We have a Frigidaire dishwasher there is a p/n: 154881401. Its only about 1 year old but all the light will light up when.pushed except the start and cancel button. Already tried cutting power.


Good Afternoon Denise, thanks for your post!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher will light up and will not start or cancel. This could be a possible problem with your keypad or control panel. In order to access which electrical component that could be causing the issue you would need to disassemble your dishwasher. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher that is 12 years old. The "clean" light on the control panel is on and the machine won't start it's cycle. Can I reset the control panel?


Hello Lisa. Go to your electrical panel for your home or apartment and turn off the circuit to the dishwasher for two full minutes. Check to be sure that you have turned off the correct circuit by looking to see that the "clean" light is off. After two full minutes turn the circuit back on. This alone may reset the machine and the control panel.

If it does not, then you will have a decision to making regarding repair VS replace. I always make this recommendation to my customers with any appliance over 5 years old. Replace it. In this instance, the new dishwashers use much less water, much less electricity, are much quieter, and they do a much better job. The advancements in dishwasher technology and design have been remarkable in the past three years. Joe

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a...


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the control panel lights up I have to assume that the black wire from the door switch has 120VAC on it.

There is also a turbidity sensor that can cause this: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4114286&image=1

I an not telling you to change parts. You really need to use a meter and follow 120VAC power to find out where it stops when it should be passing through a component.


If you can interpet this diagram....
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=1318099&pkw_=basket&model_id=5177084&NewWindow=1

I do not think at this point you need a control panel. It is possible but... the door switch and the thermistor will prevent the unit from starting.

This is ONE source for replacement parts.

There are numerous parts sources on line and locally.

Don't give up on your dishwasher too soon. 4 years is about mid life for your dishwasher.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

One year old Bosch dishwasher stop wrking.will not


Start with the basics: Check the status of the breaker and the electrical connections under the toe kick panel. If the unitis getting power, You may want to call the dishwasher helpline to see if it is a recalled model. A free replacement of the control panel circuit board is available for many of these, but if the power switch is the culprit, you will need to buy a replacement button.
I have written a guide to help with drainage issues. The helpline number is near the top. It is here. Thanks!
