Amana ADB1500AW dishwash won't start cold

Amana 24 in. ADB1500AW Built-in Dishwasher will not start if it is colder than 80degrees internally within the control panel.

Don't ask how I came across this but I have found that if I put a space-heater up to the control panel for about 5 minutes to heat it up, it will then light up and start working fine but it's dead as a doornail otherwise if the unit control panel is any cooler.

Is this possibly a cold-solder or something?

    Had a repairman come out and he had to replace the front control panel.

push the button for a different option: it's like a radio button in Hypercard: one must be chosen, and choosing one will "unselect" the others.

The faceplate sometimes does not respond when I touch it, or if it does It may not let me cahgne the settings... Plus when the lights do come on the dishwasher won't start when I press the start button. ...

I also own a ADB1500AWB. The switch membrane failed within 30 days of purchase. It was replaced under warranty. The technician said this part fails very often. I bought an extended warranty.
It failed again on 9/3. As of 10/13, the part is still on back order.

In any case, buy the longest extended warranty possible. Good luck.

Does not clean well and leaves detergent residue even after several cycles. Tried changing from detergent tabs to gel, no real change.


The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.
