SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher model # MDB5130AWW

I had a similar issue with my MDB5130AWW. The Wash was interupted and wouldn't come back on. Not knowing where to start I read some other solutions on this site and started by opening the bottom cover. Thats where I found a 4 page diagnostic / Electrical Schematic. Start with the Sales Demo mode of pressing the Rinse button 5 times within 5 seconds. I had to do it twice before the washer came "alive". I was estatic after reading about the $100 mainboard cost and maybe more for other parts. The document has other test and what different keypads mean when flashing. Thankfully I didn't have to go that far.

SOURCE: Maytag MDBH950AWS Dishwasher won't start

We have a Maytag Dishwasher that won't start. The only button that lights up is the "Heavy Wash" cyle. When this button is pressed, the "Heated Dry", "Sanatize" and "Extra Rinse" lights up. The dishwasher doesn't start. Eventually all of the lights go out. the buttons start/cancel do not light up.could you in some way help?
Thank you.

SOURCE: The heated dry and clean lights flash together

I had this same problem. I read on another blog that the manual recommends that you turn the power off to dishwasher. When you turn the washer back on, the lights still flash but then push the off button. The lights stopped flashing.

Mine was doing the same thing and I just pressed and held down the heated dry button until the light went off. Then I was able to start my machine as usual. Hope this works for you.

My maytag W10199645 dishwasher won't start


Maytag model w10199645 was starting intermittently, and sometimes only when we pressed and held the start button for 10-15 seconds. Finally tonight it just wouldn't start, period. I unplugged it for 15 minutes, then used the Heated Dry/Normal/Heated Dry/Normal and it started back up on its own.

Brand new Matytag MDB7749AWB Dishwasher does not work correctly. As soon as the power was turned on, all three cycle indicator lights ('Wash', 'Dry', and 'Clean') came on and always...


Try putting the unit into a test mode. This my clear your issues otherwise call for service.

One of two ways to do this.
In standby (no lights) Press the combination of buttons:
hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash
All lights will come on and the washer will run a test cycle anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
If that button comb doesn't work use:
heated dry > sanitize > heated dry > sanitize > heated dry

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

All the lights are flashing on Maytag Quiet Series 300


Try pressing heated wash, heated dry, then heated wash, heated dry. It should reset it. Also try pressing and holding the cancel button for 5 seconds to see if that works if the other doesnt.
