Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS intermittent button problems and incomplete wash cycle. The buttons work sometimes ... sometimes not. We also have experienced incomplete wash cycles when the buttons do let us start a cycle. Sometimes it completes correctly. Suspect control board, as I expect a membrane failure to cause incomplete cycle unless it is making a Stop/Cancel contact by itself. Can anyone chime in on thoughts?

SOURCE: Most of buttons on touch pad are not working.

Gee thanks McGyver, I'll get right on that and after I'll use any remaining parts, a comb and of course a paperclip to build a rocket. Have anything a bit more practical for the rest of us on planet earth?

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not start. All option buttons

Hello, I am sorry that your dish washer isn't working. One of the biggest problems with these new dishwasher is they install the control on top of the door and the operational circuit board below the control panel. Inside the door is acceptable to moisture which creates all kinds of problems. It not the spray arm or the float, or the pump. it is where they put the circuitry to control the dish washing machine.


I hoping that all you will need is a push button control strip for this dish washer. moisture get in the micro switches and make them inoperable. These button in the control strip are hermetically sealed against moisture....for a while.



Remember, it depends on how long has the dishwasher been working and what will be the cost to repair your dishwasher. Dishwasher are really good for 10 to 12 years of service. I worked on a Kenmore that was 25 years old. I told the lady of the house it is time for a new dishwasher. I could have repaired it, but really it not worth it when it is this old. GB...stewbison

SOURCE: Control buttons don't work, Help.

donnson, sounds more like the touch panel shorted or stuck keypads. You can remove the touch panel ribbon from the control board and try to clean it with an eraser. You will need to remove the torx screws and remove the inside panel. See if it comes back to life. Behind the toe-panel on the bottom, there should be a tech sheet showing how to check the key pad. The key pad and control board are warranteed for 5 years on this model, parts only. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

I have a maytag mdb8951aws dishwasher for the past 3 months of so I has not been cleaning the dishes worth a ****. Leave residue on then and a white film. Any ideas what may be wrong


Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have the same problem but now on all cycles - to get it off normal and try the other ones, open the door, hold down the 'normal' button for three seconds, and then at least try the other settings temporarily.

Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cleaner.
