Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Codes

Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Code 5-2 or F5E2

If your Jenn-Air dishwasher is displaying Error Code 5-2 or F5E2, it indicates that the control system has detected an issue with the door not opening as expected between cycles. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the error and steps for potential resolution:

Understanding the Error:

The electronic control board of your dishwasher anticipates the door to be opened between cycles. This is crucial for the proper initiation of the next cycle. If the door isn’t opened as expected, the dishwasher may not start the next cycle, triggering the 5-2 or F5E2 error code.

DIY Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Cycle Interruption:
    • If you haven’t opened the door between cycles, start by canceling the current cycle.
    • Open and close the dishwasher door securely.
  2. Initiate a New Cycle:
    • Attempt to start a new cycle after opening and closing the door. Sometimes, this simple action can reset the system.
  3. Manual Door Simulation:
    • If the new cycle doesn’t start, unplug the dishwasher from the power source.
    • Wait for a few minutes and then plug it back in to simulate the door opening electronically.
  4. Cycle Start Test:
    • Try starting a new cycle again. If it initiates successfully, it suggests that the door switch may not be detecting the door opening properly.
  5. Door Switch Inspection:
    • If the issue persists, there may be a problem with the door switch.
    • Consider replacing the door latch assembly, as the door switch might be defective and not registering the door opening.

Important Note: Always exercise caution when troubleshooting electronic appliances. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with these steps, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance.

By following these DIY steps, you can potentially resolve the Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Code 5-2 or F5E2 related to door opening detection. If the problem persists after attempting these solutions, it may be time to consult a technician for a more in-depth assessment and possible replacement of the door latch assembly.
