    I have Maytag stainless steel Quiet series 400. Having the same problem. Cannot select program from control panel. The only thing I can select is heavy wash and that too goes on with sanitize option wether I want it or not. Thats the only thing I can select. And even after the heavy wash dishes coming out dirty. Need help and fast!

    I have the exact same problem.  I assume the electronic control will have to be replaced.  Is it a plug in and how do you get at in in the door? My model is PLD2850RDC0

    I have model MDB9750AWB it has the same problem called maytag they said to call my ESP from Home depot.  ESP said they can only repair it for 3 times with in 12 months then consider a replacement. Of course my ESP plan is up the end of this month so the next 2 repairs if needed would not be covered!!!  Frustrating paying over 700 for a malfunctioning dishwasher!!!
    MY last one last 10 years not a maytag!

    The controls do not work, only for "pots" selection works... which is the Highest setting possible(and it still does not clean good to boot!)

    Very displeased w/ this unit and paid $500.004 yrs ago

I own the same unit (PLD2850RDC1), with the very same problem. The part alone costs $118.95 on-line. It's called the "Touchpad Control Panel Insert" item #1036982 @ repairclinic.com. It is a plug in part and doesn't look complicated to replace. The problem remains that this part seems to fail repeatedly (see comments on- line). Our "Professional Series" Stainless Steel Fridgidaire Dishwasher is 3-years, 2-months old and we have decided to junk it - even when it works, it doesn't do a good job.

Electrolux dishwasher


Hello - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

I have a Bosch SHU9955US/14 (Integra) dishwasher. There is currently a 0 with and asterisk showing on the display and the unit will not run.

Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

I have the double drawer dishwasher. It is 3 years old. For about 1 year now one of the programmes - the second one along which is for quite dirty crockery and cutlery (programme is about 99 minutes) -...


A few things you could do.

Is this happening with both drawers.

Take a clean damp cloth and wipe the switches and the inside panel.

Get a couple of Finish dishwasher cleaner kits from the local woolworths/ safeway and run each drawer separately with one kit in each. You will have to select at least the 99 minute cycle.
This should help with having cleaner dishes.

Hope this helps. Please rate the solution if you find it helpful.

FDW60P dishwasher. Hotpoint Aquarius Control panel not working


I phoned Hotpoint. Was told to switch everything off and take the plug out for ten minutes - I didnt do that before, I just plugged it straight back in. I did this and was able to run the machine during the night on the programme I wanted. At least if it happens again I know what to do.. This solution will cost you nothing.

Hotpoint BF1620 Integrated dishwasher not working


Lets try the following hope this works

1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.
