The only way possible to see if the touch pads are working is to test the voltage of the control pads when it contacts. The input of the Microprocessor should be checked for the pad control inpulse to come in. If there is no trigger voltage to the mP this can be the control pad problem.
The mP must be checked for the working voltage and also the frequency oscillation at the crystal leads. If so the mP is working with a suspected control pads which is not able to set the program or timing.
There is no way but to remove the sticker pad and replace, One difficult way to have a chance is to remove the carbon sticker pads and check continuity , You can use a carbon pen to line the tracks so that the multimeter reads. With this it is possible to have a temporary fix.

Latch on dishwasher was broken, we replaced it with new latch from Maytag store, after we assembled new latch the dishwasher would not work on start, all lights would work, only start button would not...


You'll need to check the ribbon cable between the keyboard and the circut board and any switches controled by the latch which is more likely the problem.Also look for a loose wire on or near these switches.
Good luck,

I have power at the connection underneath but nothing works on the control panel no lights no anything and it doesent run


Incoming power goes through the door switch first,then to the control panel.
Your door switch attached to the door latch may be defective.
If the door switch checks good on a meter then the control board is bad.

My Whirlpool GU2455 dishwasher door stopping latching all of a sudden. I press the Start button. It just blinks and nothing starts up. Seems like the door latch lost its grip and hangs loose when you touch...


the door latch actually has usually 2 microswitches on it that connect to the timing device ie: timer or control board:: if the door is not latching properly then it will not power the control board and the blinking light is a failt code telling you that... it sounds like the door latch is broke and needs replaced... i would order a new latch very easy to replace. you remove the inner door panel of the dishwasher and then will see the door latch mechanism made of plastic of course isint everything these days.... replace it and reconnect the wires ...obviously i would suggest turning your breaker off to dishwasher prior to operating on it....a few good reputable sites to order parts from

I push start and my dishwaher wont turn on. I have checked the other buttons and they work. I also turned off my breaker to see if that will help and it still doesn't turn on,


either:
  1. something blocks the door from latching or closing. Check, if anything is stuck behind a dishrack. try reversing lower rack. check if the door aligns properly and dishwasher is installed correctly
  2. latch switch failed/latch mechanism is broken. Disconnect dishwasher from power. Disassemble door, check latch, check latch switches for continuity
  3. touch panel or control board (less likely) is failing. replace if none of the above is working for you.
Good luck,
Vlad

I have a Maytag MDB 5600AWW dishwasher. There are


If there are no lights on the control panel then initially check if connections to the panel are fine.If they look fine then you definitely need a new control panel. No need for a new touch panel.Its always that the control panel goes faulty,not the touch panel.
you can also check for competitive rates from local dealers and few sites like--repairclinic.com and applianceparts.com
thanks.

Power not coming on


When a dishwasher appears to be dead, many times the door latch is to blame. On some models, that latch has a safety interlock switch directly controls the power, so that when the door is opened during a wash cycle, power is removed.

The problem is that the interlock switch can fail or get un-aligned, so the dishwasher does not get power.

Depending on your skill level, you can investigate the problem, using a phillips screw driver to open up the latch so you can see the interlock.
Good Luck!

Maytag dishwasher mdb7601 will not run-


if power to the dishwasher is OK, then the door latch may be the problem. You need to unplug the unit, remove the inside cover to the door and check the door latch switches (may be a pair) with an ohm meter for continuity. Each switch is a make/break connection. If that is OK, the problem could be a power connector to the control circuit board that could be loose.
