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).

Quiet series 300, Model # MDBS561AWS. Power to control panel comes on. (lights up), But will not start.

If you are able to select a wash program but Start does not function, then most likely the door switch is not making proper contact. Check the door switch item 4 in this diagram.

I have power at the connection underneath but nothing works on the control panel no lights no anything and it doesent run

Incoming power goes through the door switch first,then to the control panel.
Your door switch attached to the door latch may be defective.
If the door switch checks good on a meter then the control board is bad.

Power not coming on

When a dishwasher appears to be dead, many times the door latch is to blame. On some models, that latch has a safety interlock switch directly controls the power, so that when the door is opened during a wash cycle, power is removed.

The problem is that the interlock switch can fail or get un-aligned, so the dishwasher does not get power.

Depending on your skill level, you can investigate the problem, using a phillips screw driver to open up the latch so you can see the interlock.
Good Luck!

Maytag mdb6650aww dishwasher is dead. touchpad won't light up. Looking for most probable reasons

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.

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.
