Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5601AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Maytag MDB5601AWB Does not start

Have had this dishwasher from new for a little over a year. Had no problems previously. When I close the door it appears to lock as normal. I push the button for the wash cycle (normal) and it lights up. But when I push "Start" nothing happens. The light does not come on, the machine doesn't start (no sound) and the "washing" light does not come on.

Not a power problem because the "normal" light is working. Also seems not to be a door lock problem. Have tried unplugging and letting rest and then replugging--didn't help.

Trying to determine if there is an easy (and cheap) fix before I call in the repairman.

Thanks

SOURCE: Control buttons don't work, Help.

donnson, sounds more like the touch panel shorted or stuck keypads. You can remove the touch panel ribbon from the control board and try to clean it with an eraser. You will need to remove the torx screws and remove the inside panel. See if it comes back to life. Behind the toe-panel on the bottom, there should be a tech sheet showing how to check the key pad. The key pad and control board are warranteed for 5 years on this model, parts only. Catriver..post back.

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

Led wont light up. no power to dishwasher


Measure for 115 volts AC at the junction box behind the front lower panel where the incoming power connects to the washer wiring. If ok, you will need a wiring diagram of the washer to go further.

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Keypad does not work


Time to buy a new one I guess.
Go check the fuse braker, it tripped probably.
Did you close the door properly , push it hard with a slam. It will start working. Jiggle the float inside the up and down.

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
