    Maytag Quiet Series is probably fine for single person who eats out most days. For a family, this machine is not up to the job. Digital panel fails (three times, buy the extended warranty.) Dishes don't get clean because spinning things inside get clogged, have to poke clean with a tooth pick -
    Go Bosch - twice as much money - but, you get what you pay for...

    MY MAYTAG QUIET SIERIES 200 WILL NOT START THE OTHER BUTTONS WORK BUT NOT THE STATRT BUTTON

  • AnotherLemon May 19, 2009

    I have a similar problem that just came out of nowhere. When you try to start up the Maytag MDB-8 dishwasher (which by the way is JUST BARELY two years old). The START button and the DELAY button don't work. All other buttons work on the control panel. The door is in all the way and latched.

    Thinking it may be a glitch in the electronics, I even turned off the AC power to the dishwasher. That didn't do anytning. Sad state of affairs when you pay $400 for something that barely lasts two years. I bet the Maytag repair man isn't fat and rolly poly anymore. He can't be, because he is constantly on the run fixing the junk Maytag makes.

Does it help to push it more tightly shut...or fiddle with the latch.
Mine is not running consistently unless we push the door shut tightly. Others here also report problem with the safety latch causing this washer to quit. May have to replace the part.

Jenn air. Quiet seriesii won't start. Lights on panel flashing. Tried turning off power for fifteen minutes at breaker.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 200 dishwasher. The 3 symbol on the face control panel light is on and starts flashing anytime you push any other button and it won't run. What is the problem?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

You can press and hold the RINSE ONLY/AIR DRY/HEATED DRY button for 20 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My maytag quiet series 200 wont do anything when I press the start button. there are no lights. I have tried tripping the circuits?


Mine would not start, and could not set any options. I read online to try resetting by pressing Heated Wash, then Heated Dry, then repeat both. I did it and my machine cleared and worked fine. Give it a try!

I have a maytag quiet series 200 type 777-0 when i push the start/cancle it will not start?


We had the same issue with our Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher. The Start/cancel button would not work all the time. We ended up removing the front panel from the machine and on the backside of the panel there is a plastic ultra thin ribbon cable that runs from the computer box to the push button control panel. We wiggled the ribbon cable and the start button began to work, but only if the ribbon cable was held in a certain position. So we super glued the cable in that position and it's been working consistently now.

Upon closer inspection the ribbon cable appeared to have 3 or 4 very tiny dark spots on the wires.
That would indicate to me that somehow moisture slowly eroded the tiny wires and bending the cable made the connections touch again, but for how long it will work like this is anyone's guess.
Also, it appears that the ribbon cable is permanently attached to the push button control panel. So you can't replace the ribbon cable itself without buying the hole front panel.

Maytag Quiet Series dishwasher won't start


Sounds like you have a bad Control Board

http://www.partstore.com/Part/Maytag/Maytag/MDB6600AWW/Maytag/Maytag/99003160/New.aspx

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

Keypad does not work


Time to buy a new one I guess.
Go check the fuse braker, it tripped probably.
Did you close the door properly , push it hard with a slam. It will start working. Jiggle the float inside the up and down.

Maytag legacy series 3 yr's old


I had a similar problem where slowly specific buttons stop working. Moisture was getting into the control board and slowly killing buttons. I replaced the control board and that worked for another year, until the buttons began dying again.

For now, there are other ways to start the machine, but you just have to let time expire to stop it. It is probably a control board issue.
