Hello ashlyn010507,
What exactly do you need to know about how your dishwasher is to be grounded? The national electrical code treats has dishwashers wired like any other appliance in that a receptacle ( like on your wall) is placed in the general area of the dishwasher and a power cord is attached to teh dishwasher at junction box internal to that dishwasher.. the cord is typically plugged into a 3-prong outlet which has a ground terminal. Otherwise... that is all that is required... If you are hard-wiring it ( as was done years ago) then a power feed is brought into a junction box internal to teh dishwasher and you would wire the hot , neutral and ground there).. Please restate your question if this information didn't answer you correctly..
Regards,
Rick

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.

Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.
Is there power to the dishwasher? Electricaly ground dishwasher. Connect ground wire to green ground connector in terminal box. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,fire or electric shock.


Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.
Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
If these tips did not work or your controls are not working correctly you may need to schedule service.

I need details on how to install Maytag built in dishwasher


Hello Ted, Without the exact model number, it is difficult to provide the correct installation instructions for your specific Maytag dishwasher.

I can provide you with a link to the Maytag site where you can enter in your model number and download an owners manual and installation instructions/guide that will provide you with the step-by-step needed to properly install your dishwasher.

http://www.maytag.com/support/manuals_literature.jsp

The installation instructions will provide the proper wiring, water supply inlet plumbing and connection of the water discharge line, as well as all of the dimensions needed for clearances for the countertop and cabinets.

If you're trying to install an older dishwasher, you can also give them a call at 1-800-344-1274 and have your complete model number available, so they can provide you the correct manuals and instructions.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
