Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the control board that is bad and yes these parts are covered less than 5 to 7 years of warranty, for this you have to contact manufacturer. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The auto wash/start/delay start touch controls will not respond...all other control panel area's are working, but I can not get it to start.

It is possible the button contact has moisture or some contaminent. Best to open the control panel and check under the button. Take photos as you go along to make sure it all fits together. You can check the part locations in this diagram.

Control panel lights blinking

I have the same dishwasher with the same problem, try pushing the delay/resume button, then the drain/off button. When the lights go off start your wash cycle.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Dishwasher not working (Model MDB5601A)

While I am not directly aware of the controls on the dishwasher I'd unplug it for a minute or two to see if the control reboots (for lack of a better term) I've seen many electroic devices that on occasion have this type of problem and simply taking the power from it may correct it.
I hope this helps,

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

Maytag quiet series

My manual says: 1- Close door. 2- Select cycle. 3- Press delay. 4- Push Start/Cancel. (As soon as start/cancel is pressed, the flashing should stop and the delay time will begin).
