2 THINGS COME TO MINE EASY CHECKS , MAKE SURE THE DOOR IS CLOSING PROPERLY AND THE DOOR SWITCH IS MAKING UP WELL AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE 110VOLTS LEAVING THE BREAKER AND @ THE DISHWASHER CONNECTION IF IT HAS A RECEPTACLE ON THE DISHWASHER END TRY TO PLUG IN ANOTHER DEVICE SUCH AS A DRILL OR SAW OR OTHER APP, TO SEE IF IT WILL RUN THIS IS A BETTER CK THAN A METER BECAUSE IT PROVES IT IS PASSING CURRENT AS WELL AS VOLTAGE , METERS ARE NONE LOAD DEVICES AND CAN FOOL YOU

My dishwasher will not work at all. Investigate these four areas if your dishwasher is not working at all:
Your dishwasher may not be receiving any power. It is somewhat difficult to check for power at the plug outlet because the plug for a dishwasher is usually behind the unit. You should make sure all the circuit breakers of your circuit breaker panel are in the correct positions, or check to make sure no fuses of your house fuse panel are blown.
A properly functioning door switch will shut your dishwasher off when the door is opened. A defective door switch may not allow your dishwasher to operate at all. Examine the door switch and test it. If it is inoperable, it will have to be replaced.
Cycle Selector Switch
It isn't very common, but it is still possible that your dishwasher's cycle selector switch has become defective. Test the switch to determine if it is the cause of your problem. Replace it with a new one if it is.
Your dishwasher timer will not function if its motor is defective. And if your timer is not functioning properly, then the dishwasher itself will not function properly. Test your dishwasher's timer motor, and if it is broken, you can replace either the entire timer assembly or just the timer motor.

These control boards do not have fuses on them. I opened mine up when the front panel touch pad stopped working and the LED indicators were anemic. This is a sign of the ribbon cable connections have oxidized. The ribbon cable connects the touch pad to the control board.
Others have written up nice solutions on similar Maytag diswashers with the touch pad.
The previous expert shows that you can diagnose this by using a 10k resistor and connecting pin 6 and 10 on the ribbon cable connector and it will start the dishwasher (you have to trip the door handle and carefully do this with the power on). This proves that the control board is fine and ribbon cable connections are the problem. Don't forget to quickly trip the door latch once the dishwasher starts.
My solution was to purchase a contact cleaner called Deoxit. You can order from RadioShack.com or get at Frys. Spray Deoxit on both the ribbon cable end (removed) and into the connector on the control board. Deoxit removed the oxide on the connectors. The twin pack Deoxit spray comes with a solution that helps prevent corrosion. I am 1 day into the successful repair of this model Maytag dishwasher.
Previous people have suggested heat and steam get into the control board and oxidize this connector. I notice on the top right where the control board sits, there is a gap to allow steam to get into the door/control board area. I used bathroom caulk to seal both sides of the door to hopefully prevent further corrosion.
