I have same dishwasher, same problem. i fixed it with epoxy. inside door is the mother board and on the left hand side there is a square box looking thing that came loose, i think it is a relay of some sort (i am not a repair guy) but it was loose, i pushed it down and then edged the whole thing with 5 minute epoxy. worked like a charm no problekms since. :-)

Well the most probable reason is that the wiring connectors located at the bottom of the dishwasher behind the toe panel were wired wrong and have shorted out or burned off, the next thing to look at is the control panel. (not control board, the actual panel with the buttons) you can take apart and check to make sure the ribbon cable is still connected, but most likely will be one of those two problems, If you need to get down and really dirty the next step would be to start taking voltage readings.

Are you certain the door is closing at the switch,. if not, inspect the close door switch real well.
IS there any water in the bottom -- perhaps it may be clogged and refuses to call for more water (i.e. turn on).

Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus - Lights flashing

either the control board or the control panel needs replacement. Most likely the latter. There is a possibility that both parts failed also. Usually water gets inside the touchpad, corroding and shorting the touchpad. Good luck

My Maytag dishwasher does not drain water after the wash cycle is over

Hi olabrk,
If you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump. Good luck to you.

Maytag Dishwasher will not start. all lights will flash except for the start / cancel button.

I had the same problem. The plastic wiring strip that connects the touchpad had corrosion from water. The panel would need to be replaced, because they don't sell the touchpad separately. (around $50 - $70 USD)

Maytag MDB6650AWW will not fill

My Maytag MDB6650AWW dishwasher would not fill. The lights on the panel were on when I tried the wash cycle. I tested the water valve but no voltage was found during the cycle. I thought it may be the timer/control circuit. I traced the power from the door switch and found no power going to the float switch leg. I found two wires completely cut through (one going to the Water Valve) and three others partially sliced.
