Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Codes

Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Code 1-1 or F1E1

If your Jenn-Air dishwasher is displaying the error code 1-1 or F1E1, it indicates a stuck relay on the electronic control board. This issue can disrupt the normal functioning of your dishwasher, but fear not – we’ve got a step-by-step guide to help you troubleshoot and potentially resolve the problem yourself.

Error Description:

The error code signifies a malfunction in the electronic control board, particularly a stuck relay. A stuck relay can impede the proper communication between components, leading to operational disruptions.

  1. Power Off and On:

    Start by shutting off the power to the dishwasher. Wait for at least 5 minutes before restoring power. This simple step can sometimes reset the control board.

  2. Inspect Wiring for Damage:

    Examine the wiring connected to the control board for any visible damage, such as frayed or broken wires. If any issues are found, carefully repair or replace the damaged sections.

  3. Check Component Resistance:

    Consult the tech sheet located behind the bottom front toe panel of the dishwasher. Using this guide, measure the resistance through all components connected to the control board. Identify any components showing abnormal resistance or signs of damage.

  4. Replace Defective Components:

    If you find components with abnormal resistance or damage, replace them with compatible parts. This could include relays, switches, or other elements connected to the control board.

  5. Electronic Control Board Replacement:

    If the issues persist after checking and replacing components, it may be necessary to replace the electronic control board. Ensure you have the correct replacement part for your dishwasher model.

Before attempting any DIY repairs, always prioritize safety. Ensure the dishwasher is disconnected from the power source during inspections and repairs. If you are uncomfortable with any step or if the problem persists, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance.
