Question about Maytag MDB6650A Built-in Dishwasher
Neither my wife or I recall setting up the delay wash cycle last night before going to bed (although I suppose it is possible the delay was inadvertantly pressed while loading dishes). In any event, this morning it was obvious that the dishwasher had run (still warm - light steam coming out when we opened the door this morning), but there were no indicator lights on the control panel. There is clean water at the bottom of the machine (more than just residue - it's a significant amount). I reset the breaker a number of times and verified that there is no leakage or water on the floor but the machine just won't work and no indicator lights come on. The machine was only installed 2 weeks ago and has been working fine until now. Any help is much appreciated.

On this model the vent is open and shut by a wax motor. The vent should be closed tight during the entire wash cycle and the first 6 minutes of the drying cycle. Check the operation, make sure there is not a bunch of gunk restricting it. If you are handy with a meter check the resistance of the motor. It should read approx. 2100ohms. Another reason for leaking at the base is oversudzing. Also check the upper spray arm for cracks or splits shooting water into the vent area. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Food Deposits left on dishes
I had an old machine with a similiar problem & I found that food had somehow entered into the arm that spins & sprays out water. The food blocked somewhat the holes which of course means less cleaning.

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.
