I have a Maytag dishwasher MDBM601AWW. The control lock on the control pad will not unlock. I replaced the electronic control board and it worked for one wash. Control lock engaged again. I shut down the power and pressed the control lock for 3 seconds as directed by the owners manual. No luck. Please help Rich.

The control panel is flashing a L. What does this mean?


Hi.

The model indicated: MDB5651A does not have display and the error codes are shown like flashing lights. If that is your model and problem please just tell me what lights are flashing.

In Maytag with display instead, the L on display means that the machine is control locked. That is not an error message, but a code telling that the machine has been locked by the user (probably by mistake since you are the user).

I quote from Maytag technical documentation:

? If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the controls have been locked, the indicator light next to lock graphic will flash five times. On selected models with a countdown display, the display will flash the symbol "L" simultaneously with lock indicator.

? This option does not lock the door, only the dishwasher controls.

To set :
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked.

To Cancel Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off as instructed.

Try pressing the the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect power. Connect back and try again unlock (power off does not remove the lock). If that still does not work there may be a faulty part. In that case turn appliance off and give me the full model number.

Start holding down the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. In normal conditions that is enough to get rid of the L and of control lock.

If you need parts or schematics see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To unlock the controls press and hold the HEATED DRY button for 20seconds. If the problme returns then only option is touch pad replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Maytag quietseries300 dishwasher in panel lock - can't unlock


depress the lock emblem on the touch pad and hold it down for 5-10 seconds. If the light lock does not go off then that means your LED touch pad is defective. Check in your owners manual for any warranty information on your touch pad. Most maytag offers 5 yr limited warranty on electronic parts which covers your touch pad.
thanks.

Can you send me directions on how to replace the control panel on my maytag dishwasher MDB5601AWW?


Take a screwdriver and remove the inner door panel. The control board has a cover over it with a 1/4" screw holding it in place. Get to the control board and put some eyes on it. Make sure the ribbon cable from the touchpanel is not damaged and well seated into the control board connector. If all looks good, use the techsheet MDBM601AWW to check the touchpanel continuity (tech sheet page 5, and you will need a multimeter to do this). If the panel tests ok you will need a control board 99003431


But it is more likely the touch panel 99003381
