Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Codes

Jenn-Air Dishwasher Error Code 6-1 or F6E1

If your Jenn-Air dishwasher is displaying the error code 6-1 or F6E1 and is not filling with water, don’t worry – we’ve got a detailed guide to help you troubleshoot and potentially fix the issue on your own.

Possible Cause: Item Stuck Under Overfill Float

  1. Unplug and Shut Off:
    • Unplug your dishwasher from the electrical outlet.
    • Shut off the water supply valve connected to the dishwasher.
  2. Inspect Overfill Float:
    • Check for any items lodged under the overfill float. The overfill float is a small device that, if stuck in the “up” position, can prevent the dishwasher from filling.
  3. Remove Obstructions:
    • If you find any items obstructing the overfill float, carefully remove them.

Water Supply Issues:

  1. Check Water Inlet Valve Screen:
    • Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet valve.
    • Examine the water inlet valve screen for any clogs.
  2. Replace Water Valve if Clogged:
    • If the screen is clogged, replace the water valve. Debris from the clog can enter the valve body, causing it to stick open and potentially lead to flooding.
  3. Test Water Flow:
    • Place the water supply line in a shallow pan.
    • Briefly open the water supply valve to check if water flows from the supply line.
  4. Plumbing Check:
    • If no water flows, consult a plumber to repair the water supply to your dishwasher.

Electrical and Wiring Checks:

  1. Inspect Wiring Connections:
    • Examine the wiring connections on the water inlet valve.
    • Reconnect any loose wires.
  2. Replace Damaged Wire Harness:
    • If the wires are damaged, replace the wire harness.

Further Troubleshooting:

  1. Electronic Control Board:
    • If the issue persists after the above steps, there may be a problem with either the water inlet valve or the electronic control board.
    • Consider replacing the water inlet valve or consulting a professional for assistance with the electronic control board.

By following these DIY troubleshooting steps, you can potentially identify and resolve the issue causing the error code on your Jenn-Air dishwasher. If the problem persists or seems too complex, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance.
