Question about Maytag MDBH975AWS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Maytag dishwasher model# mdbh985aws that is not responding. The touch panel will only let you access the delay wash button. It will light up the options for the delay and then you try to set it, it will not work. Can't get any of the the other buttons to work. Any help?

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: dishwasher will not do anything

Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: maytag dishwasher MDBH940AWW. ''Touch Panel'' is not working.

Hi There,
Try just replacing the Keypad. It is cheap and is usually the cause. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

The auto wash/start/delay start touch controls will not respond...all other control panel area's are working, but I can not get it to start.


It is possible the button contact has moisture or some contaminent. Best to open the control panel and check under the button. Take photos as you go along to make sure it all fits together. You can check the part locations in this diagram.

Wont start..light wash lights up and delay wash lights up but start button wont work. replaced handle and it worked one time


There are two micro-switches just inside the handle mechanism that apply power when the door latches. You need to remove the interior panel to access. Hope this helps!

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Dishwasher not working (Model MDB5601A)


While I am not directly aware of the controls on the dishwasher I'd unplug it for a minute or two to see if the control reboots (for lack of a better term) I've seen many electroic devices that on occasion have this type of problem and simply taking the power from it may correct it.
I hope this helps,
Tom

Control buttons don't work, Help.


donnson, sounds more like the touch panel shorted or stuck keypads. You can remove the touch panel ribbon from the control board and try to clean it with an eraser. You will need to remove the torx screws and remove the inside panel. See if it comes back to life. Behind the toe-panel on the bottom, there should be a tech sheet showing how to check the key pad. The key pad and control board are warranteed for 5 years on this model, parts only. Catriver..post back.
