SOURCE: Front Glass Door Panel on Jenn-Air JDB1270AWF Dishwasher

Hi again,

You think that liquid nails would be too permanent, so you're wondering if I can suggest an adhesive that would 1) not react adversely with the white paint on the glass panel 2) would not dissolve the black rubber-like adhesive (which has let go) that's between the glass panel and the small brackets, and 3) would be strong enough to hold the glass panel, which is where the DW handle/pull is located, and which is subject to stress caused by constant opening and closing.

Different adhesives are available in diferent parts of the country and they are all subject to proper instalation. So I'm going to sugest some guide lines. 1) You're going to have to do a little leg work. You're going to talk to different people in different hardware stores telling them about your three requirements. You'll be surprised at the varying degrees of knowledge. Don't argue, just take notes. 2) Once you've settled on a product it's time to test it. Find a small piece of glass and aply it to metal useing the adhesive. After drying you can tell if it is satisfactory. If not go back to no.1.
3) Once you're happy with the test find a pair of C-clamps and two blocks of wood. Aply adhesive, then using the wood blocks to protect the glass use the C-clamps on each side. Be carefull not to overtighten. Do this with the door horizontally. Just watch the adhesive, when it starts to squeeze out, stop. Make sure the clamps are aplyed evenly. Be carefull. Good luck.

Harvey

1. If you do not use Jet-dry liquid in detergent dispenser left side compartment, the drying result for dishes will be very poor.
2. You should check the heating element for continuity(conections for heating element under bottom panel of d/w).

SOURCE: Jenn Air dishwasher door won't close

i had the exact same issue. it's a broken latch mechanism, and is a fairly common problem.

i bought the part at my local repair shop for $45 (you can find it online for $30). it literally took 10 minutes.

you need to right size bit to remove the 10 bolts on the interior of the door. once you have those out, the latch slides right out of the top. there are 2 electrical connectors (careful - you can get a shock. disconnect the 2 connectors, reconnect to the new one, and zip your 10 bolts back in. super easy

I took the inside of the door off my Jenn Air dishwasher and now it won't start


You broke it!!!!!!! Check out the wiring associated with on/off cycle. There might also be a switch by the door designed to not allow unit to turn on when door is open - check it out. It might not be engaged if the inner panel of door is not properly hitting the switch.
