Having problems with your Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1090AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

Can't start the dishwasher, lock button is lit up. Tried to hold down many buttons for 3-5 seconds, but lock button continues to stay lit up. Tried resetting the power to machine, but nothing changed. Please help.


Answers :

Hello Albert, On the Jenn-Air dishwasher you have, you have to hold down the "Heated Dry" button for 3-5 seconds to unlock the control panel.
\015\012
\015\012This should unlock the controls so you can again use the dishwasher normally.
\015\012
\015\012Since you''re likely going to have this dishwasher for some time, I've included a link where you can download a free owner's manual for it.
\015\012
\015\012I would print out a copy for your future use and reference. I also have a file on my computer that I title "Home Appliances and Equipment" which is where I download and save an electronic copy so I always have a backup copy saved, since manuals aren't always readily available on the web, as the appliances get older.

Our Bosch dishwasher #SHU9922UC (FD8007) will not turn on properly. Only its drain pump starts -- and keeps running -- when it's powered on and the door's closed. Pressing the two "drain cancel" buttons for more than 3 seconds doesn't help. Neither does cutting off power, then turning it back on in the hopes of resetting the machine's 'computer'. No water inflow occurs. Help?


I had a similar issue after I replaced a bad drain pump, seems the logic got hung up.. I poured in a pitcher of water, closed the door, it drained and was then ok - worth a try. If not, you may have a bad water level switch. ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Elite Drawer Dishwasher model 465.13329600 Normal Wash and High Temp Wash buttons stay lit, as does green Lock button. The Start/Resume button and the red button on the front of the drawer keep flashing. I've tried key combos suggested above, but nothing seems to work. Even tried shutting it off at the circuit breaker to reset it, and that didn't work either. This ****** was purchased in 2006 or 2007, and hasn't been used very much. WTF?

My dishwasher KUDi01IL is having trouble with the electronics...only the cancel button will work. The other buttons are no longer lit, but occasionally I can get the "normal" wash button to light..however, the machine will not start.

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

I have a GU1500XTLB1, type-575-0 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. For the last couple of weeks I've been getting the control lock on. I got the manual out, I hold the air dry button and it clears. My problem is now when I turn the machine on dosen't matter which cycle I hit (pots and pans, normal, or quick wash) it runs for about 5 minutes and it goes into a mode with the timer having lines going horizontal with the air dry button lit up and rinse button lit up. It sounds like it starts the cycle

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
