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..

How do I fix problem with Vizio m550vse LED TV? Flashlight test reveals picture and no back lights are visible.

Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

MED9700SQ dryer sensor light comes on but will not run

I have the same problem with the same model Maytag dryer. I called a repairman and paid a hefty service charge and the repairman found that the electronic control board needed to be replaced. This particular part (Part #8558455) costs between $250 and $350. Evidently there are many people with the same problem.

My panasonic th-42pwd8uk tv wont power on. When I press power it clicks to turn on then clicks again and the screen never shows up. No red lights no blinking lights just a solid green light.

Check the capacitors and replace the power components. It is an easy fix if handy with soldering electronics. Tv Repairman may charge less than $100.00 bucks to fix it !
Good luck

Loss of power nothing working


if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.......

My system is on standby mode how i can fix this problem


Your unit being stuck in stand by mode is an indication that its having a power problem. Remove its plug from the wall and fix it back into the wall, then turn it on again. If its still stuck in standby mode, then the power supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.

The power supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not come on.

If you know about electronics repairers, I would suggest that you disassemble the unit and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it.

If you don't know about electronic repairs, take the unit to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.

I wish you good luck.

Control Button Issues

My two year old unit would not do anything, but lights on. Then they would go off, and nothing but opening the door would get them on again. Replaced electronic panel in Feb. 2008, under warranty, still cost $80. Worked until first of June, 2008. Ordered a new panel. Repairman suggested that the wall outlet may be defective, even though the lights were on. The Unit also would have the lights come on by themselves. Outlet replaced, dryer worked fine. We still replaced the panel board, as repairman was not sure exactly what was the problem. I was told that the panel costs about $300.
