Question about Maytag Dishwashers
The Control Touch Panels like to fail on may brands - especially Maytag. They are sensitive to humidity - and a lot have the vents out the front - right by the control panel.
Please reply using "continue with this expert" with your exact model # so I can directly link you to your replacement part and you can decide if it is worth repairing.
Most control Panels run in the $175 to $250 range depending on age and functions.

Hello. I can help you isolate the problem. You have already taken the first steps, which is excellent. Here are all of the possible causes:
Power from the house
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
