Blinking lights, unresponsive

Several lights are blinking on the control panel of my Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB5130AWB. The arrow by "Clean" The arrow by 6HR and the light above "Rinse Only" . They won't stop blinking. And the other buttons on the panel do not respond. I tried unplugging the unit, hoping it would reset, but it didn't.

I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.

    I'm afraid pushing all buttons twice in succession had no effect. Still blinking, even after shutting off power at the fuse panel.

Called Maytag repair, they looked at unit, tried to reset it and said it was very likely the entire control panel unit had corroded and would need to be replaced.. Cost, approx $300 parts + labor. The current model of the same featured dishwasher was on sale for $499 ... I bought a new unit, and actually upgraded to the top of the line model in stainless steel for $759 plus $60 installation. Happy with new unit, very quiet,

MODEL DWF31 START PROGRAMME DISPLAY SHOWS 2H AND STAYS ON 2H ANY IDEAS


Hello. First, try to reset the control board. There are 2 buttons with arrows underneath. Press and hold them both for several seconds, maybe a little longer--this will perform a reset on the control board. See if that clears up the problem. Also, are there any lights blinking? Dishwashers will flash error codes(in binary format) by blinking certain lights in a pattern(i.e. The "sensing" light will blink 2 or 3 times, then the "cycle complete" light will blink 2-3-4 times--something like that) It could be any combination of lights depending on the component that has failed or has a problem. Components can be the drain pump, main wash motor, float switch(if present), heater circuit, inlet water valve, flood switch(if present), etc...

Dishwasher control panel unresponsive


OK I am not an expert but I have spent the last two weeks learning about and fixing my dishwasher! Hopefully I can save you a headache. Try the following:

* Flip the switch off and on in your breaker/circuit box for 10-15 minutes. May reset your washer.
* If that doesn't work, try running diagnostic/reset cycles by pressing heated dry -normal- heated dry or heated dry-sanitize-heated dry in sequence. If the cycles run fine, you will rule out a power, latch, motor/drying issue. It also may (hopefully) reset your system.
* If normal function still does not resume after that, make sure your power (from the breaker box) is turned off and unscrew (with a star-shaped screwdriver bit - check your car emergency kit or toolbox, you may find you have it) and open the front button control panel and check all connections. Try carefully unplugging and replugging wires and look for any corrosion/moisture on the circuit board.
* If everything looks good but that does not work, test the circuit board by unplugging the green ribbon cable from the control panel, reassembling with the ribbon cable unplugged, flipping your circuit back on and then closing the dishwasher door. If the drain motor runs, it will show you that there is still some function with the circuit board. Although it doesn't rule out the circuit board completely, it will point to a most likely control (button) panel issue and try replacing that. If the drain test does NOT run, it may be the circuit board that needs to be replaced.

There may be some additional instructions specific to your model hidden in an envelope behind the kickplate of your washer.

Hopefully some of that helps!

Control panel lights blinking


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.
