Question about Dishwashers
We bought this dishwasher in 2007 and it's never consistently allowed us to change the cycles by pressing the choices on the push-pad panel in front. It cleans just fine, but it won't let ME decide to use a "normal" wash versus a "light wash" versus any of the others. I've tried contacting maytag and they say there's nothing they can do because it's not under warranty anymore. My husband is a plumber who installed this AND many others for other people, and he thinks there's a bad "sensor" in the pad. Is this likely? All I want to do is select the length of the wash cycle and I'll be happy! Thank you. please reply to direct email at firstname.lastname@example.org
FYI... I followed Miss Midget's steps... and there it was... a piece of plastic... actually one of the end caps from the rack. Poor design if you ask me. So for all you "grinders" out there, it's an easy fix... just need the appropriate star screwdriver. It went back together easier than it did taking it apart. Thanks.

Our control panel is fine. For now. (The machine is only 3 months old). This is our problem--and I haven't yet seen this complaint at all over the internt: The lower wash arm is getting stuck on the bottom rack and stopping immediately. This seems to be a design flaw. The bottom rack is just built too low. A service man was out once. He tightened the wash arm. Didn't work. The service department at the dealership is now ignoring our subsequent calls!! So I wonder if the "not cleaning" problem you have is because of this.

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.
If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

Sounds like you have a bad Control Board
But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews
