Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB6657 Built-in Dishwasher
My MDB6657 will keep running and won't stop unless stopped manually or open the door. If I then close the door, it will continue running. I've already replaced the control panel to no avail. Suggestions?
The control panel most likely has control over one or more relays that open or close depending on the programmed action.
The relay need not be the typical electromagnetic kind but could be solid state and produce the same results.
It sounds a lot like one of the relays has welded its contacts together (or shorted, in the case of a solid state device) so the control panel and settings no longer have dominion over its actions.
I'm not sure where to look in your machine though.
If you are lucky (well, while being unlucky) there may be a schematic on the housing of the machine that could give you some clues about the location of these control elements.
