Maytag dependably quiet plus not starting

Hi, we have an older dishwasher about 6-7 years. It worked yesterday but won't start today at all. Sometimes it has to be bumpbed or the door sort of adjusted but none of that works today. It seems to be latching fine but the lights will not come on when the control knob is turned to any of the settings.

    How do I check connections with the door switch, does that mean taking off the front panel ? Sorry but new to dishwasher problems.

  • LEE WOODHAM Nov 07, 2008

    Okay, I took off the panel, looked at the switches and everything looks attached etc. Wiggled some wires and it all looks okay but still no power at all. Any other suggestions besides calling a repair person?

    Thanks for the help, I did a bit more fiddling with the connections and managed to get power and from there I cleaned some of the connections and the door latch. It now works! As a mother of 3, it's nice to have it working again. Thanks.

Maytag dishwasher won't start but other buttons work

It's probably your Circuit Board (CB)! My dishwasher is on the second CB and it keeps blowing the dispenser transistor. This needs to be brought up to the MAYTAG goons to see if they will start recalling this crappy thing. My machine is barely a year old and will have it's third CB!

My maytag W10199645 dishwasher won't start

Maytag model w10199645 was starting intermittently, and sometimes only when we pressed and held the start button for 10-15 seconds. Finally tonight it just wouldn't start, period. I unplugged it for 15 minutes, then used the Heated Dry/Normal/Heated Dry/Normal and it started back up on its own.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Door Switch

hi there,

you are correct about the switch but depending on the model, sometimes the switch does not come separately. check with your local parts supplier or go to to see your options.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Dishwasher is not despensing the detergent properly. After a wash cycle there is still some left.

My Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus dishwasher seems to have died. No power. None of the buttons work, it quiet mid-cycle. No breaker issue, my garbage disposal runs off same breaker and is working fine. Any ideas? I was thinking the comp. board that the buttons work off of is fried. If this is the case any idea how much to replace it? Would it be cheaper to buy a new dishwasher?

Maytag quiet series 300

hi, there is probably some small pieces in the shredder. Remove the cover in the bottom and you will probably find some pieces near the blades.
