Maytag dishwasher won't start

Hi there, I have a maytag dishwasher that I bought about 6 months ago, it won't turn on, the "3" is illuminated, and everytime I push a button, any button, the green light near 3 blinks 3 times.  I NEED this dishwasher to work, I have 6 kids.  HELP!!!!

    I have the same problem. I got the board replace 3 times in the last year and the dischwasher still is not starting. It would be working for about 4 months and then the board needs to be replace. I don't think this is reasonable to have to replace a board every 4 months on a high end dishwasher.

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

Maytag dishwasher mdbh945aww3 does not start washing. the only button that seems to work is the start/cancel and all it does is turn on all the lights.


you have to get the touch pad replaced. my worked for 11 month, got it replaced (3 weeks to get the part), worked for 1.5 month and broke again out of warranty. time to get a new dishwasher and extended warranty. maytag is total c$%p. Everything is made in Mexico. I think even China makes a better product. WOW did I say that?!?!

My Maytag legacy series dishwasher work one day and not the next


MAYTAG is AWFUL....READ REVIEWS before buying..If I only knew.Another thing Thanksgiving time,all the cooking,company & dishes,I have to hand wash after 3 says of prepeing food.WTF!!!
I am not soo happy at this time.It worked fine after a strugle to get it started & now the next load it's dead as ever.It has the lights lit dim but nothing else will go.I tried everything & cant even read the manuel on it since maytag charges for a viewing of there 5 month old product's manuel. I lost my manuel on mine & refuse to pay to read up to see if there is a reset button.I paid enough for this 5 months ago & it was only installed 4 months new! how's that for crappy appliance not to mention my lemon of a washer i got a few years ago.I see maytag has shittttttttyyyy appliances now when they use to be on top! I's ratehr buy a generic brand for less since it's got more of a warranty to offer.This here buy one or you lose as I & a millioon more..READ the REVIEWS Millioons of us been screwed & this economy who has it to cough up? NOT I !
Have a blessed Thanksgiving everyone ~~ Mine will only get better once I replace my appliances to a more trusting brand & with assurance of a better brand,I dont think I'll have this dealing in a short 4 to 5 month time frame & to mention again on a holiday tons of dishes.I want my money back in triple damages from all this stress
So posting my solution is DON'T BUY MAYTAG
