt to spin up the motor then just click then it will just continue clicking eery few seconds. I disassembled the entire pump assem to be sure there was no blockage or broken componants. I assume it is the drain circuit side of the motor but before replacing is there another way of testing?
I had the same problem. It tried to start every few seconds when draining. I made sure there was nothing jammed in the motor, it was clean. I checked the resistance of the two windings and they were about the same. I thought it was the relay on the board but after changing it there was no improvement. I connected power directly to the motor and it just hummed. I then realized it was probably the starter capacitor. I swapped the wires between the drain and washing windings and started the motor in the diagnostic mode and it ran. While looking at the starter caps on the board I realized one was loose. I re-soldered both starter caps and it works fine.

I had the same problem. Capacitor for wash cycle completely unsoldered itself. Two 1 or 2 watt resistors nearby were getting so hot they were discoloring the circuit board. I was looking for a new capacitor when I saw jcschoen's solution, so I spent $12 on a soldering iron and solder and one hour later I am washing dishes!
More repair-it-yourselfers should enter these solutions. This was extremely helpful. It saved me over $142. Thanks
