Maytag dishwasher error code 96?

This morning, the lights on the control panel were flashing and the panel had number 96 on it. Now, there are no lights, nothing!

    Actually, the code might have been 98, I am not positive. I did check the breaker, which was not tripped. I even flipped it off and then back on. Still nothing. Can anyone tell me if there is a fuse that may have gone bad and if so, where I would find it? This dishwasher is only going on 6 years, I can't afford to buy a new one yet.

Try killing power to the unit, typically this is at the breaker box but from time to time it may be connected to another circuit in the kitchen that may have GFCI circuit. Make sure the GFCI is not tripped killing power.

    The dishwasher is on its own breaker. It was not tripped. I even tripped it manually, then flipped it back on, with no luck. Thanks for the try, though!

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

I have the same dishwasher with the same problem, try pushing the delay/resume button, then the drain/off button. When the lights go off start your wash cycle.

SOURCE: MDBH945AWW maytag dishwasher panel lights will not

These control boards do not have fuses on them. I opened mine up when the front panel touch pad stopped working and the LED indicators were anemic. This is a sign of the ribbon cable connections have oxidized. The ribbon cable connects the touch pad to the control board.
Others have written up nice solutions on similar Maytag diswashers with the touch pad.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t387192-maytag_quiet_series_300_no_power_touch

The previous expert shows that you can diagnose this by using a 10k resistor and connecting pin 6 and 10 on the ribbon cable connector and it will start the dishwasher (you have to trip the door handle and carefully do this with the power on). This proves that the control board is fine and ribbon cable connections are the problem. Don't forget to quickly trip the door latch once the dishwasher starts.

My solution was to purchase a contact cleaner called Deoxit. You can order from RadioShack.com or get at Frys. Spray Deoxit on both the ribbon cable end (removed) and into the connector on the control board. Deoxit removed the oxide on the connectors. The twin pack Deoxit spray comes with a solution that helps prevent corrosion. I am 1 day into the successful repair of this model Maytag dishwasher.

Previous people have suggested heat and steam get into the control board and oxidize this connector. I notice on the top right where the control board sits, there is a gap to allow steam to get into the door/control board area. I used bathroom caulk to seal both sides of the door to hopefully prevent further corrosion.

Can not start a wash cycle


Hello. From the symptoms you describe, the problem might be a defective control panel. First, make sure the control lock is not enabled!! Look for a button that has a "key" symbol or the word "lock" underneath it. Touch and hold for 5 seconds until the lock is disabled. The part numbers for the different styles of the dishwasher for the control panel are:
BLACK--W10329522
WHITE--W10329521
BISQUE--W10329523
STAINLESS--W10329524
The touch control panels can become damaged from a variety of causes. Power surges(Have you had an outage in the last 3-4 weeks!?), defective components, moisture invasion, etc. are the most common culprits. If a button is "electrically stuck"(i.e. the computer thinks you're still pressing it), nothing else will work until the button is released. It is just like any other appliance with physical buttons(soft touch for example on a microwave or range). Now, if the dishwasher actually starts when you press the start button, then the problem lies with the main control board(part# W10352588)--remember--a stuck button will prevent any other action until it's released. The troubleshooting on this unit is relatively complicated--when diagnostic mode is entered, the clean light will flash a certain number of times for the first part of an error code(function code, then it will flash again a certain number for the second part, problem code,(ex. blink 6 times, wait, blink 1 time). There is an error code chart that has the meanings to the different sequences--(ex. a 6-1 is inlet water valve(function), and then "no water"(problem). You press the start button to advance to the next stored error code. Power off the unit to go back to normal mode. If you are hesitant about performing any of the troubleshooting, call for service! I hope this helps you!

The control panel is flashing a L. What does this mean?


Hi.

The model indicated: MDB5651A does not have display and the error codes are shown like flashing lights. If that is your model and problem please just tell me what lights are flashing.

In Maytag with display instead, the L on display means that the machine is control locked. That is not an error message, but a code telling that the machine has been locked by the user (probably by mistake since you are the user).

I quote from Maytag technical documentation:

? If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the controls have been locked, the indicator light next to lock graphic will flash five times. On selected models with a countdown display, the display will flash the symbol "L" simultaneously with lock indicator.

? This option does not lock the door, only the dishwasher controls.

To set :
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked.

To Cancel Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off as instructed.

Try pressing the the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect power. Connect back and try again unlock (power off does not remove the lock). If that still does not work there may be a faulty part. In that case turn appliance off and give me the full model number.

Start holding down the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. In normal conditions that is enough to get rid of the L and of control lock.

If you need parts or schematics see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.
