Buttons not responding

The buttons on my Hotpoint SDW80 dishwasher are only occassionally working. They will work for a time every now and again but generally they do not respond when pressed. Could this be some sort of loose wiring issue?

On my hotpoint with the lcd screen I took the lcd section out and apart and the pad was sitting slightly out from the contact points so I cleaned it up and fixed back together and could not believe that it was that simple! it worked perfectly and has done since. Its not hard to do I promise. P.s I used to have to bang it to get the buttons to work!!

Sounds like the button pad has worn out and needs replacement.  Generally the wires are spade lug units which don't come loose.

The setting push panel does not respond - can't turn it on

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the buttons don't work on the control panel the entire touchpad and control panel assembly may need to be replaced. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the buttons don't work on the control panel, the dishwasher touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.





Main Control Board

The dishwasher has a main control board which regulates nearly every function in the dishwasher. If the control panel buttons don't work, and other causes have been ruled out, the main control board might need to be replaced.

Control panel inoperable - 2nd time this has happened. First time repairman said "it was fried" because the panel is just under the countertop - of course this is how it is designed to be. Now it has...


Is it operable when the door is close? I'm having a similar problem. The console panel on the top of the door appears to be not working. No lights. No buttons will respond. However when the door is shut, I can squeeze a finger to the start button and actually start the dishwasher. Light also come on when the dishwasher door is closed.

I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry button several times until all the buttoms light up this will fix your problem.

 A clean light that flashed repeatedly 7 times then off. Reset as above with the heated wash and heated dry buttons. You may then noticed a reduced flow from the pump so dissasemble the lower arm and water inlet assy.You may find it mostly plugged with foregin matter and some othe junk. Upon removal of that stuff and reassembly,It may work as new!
