20 Most Recent Jenn-Air JDB6510 Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers

Sounds like a noisy circulation pump motor. As an Engineer, I would treat any abnormal noise seriously; the motor may require examination and possibly a new start capacitor fitting? or it may be loose or have a problem with its impeller, etc. Or it could possibly be a relay for the heating element is noisy. Either way, abnormal noises are unusual, and dishwashers need to be 100% reliable as they are often used unattended or overnight and any problem might indicate a possible fire risk. Sorry to be so heavy - is the machine subject to any guarantees or extended insurance etc? Some have 5 year guarantees. Whatever, I would call an engineer out to have it checked over.

looks like it's already olde device, that have lot of residues everywhere, so correct water flow is not achieved....

it's problem of all older dishwashers....
ask technician about price, if it's cheap let him repair it.... but sure later something else will come up....
or buy new one, sometimes it's cheaper, than to repair it....

Yes I had the same problem and just fixed it for $7.00. Did not even had to take anything apart. This is what you will have to do. If this dosen't work then try what these experts are suggesting. Please follow these steps for optimal results. #1 Break off a plastic Tea spoon. #2 Put it in place of a LATCH to by pass so you can watch the operation of the dishwasher.(put down some towels for water spill) #3 start the dishwasher on normal cycle. #4 Pour in Gallon of White Vinegar($2.00) while the Dishwasher is being filled. #5 Let it run through its cycle. After the cycle is complete water will drain out and then actual cleaning cycle will start. Then #6 while the dishwasher is being filled again pour in 48 OZ or bigger bottle of CLR (Calciam Lime Rust) it is available at Meijer, walmart, Rite Aid, Home Depot Ace Menard's etc. for $5.00. sit by the dishwasher and listen for it. if you hear water draining pull and push the water plunger so it won't drain so you don't loose your CLR down the drain. since you have the spoon in the LATCH your dishwasher will always be on so BE CAREFUL when you stick your hand in it. And after the cycle is complete enjoy your NEW DISHWASHER.

A vibrating noise indicates that your Bosch dishwasher is not level. Adjust the leveling legs until the dishwasher is level. Use a carpenter's level to assist you with this process. If the floor is uneven or unstable, fix the flooring. Or, place wood shims or a 3/4 inch piece of plywood under the dishwasher.

The motor has a plastic disc connected to it, which can break off if it wears out. You must replace the whole motor since this component is difficult to fix. Check the motor bearings, which can make noise if they get wet. If the bearings are wet, your tub seal is compromised. Pry it out with a crowbar, and install a new one. A squealing noise usually indicates that the heater fan is warped or rusted. Order a new one since you can't usually repair this part.

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

You might have something in the drain pump. To check you need to pull it out from the counter and remove the hoses from the pump to see. First turn off power to it, and make sure you have enough slack in the water line to pull out

This may or may not help, but is worth a try.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

The water inlet valve is likely bad.
