Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working but now the lights barely light up in most cases. My question is, is the main problem that flat ribbon or is is soemthing more serious. Where can I get this replacement ribbon. Verty frustrated as my warranty just expired and don't want to pay for expensive parts when I just paid $500 for the unit a year ago.

You may want to check the warranty iif it is a maytag or whirlpool, some have a 5 year warranty on the control and board. If not you can go to www.searspartsdirect.com to look up the parts you may need to repair unit yourself. Get the part numbers and check if there is a local appliance part store, sears charges alot for frieght. You can also call the customer service number of the manufacter of your dishwaher and ask for a concession for parts and maybe labor for servicer to repair. Some manufacters are real good about helping their customers.

I have an rca L42WD22YX5 that just went to a blank screen yesterday. The screen keeps reading unusable signal. It is only 14 months old.


i had this happen last year, now my tv is messed up again. when we had the problem with the unusable signal, the tv repair shop told us it was the main motherboard that caused it. ended up paying $250.00 to have it fixed. Now, our tv is broke again, this morning turned it on, got the green light, then just started flashing red, hasnt worked any at all today, reset it and everything. My suggestion, if you can afford to buy a new tv, do it, because I called the repair shop again this morning about the new problem, they said after the 1 year warrentt from rca runs out all they do is tear up. My tv isnt even 4 years old, bought it at the end of 2007, now its tore up twice, going to purchase a samsung in the morning from brandsmart. Good Luck!

Same thing happened today


with the door open when your dishwasher was working normally Did the lights light up on the keypad? I am wondering because if the answer is the keypad only worked with the door closed .....you possibly have a bad door switch.


or it could be a blown fuse inside the dishwasher. are any lights on at all?
