Question about Maytag Dishwashers
Hi, I have the same exact Dishwasher, and I totally understand when you decribe the handle is stuck in the up position. When I opened mine and looked at the mechanism from the inside, there is a torsion spring that allows the lock to activate when the door is shut. When the handle is pushed up to open, in normal operation, the handle stay's in place. When the door is shut, the handle springs and then snaps to a locked position. Can you turn off the electric to the washer from the circuit/breaker box and then try to pull down on the handle or push up.
Let me kmow what happens and add anything else to this post, and i'll try to re-create your problem on mine and try to reslove.

You will have to force the door open then replace the door switch assembly part number 99003347. Hope this helps. The door will be tricky to get open but keep working with the broken latch and it will eventually give way.

Sounds more like one of the door/latch switches is not closing properly and that is why you are not getting power to the control board. Look at the door striker first to see if it is ok (section 6; parts) Next, look at the door gasket and see if it is ok and not holding the door open.
