Question about Jenn-Air Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher fills-up with water, cycles and empties, but nothing is clean. The pump might be bad as it doesn't spray the water around? What else could it be? Sean

    I spent all day working on the problem. It leaks at the motor shaft and water has dripped all over the wash motor. The impeller and blade shaft have been sheared off so nothing is spinning or pumping. I ordered a new blade, shaft and seal kit for $28 and will try that before I replace the wash motor for $180. I only hope this will stop the leak at the shaft.



    Thank you,

If no water spray, indicates a fault with pump. but a common fault with pump is pump capacitor so worth checking this. capacitor is a cheap part. if pump is hot to touch or humming then this indicates capacitor fault

Whirlpool dishwasher has food particles baked on.


Heating element may fail. This will lead to the machine stopping part way through its cycle

Pumps. There are 2 pumps in most dishwashers. The drain pump,( which describes itself -it pumps the water out of the machine.)
The recirculating pump which forces the water at high pressure through the spray nozzles and arms. (This is how the cleaning action is performed)
These pump may either leak, or burn out. Either way, the only solution is replacement.

My dishwasher doesn't clean my dishes anymore and sometimes it doesnt dry them. it is a quiet partner 1 and it is about 2 years old.


It sounds like the water pump on the dish washer has gone out. A dish washer works (much like a clothes washer) by filling up the washer with a set amount of water, then through circulation, pumps the water up through the various spray nozzels. If the water pump is worn and not making enough pressure, the spray won't get the job done. Depending upon make/model, it may be cheaper to replace the water pump.

Run an empty dishwasher load with a bowl of white vinegar on the bottom shelf. As the dishwasher runs the cycle, the vinegar is slowly disbursed and cleans the dishwasher.

Running but not cleaning



Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Dishwasher not spraying/pumping water in wash cycle


If your dishwasher is filling, draining and the heating element is working then the wash pump motor has probably failed.

You have not provided the manufacturer and model number, so I have no way of knowing if your dishwasher has a separate drain and wash pump motor.

Empties and fills but boils the water


Can you hear/see any washing sound/spray, it sounds to me like the wash pump could be faulty.
