SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher will not start.

I had the same problem. The plastic wiring strip that connects the touchpad had corrosion from water. The panel would need to be replaced, because they don't sell the touchpad separately. (around $50 - $70 USD)

SOURCE: Green Lights flashing, Whirlpool D/Washer not responding

Well I contacted a couple of techy guys I know and they were not familiar with the dishwasher. I then called the outlet we had purchased from to see if they could refer us to a service technician. I explained what I wanted and the woman on the phone asked what the problem was - she then asked me to close the door of the dishwasher and hold down the start button for 30-40 seconds to see what happens, which I did. At about the 30 second mark the machine started. She said it was likely that someone had interrupted the last cycle and we had effectively reset it. It ran a further 30 seconds to complete that last part of the interrupted cycle and has been fine ever since. My wife took them a box of chocolates the next day. Shows to go ay? Kind regards Peter

SOURCE: My maytag dishwasher won"t start

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

First clean the drain filter pump assembly located inside the front bottom access panel. If the problem is still there after cleaning the drain filter assembly then it means the control board is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't start and start button doesn't light, but other buttons respond

I think you still have warranty, it sounds you have faulty control panel, even if it's new does not mean it is good.

Many electronically controlled appliances respond well to a simple reboot. Pull the plug and put it back in.

Maytag dishwasher Model MDB7749AWB won't start/respond

Either the start switch, the start relay, the wires between them, the wires to the motor, or an internal fuse inside the panel, or the door safety interlock could be the problem. Even, any combination of the above could cause this. This is a real troubleshooting problem. Are you game?

The heated dry and clean lights flash together

I had this same problem. I read on another blog that the manual recommends that you turn the power off to dishwasher. When you turn the washer back on, the lights still flash but then push the off button. The lights stopped flashing.
