Above is your link for your manuals, use these along with the DIY self help repair website below, to troubleshoot and hopefully repair the problem.

Now this fix below may not work, but it is always worth a try, if it fits the criteria. Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

    Is there a way to determine whether it's the touch pad (control panel) or the circuit board that needs to be replaced?

    have same dishwasher - won't start - most lights will light except it seems that 1 selection for each button doesn't light - makesme think it's a broken connection on the board

Duet washer stopped during wash cycle.


take off the panel below the door three screws and look for the tech sheet located on the right side. It will coach yoou thru the codes and common problems. Sounds like it may be the door swithch does it lock when you push the start? If not the door switch my guess would be a machine control. 877-262-1479 parts.

My Maytag NDB9601 will not start any cycle. You can select the cycle and the display will show the time, but the start and delay buttons, located on the front, not the top with the cycle buttons, will not...


Sounds like a possible door switch problem.

If you take that area of the door apart, check the ribbon cable for keypad. You can clean the connector with a pencil eraser.
