Whirlpool microwave MH3185XP: cancel button does not work

The touchpad all works fine and the oven works but the cancel button won't work. It has a small lock next to it that is not explained in the manual. The question is how to activate the cancel key? I have tried several buttons: holding them in 5 seconds but no dice.
Thanks for any insights you can provide.

The symbol next to the Cancel pad means it would also be used to turn the Child Lock feature on and off.

But as it is, you have a failed membrane keypad.

Luckily, on these models you can replace the control panel frame with keypad all as one unit without doing any peel & stick.

Just remove your circuit board and drop it in the new frame.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

(There are 12 models which start with MH3185XP, so check the tag on your oven for the full model number.)

See reference number 3 on diagram number 3.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the 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.

User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Ge microwave HVM1540DN1BB button control pad stopped working


I am not familiar with the Whirlpool microwaves; however, I just had the same problem with an LG over the range microwave. Several of the positions on the touchpad quit responding to touch. In our case, it was the touchpad itself that was the problem.

The touchpad on our microwave was held in place with adhesive. We pulled it off and replaced it with a new touchpad. Everything works now. The only complication is getting to the connector which carries the signals from the touchpad to the microwave controls. We had to remove and dissassemble the door to get to that connector.

The touchpad cost about $26.00.

Have a Whirlpool microwave oven, model MH3185XP. Just stopped wor


In some Whirlpool models, there are more than one fuse, and two or more thermal devices which can interrupt power to the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

The touchpad on my microwave has quit working.


possibly a stuck button which would mean a replacement pad, do the buttons bleep when you push them do some work and others dont its quite common normally its the start button or the cancel which goes(due to constant pushing) and it causes the error alternatively its a possible logic board fault which is far more expensive to replace!

Whirlpool GH6177XPS touchpad


jm...I'm guessing you are not able to see the numbers in the timer portion but that it will accept keyboard commands. This sounds like the main board is going and the drivers are not working or it might just be that the display is bad...generally these are replaced as a unit.
