Question about Maytag Dishwashers
We had the same issue with our Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher. The Start/cancel button would not work all the time. We ended up removing the front panel from the machine and on the backside of the panel there is a plastic ultra thin ribbon cable that runs from the computer box to the push button control panel. We wiggled the ribbon cable and the start button began to work, but only if the ribbon cable was held in a certain position. So we super glued the cable in that position and it's been working consistently now.
Upon closer inspection the ribbon cable appeared to have 3 or 4 very tiny dark spots on the wires.
That would indicate to me that somehow moisture slowly eroded the tiny wires and bending the cable made the connections touch again, but for how long it will work like this is anyone's guess.
Also, it appears that the ribbon cable is permanently attached to the push button control panel. So you can't replace the ribbon cable itself without buying the hole front panel.

I have a Quiet Series 200 and I had the same problem. I changed the handle mechanism in mine and it still is acting the same. It works on sunny, clear days and not on humid or rainy days.
