SOURCE: MDB 8750 Dish Washer Doesn't start the Wash Cycle.

Yes this can be a touch pad failure that may need to be replace again , because with this type of device usually the touch pad is easy to get bad...

Good luck........

SOURCE: Error flashing and won't reset.

hi there,

PF stands for power failure. the first you should do is check your house breaker and make sure that you did not trip the fuse.

Does anything run? Can you hear the motor running? If not, you have no power coming into the machine. In this case it's the main control board that needs to be replaced.

If the motor hums, it means you have power to the d/w, in that case you need to replace the touchpad.

SOURCE: Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

SOURCE: Touchpad--No Response

See the notes about cycles taking forever. The relay that controls the heating element commonly gets warm enough to melt the solder around the connection, and the internal water heater stops heating. The "2H" indicates how much time the onboard computer thinks it will take to wash the load, based on previous loads, but if the last cycle was longer than 99 minutes, it shows 2 Hours. Repairing the controller board (or replacing it) should solve the problem. This is such a common problem, Bosch should have had a recall, but didn't.

SOURCE: Most of buttons on touch pad are not working.

This was posted in another maytag qs300 thread there are 2 ways to fix the front panels on these dishwashers. My advice fix it as cheaply as possible and save some cash to get a better dish washer because these newer maytags are just plain awfull.

Quick fix for dishwasher from hell.
What I found was to turn off the breaker to the dishwasher, unscrew the inside panel ( about 12 Torx screws ), remove the black cover on the computer ( 1 hex head screw ) remove the ribbon cable coming from the front panel by easing down the plastic locking tab, then take a soft clean cloth and gently wipe the end of the ribbon cable (both sides) and reinstall. This keeps our machine working for another couple of month, when I go thru the same exercise again. I think it is condensation that makes the ribbon cable connection bad or short across two of the lands.

Permanent fix for dishwasher from hell.
The flex cable shown in the pictures above was bad on my unit also. It looks to me like they are pulling too much current through this cable to run all the LED's on the front panel. Mine died the instant death so I removed the touch pad and traced out the wiring.

The start/cancel switch is a connection between pin 6 and pin 10 on the ribbon cable. There is a 10K resistor in series with the switch to limit the current.

I tried to order the part from my local parts house and was told it was a special order only and would take about 4 weeks to get. Later I found you could purchase it off the internet and not have to wait quite as long. Since the replacement part is the full plastic piece across the top of the door I decided to try a mod. The touch panel is just glued to the plastic piece so I removed it completely. That leaves some glue that will need to be cleaned up but I can do that later.

I found a C&K momentary push button switch that fit in a 1/4 inch hole. I drilled the front panel in the center to accept the switch. If you moved it to one side it might not conflict with the latch switches quite as much but I made it fit.

I then looked in my junk box and found two pieces of 18 gauge wire and one 10K resistor. I put the resistor on the normally open pin on the switch and then connected a wire to that. The other wire went to the common pin on the switch.

When you look at the control board the pins are labeled as 2 on one end and 18 on the other. You only see every other pin as there is another row that is buried. You need pins 6 and 10 so they are on the visible row. Use a small soldering iron and connect the two wires up to those pins. It does not matter which one goes where.

Put it all back together and push the button. You do not have all the flashing lights or options but I am now washing my first load of dishes in several weeks.

Whirlpool WFE381LVB gets F1 error code

F1 touch pad / ERC test This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

F-7 code has been flashing, along with constant beeping. This has happened about 5 times over the past 2 months. Eventually it stops but now we resort to flipping the fuse off to get rid of the noise. ...

Hello Marylou,

The F7 code means the same thing on all domestic (USA) brand ovens.What is means is that a button on the touch pad is shorted (welded together) out. Since you did not include brand or model#
i will give you the following advice, if your touch pad is a seperate part that plugs in clock (also called the oven control,or eoc..electronic oven control) then just the touch pad can be replaced,on certain brands or even some models within a brand the touch pad is integrated into the clock/oven control or eoc in that case the complete touch pad/control asm. is what needs to be replaced

Hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

My oven keeps randomly beeping and flashing F-1 recently. When I push cancel it stops, sometimes for an hour and sometimes for a week. I have tried to reset by turing circuit on and off, but problem does...

Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.

The lights on the front panel are flashing

Try flipping the breaker off for several minutes. This may reset the electronic glitch the dishwasher is having. If that does not work you can try to remove the ribbon cable from the touch pad and clean it with an eraser. Often times this will fix this type of issue. If that does not work, the touch pad would probably need to be replaced.

F1 error code and beeping on a ge doubleoven

Hello there:
How to test many brands of Ranges that are flashing a F1 fault code: You have either a bad ERC (clock) or a bad touch pad.
  1. Disconnect power to stove
  2. Gain access to the back of the clock (electronic range control or ERC).
  3. Unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC. This will be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide.
  4. Make sure everything is clear and will not short out when power is turned back on.
  5. Turn power back on to stove.
  6. Watch for the F1 and listen for the beep.
  7. If you get the F1 and beep, replace the ERC.
  8. If after approx. 30 minutes you do NOT get the F1 and hear the beep, replace the touch pad.
    NOTE: Some models incorporate the touch pad and the clock as one part. * We have seen a few of the newer Maytag ranges with a F1 fault code and the problem was the oven temp sensor, check carefully the wires to and from the oven temp sensor!!

Error code F1

Error code F1 is for a defective touch pad or membrane (usually the touch pad). In this case you will need replace touch pad or membrane. It seems that water entered the touch pad during the self cleaning process, remove the touch pad and try to dry it. Good luck !!
