Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

Nothing lights up on the electronic panel, will not turn on

Maytag repairman came out and replaced the electronic component board. (the lights on the old one had gone wacky; it was still under warranty) 3 days later my wife opens the door of the machine to retrieve an item (it was running) and when she shut the door back nothing worked. I called Maytag and the repairman came out and said there was no power coming to the appliance. He would not go any further until I made sure the breaker and wiring to the appliance was good. I changed the breaker which was not the problem. I check the power coming into the junction box at the dishwasher and power is there. I assume the repairman checked the door switch but since there was no power I don't know if he could tell if it was good or not. Any suggestions.

Sounds like you have a defective Maytag repairman.. all kidding aside.. If you checked the junction box underneath the dishwasher and the wires are all correctly bonded together and power is there.. then it seems as if the control board may have been jarred loose from a connector or your door interlock switch isn't made. Was the Maytag Repairman there after you checked the power feed? If so.. he should have checked everything else for you.. Call him back and complaign.. In fact.. call whoever your repair provider is and ask for a manager and explain what happened.. I know these guys are not supposed to do some things but you did not get properly serviced...
Hope this helps..

Most likely moisture has affected the switches in the panel or the controller is faulty.

Refer assembly shown in the link below. Open the panel and locate the ribbon cable. Carefully take it out and with a hair dryer lightly dry up the parts. Put everything back and turn power back on. If no difference still then you may have to replace the control board.

The dishwasher will not turn on


Congratulations - you found the fault !

The options you have are -
Buy areplacement board from a spares centre.
Buy a take- off board from a scrap one on Ebay.
Or - Learn about electronic repair - and identify the burnt component , buy the parts and replace it yourself.

You can take it to an electronic repair shop - if you can find one - or a electronic supply shop - and ask for a new one of "them".

If replacing a burnt component - often there is a cause other than just that component.
Experience tells you what else might be wrong to cause it.

Same problem. Dishwasher won't start and wash light blinks.


If the wash light is blinking, there's an internal component problem there. Mainly the fuse is blown if it's blinking. Try to unplug the power of the unit overnight to reset it. If the same problem occurs, better have it repaired. If you can manually check the back panel of your machine to see if there's an open or shorted wire there, resoldering them could possibly fix it. The last resort is to contact a repairman to replace the burned internal electronic component.

Dishwasher acts like it isn't getting power.


If you have power to the board and no power out to components then your board has failed. Will need to replace board. Part#154635501 and sugg retail is about$100.

I have had the board replaced 5 times and the entire dishwasher replaced once. It was necessary to go to the state attorney general to get Maytag to extend the warranty. Just called the service center for the sixth time, after this the warranty will be gone and will replace with something well built.

Control panel lights OK; Won't start into cycles


Hey, just had the same problem with my 9150. Moisture got into the electronic key pad. $300 to replace it. I was 5 months out of warranty.

I called 800-688-9900 and Maytag agreed to cover the part and we have to cover the labor. Not completely satisfied but a little bit helps.

"3 second" light flashing


Pard, does your serial number end with either WS or WU? If so, Maytag had a issue with the main board, triac shorting and possibley damaging the motor windings. If your serial numbers fall under this, you are probably covered under the service flash. Im not really sure what you mean by the 3 second button flashing. Check the numbers first and post back.
