I pressed heavy wash 3 times and then start to make it perform a field test. It tested fine, but it stuck at 61 minutes for an hour while I was testing auto clean. Another thread indicated that the controller cable interface was getting moist.

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.

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

SOURCE: Regarding Maytag Dishwasher, model # mdb4651aww3.

I have same problem with my Maytag. Had a repair guy come out and he said it's the 'controller card', not the button touchpanel. The controller card is $127 and not in stock and there's a 'several month wait'. I'm not going to wait, going to buy something used for less than the price of a new controller card. Maytag's quality has really deteriorated in the past few years. They used to have a 5yr warranty on pretty much everything - now it's only 1yr. (and of course, mine failed just a few weeks after the 1 yr time.

Maytag dishwasher MDB8959AWS2 blinks 7 times and will not work, what is the code to reset.


Try the instructions listed at this site. If the problem still occurs after the reset it is usually the heater element that might be faulty.

The dishwasher will not Start and the Clean Light keeps blinking


Hi,

This blinking indicates the water did not heat up properly in the heated wash part of the cycle. I have put together some instructions on resetting the control so you can use the machine and some details on why it might have happened. Follow the link and if you have any trouble let me know.

Sounds like you have a bad Control Board

http://www.partstore.com/Part/Maytag/Maytag/MDB6600AWW/Maytag/Maytag/99003160/New.aspx

But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews

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.

My maytag Jet Clean EQ Plus seems to be stuck on the three minute delay


Hi 9897,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The red light for the three minute delay is staying on and you can't get a cycle to start

First try to reset the d/w. Turn off the power at the circuit breakers for ten minutes. This useually solves the problem. If not, you're likely looking at a bad control board.

Feel free contact me again!

Status Lights Blinking


status lights blinking is trying to tell you something in the dishwasher is bad,go to your owners manual to see the fault codes first,then you can try turning the breaker off 30 seconds an on to see if it resets its self,if that does not work i think you might have a bad mother board,thanks-mike
