    I am having the same problem. My dishwasher is only a year & a half old. I can change the cycle and those light up fine. It won't do anything when pressing the start button. I check the door switch and it's fine. I put in a new CPU (at a cost of $96) and that didn't fix it. I went to look for the tech sheet under the toe isn't there. If anyone has a tech sheet that they can fax me or e-mail me I would appreciate it. (fax 410-374-1537, email If anyone has any other ideas I'd sure appreciate that also.

    Maytag dishwasher (model mdbtt60aww)

    The lights for heavy wash, light wash and rinse only light up when you press them. The light for normal wash and start (the two I REALLY need) will not light up. I can select heavy wash, but it will not start when I press start. Course, the dishwasher is now full and needs to be run! I am not a Ms. Fixit by any stretch of the imagination. Any advice?

If you can select different cycles such as rinse only and that light up and then if you change it to normal cycle and it light up,then that tells me you touch pad is working,Check your door switches if those are good and your touch pad is responding, i would replace cpu board.If you remove the kick plate there should be a tech sheet there you can put unit into diagnostic mode with a certain key dance if your touch pad is responding.

I had the same problem with mine only after around 1 year of service. luckily i had a 2-10 warranty and it was covered. technician came out and to me he wasnt a technician. he was a parts replacer. i was assuming since it was under warranty he just replaced the keyboard, the cpu, and about 2 days of "troubleshooting" as he called it. I probably could have just gotten a new dishwasher for all the time and parts he replaced on it. Now im having problems with the latch handle that is broken. $20 for a piece of 4 inches of plastic. I think this dishwasher is just a common dishwasher for contractors to install in new homes.

Maytag MDB4651AWS Dishwasher will not start.

Do you ever hear the fill solenoid click on to begin the filling. That is the first thing that has to occur. The water supply generally connects right to that solenoid. Ohm out the solenoid coil. ( breaker power off)

Maytag dishwasher mdb7100aws is flashing clean-lightwash-heated dry

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWS which suddenly started blinking the following LEDs: Clean, Rinse Only, Regular Wash, Tough Scrub and Heated dry. Tried cycling the breaker, no help. Tried the key sequences in the troubleshooting sheet behind the kick panel, no help. Then happened to press the Drain/Off button twice. All LEDs went out and am now on my second successful load, fingers crossed. Suspect the control board got latched up somehow.

Quiet series 300, Model # MDBS561AWS. Power to control panel comes on. (lights up), But will not start.

If you are able to select a wash program but Start does not function, then most likely the door switch is not making proper contact. Check the door switch item 4 in this diagram.

My maytag quiet series 200 wont do anything when I press the start button. there are no lights. I have tried tripping the circuits?

Mine would not start, and could not set any options. I read online to try resetting by pressing Heated Wash, then Heated Dry, then repeat both. I did it and my machine cleared and worked fine. Give it a try!

Wont start..light wash lights up and delay wash lights up but start button wont work. replaced handle and it worked one time

There are two micro-switches just inside the handle mechanism that apply power when the door latches. You need to remove the interior panel to access. Hope this helps!
