Its possible that the carbon track path used to conduct the signal to start the machine on the switch membrane has worn off and can no longer conduct,you might try opening up the control board and if possible see if this is the issue,try using carefully an instrument to short between the connections on the printed circuit board and see if it starts,there is also a fuse to protect this board in this area,so also check this too

above the disposal and loops back down to where it connects into the garbage disposal. This will keep the water from back-flowing into your dishwasher. Hope that helps. gGood luck

All the lights are flashing on Maytag Quiet Series 300

Try pressing heated wash, heated dry, then heated wash, heated dry. It should reset it. Also try pressing and holding the cancel button for 5 seconds to see if that works if the other doesnt.
