Jenn Air dishwasher not working properly?
« on: November 11, 2012, 06:32:13 PM »
We have a Jenn Air dishwasher, mod. JDB4000AWS that fills and cycles ok but the water does not circulate as it should and dishes don't get clean. Thanks in advance.

if unit is filling and you hear wash motor running but water is not being circulated i would suspect you need a seal kit.

Jenn Air dishwashers have small holes in the spray arms. I have one and a couple of times a year the holes need to be cleaned out. Do it when the arm is dry. If you can't pull the stuff through, then push it in and try to shake it out.
