The start button light is blue, on the screen is beeping the key. i can't use any of program. it shows one minute till the end of drying. what to do?


The exact definition of this error when the clean light is blinking means that your dishwasher is failing to heat the water in an allotted time. This problem can occur on Whirlpool, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Jenn-Air, and Maytag dishwashers. The error can be caused by numerous issues but the first thing you want to do is reset the control board.
-To reset the control board press: high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash. If you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.
-All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.
-If the control board doesn't reset, it's likely that you've just got a faulty control board and the control board will need to be ordered and replaced.
The next step in this process is to start a new cycle and see what happens. If the error code returns, then you'll want to reset the board again and check several things. The most common reasons for this error is because the water coming from your household is just too cold. The dishwasher is expecting 110 degree water to enter your dishwasher, so if your pipes are cold, the water may only come in luke warm. To correct this issue, just run your faucet next to the dishwasher until the water coming out is hot. On another note, make sure the dishwasher is washing with good water pressure. You can put a cup in the upper rack facing upwards and run a cycle to see if it will fill within 10 minutes of starting the cycle. If it doesn't fill with water then you know that the dishwasher isn't producing enough pressure which, in turn, will cause the water to not heat. You'd want to take your pump and motor assembly apart to clean inside if you had a loss of pressure.
You could also have a failed component including a faulty heater, control board, or high limit thermostat. You'd need to uninstall your dishwasher, disconnect power and lay it on it's back to check the resistance of the heater as well as the resistance of the high limit thermostat to confirm if they were bad or good. You should get tangible reading of between 5 and 30 ohms on the heater if it's good and less than one ohm on the high limit thermostat. If both of those devices check good, then replace the control board because that's the one device you cannot test.

Trying to find the heater circuit


You can, first, meter the hi-limit thermostat for continuity. Then, meter the heater element for Ohm's resistance. If either test bad, replace them, if neither test bad, replace the main control board.

Where is the Manual Heater Reset Switch on an Amana A/C and Heater Unit Model number PTH093B35AJ? The unit has several stickers that state it has a "Manual Heater Reset Switch".


Almost certainly it is a bad relay on the circuit board. Sometimes you can slap the side of the unit by the control box to temporarily unstick the relay, after which the heat will come on for a cycle or two. There are two relays on the circuit board marked "heater 1" and "heater 2". You can order a new circuit board for about $100 or replace the relays at $4 apiece (order online from Digi-Key, requires solder connections). Part number JTN1a-PA-F-DC5V.

Why dishwasher not heating water


I have same brand dishwasher as you but different model, suggest it would still have the same fault as mine. I searched for the faulty solder join on my circuit board as per the forum and soldered the area but still would not heat. I spoke to local parts supplier who stated that heater element is not the problem, it would definitely be the circuit board. I took the circuit board to them and paid for a changeover board (approx $90 AUSTRALIAN). I went home and installed the circuit board in the dishwasher door and started it up. It does not show start up settings on display as per normal but just start the dishwasher anyway and it resets the circuit board after running a complete wash cycle (any cycle will do, doesn't matter which one you choose). All worked well after that, no problems since replacement of board.

Resetting the board in dishwasher


If there is a procedure to reset your board it would be to remove power, then restore power to the dishwasher and press certain combination of buttons within certain number of seconds. As far as I remember that procedure was available and was described in tech documentation for Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid and Kenmore dishwashers. I don't recall such procedure for Maytags.
The tech documents are usually under the kick panel, which is under the dishwasher door.
The "hard" reset procedure for any control board would be the following sequence (standard electrical safety and common sense rules apply):
  • remove power (unplug, turn off circuit breaker, etc.)
  • access the control board; with Maytag dishwashers it would be inside the door
  • make a picture or descriptive list of all plugs and wires connected to the board so you could reconnect those later
  • make sure you don't have an electrical charge on yourself - touch the grounded part of the dishwasher, usually the frame
  • CAREFULLY (you can damage your board) disconnect all plugs and wires from the board
  • with a large flat blade screwdriver or any other metal tool insulated from your hand, briefly short the connectors on the board. If you can identify where the power wires connect to the board - short those between each other first.
  • put all plugs back using the picture or the description you've made before disconnecting; put the appliance back together. turn on the power.

Good luck,
