Here in order is what must take place before the water valve will come on.
But first shut power down at the breaker/fuse box for 5 minutes , then power back up. Try the other cycle buttons to see if you they will accept your commands. Do any other lights come on? If yes....will any other cycles work? Try them all please.

If the control panel will not accept any commands then the control is most probably fried.


1.) have power going to the control....that is confirmed.
2.) there are two door switches that must be made....one allows power to the control board....we know that the switch is made because we have power to the control.
3.) you will need to confirm power to the other switch just opposite of the l1 switch that supplies power to the control panel. Here is a link to your wiring schematic and parts drawings.Click on the link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-MDBH945AWS/3048/0130000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MDBH945AWS
4.)There is a float that is located in your tub.....ensure this float is not in the up position.....it is a safety for not allowing to much water into the tub....if it is in the up position the water valve will not come on. Move it up and down to ensure it moves freely. If it does just below the float under the tub is a float switch that will be needed checked.

If you would like instructions on how to use a volt meter and how to check the switches listed above please post.

I am trying to start a cyle and everytime i push the cycle button it does not light up and the quick rinse button comes on and flashes nothing works at all if i push heavy wash it comes on and nothing...


You haven't told me how many times the light flashes, but I will take a guess that this is an error code associated with the water entering the machine being too cool. I believe the machine expects the water to enter at 110 degrees F (43 Degrees C).

To clear the error, press "Heated Dry" then release, then press "Normal Wash" then release and repeat this sequence until all the lights on the machine go solid green. Once this happens, hit ""Cancel" and the machine will reset.

The fix for the root of the problem is to increase the temperature of the incoming water in future (Turn up your water heater temperature a little)

The machine (Automatic Breadmaker SD-255/SD-254) is plugged in and the display lights up but when I press the buttons but nothing happens - I cannot change the setting or start the machine.


Plug the unit in at the power outlet. If the display comes on, switch it off with the START/STOP button. After the display goes off, switch the unit on with the SELECT button. Remember that the START/STOP button is only used to start or stop a specific program.

Press and hold the control lock button down until the light goes off. This is a child proof feature that may have come on if you leaned against it to long. After lock light goes off you can use the machine.

LG front load washer spinsense buttom does not come on


I have the LG WM3988HWA, which is a washer and dryer in one. The way it works on ours is that you press and hold the Spinsense button for 3 seconds before you start a wash, or while a wash is paused. When Spinsense is on, the LCD will say "Spinsense" on the right-hand side when the machine is running. Nothing happens with the light on the Spinsense button.

Spinsense makes a huge difference as the machine is on the second floor of our old wooden house. I don't even notice the spin cycle with Spinsense on.

Problems:
1. We need to turn it on for every load. This is just annoying.
2. Spinsense will not turn on when you've the Dryer option activated. This means we have to do two trips to the machine for each load, or have our house feel like it's shaking to pieces. There's no good reason that the Spinsense/Dryer shouldn't work.

Camera won't switch on


I thought the batteries had worn out because when I press the 'on' button the 'busy' light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out and nothing happens. Have changed batteries and checked installed correctly.
Any ideas please?
