Question about Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher
We have a Maytag MDBH950AWS Dishwasher that won't start. The only button that lights up is the "Heavy Wash" cyle. When this button is pressed, the "Heated Dry", "Sanatize" and "Extra Rinse" lights up. The dishwasher doesn't start. Eventually all of the lights go out. No other buttons light up when pressed.

I would press the Medium/Light wash buttons and the Heavy LED lit up and the DW would run only the Hevy cycle. I replaced the front panel assembly to fix. I found corrosion on the end of the ribbon cable (black gunk that formed on thecable from panel to circuit board and where it becomes exposed to air/water) and that created a short between the other buttons/functions. I tried cleaning the corrosion/gunk away and ended up wiping the tiny little exposed wires away. I used a Q-tip, but niether rubbing alcohol or Nail polish remover (has acetione in it) helpded. Those cleaners and scratching with my finger nail removed the tiny wire tracks.

Disconnect the breaker in your fuse panel. Pull the door apart (by removing the screws) and at the bottom you will see the wiring harness going through the door.
Where the wiring harness goes inside the door it constantly rubs against a sheet metal "knife" that will eventually cut the insulation on the wires and they will short to ground. The one or two illuminated LED's on the panel indicate which wires are shorted to ground. Fix the wires with solder and heat shrink and add extra protection from the knife.
If this hasn't fried your control panel, you're lucky.

I have the same dishwasher, it is a piece of **** from the factory. they screwed up and we are stuck with this very poorly designed washer. What happens is condensation gets into the control board and shorts it out. I have replaced it once before and now the second one went out. it you take the control board off you will see water in the circuitry.
