My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again

your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

try pressing stop or cancel button for 10 full seconds. If this does not work, unplug the machine for 10 minutes. While unpluged, press and hold cancel or stop but for 10 seconds, then plug machine back in. If it still does not work, test the door switch with an ohmmeter to make sure the door switch is not faulty.

Kenmore dishwasher blinking light

I have a solution. For Kenmore Dishwashers begining with model 587 and the flashing washing will not start.
inside the front door there are two black and two white wires that lead to the handle. this connection is an on/off saftey for the door latch and if wet will short. The light is flashing because the machine thinks the door is open.

these connections on my machine are very loose. a needle nose pliers to tighten the crimps clean the prongs recconect hard reset at breaker box and you should be ready to go.

Hi generally if the door is not closed on a dishwasher all functions are disabled, This is for saftey. Hence this is a cut out switch operated by the door. Try holding the door shut and seeing if the functions come to life
