Having problems with your Jenn-Air JDB6510 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Plastic is melted onto the heating element. is this a problem? what should i do?


Answers :

I am assuming the dishwasher is not working.

\015\012You will need to check where the plastic has come from. The temperature has to be very high for the plastic to melt. This can happen if the dishwasher heater has been on with no water in the dishwasher. Normally the controller should not allow this. Also the thermostat should cut in to prevent the temperature from going high.

\015\012Most likely it is not plastic but a problem in the wash pump which is causing some residue to circulate in the water and deposit on heating element.
\015\012
\015\012In any case, try to scrape off as much of the material as you can and then run the dishwasher with a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit. The instructions are on the kit label.

I have an Ariston LI45. The stupid thin one. It's not seen much work & is just out of Guarantee. It's stopped working & is showing 2 flashing lights. Stops partway in to a cycle with water in the base, but not enough to cover the element. Tried re-setting, no difference.

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t
