Find your circuit breaker for your dishwasher and turn it off for 3-5 minutes. Turn it back on, then turn on your dishwasher. If this works, after the complete cycle of your dishwasher, you have to turn it off manually by pressing "on" botton then press it 1 more time to cancel; this will turn off. The defect is, probably the moisture built up in the control board causing it to ground some of the connections. Suggestion for the manufacturer, insulate the control board to prevent absorbing moisture.
A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them. If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged. Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.
If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.
Maytag Quiet Series 300. The lights flash in sequence starting from the outside traveling
inward. The timer counts backwards from 50 to 1. Then the sequence
starts over. and continues over and over. I'm able to clear it when the
time reaches 1 or 2. It stays off for a while (3-4 hours) then starts
over. I can not clear the countdown until it reaches 1 or 2. After I
clear it the dishwasher will work, but until then, no way. This happens
with the door open or closed.
Your problem is: You have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. You have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle.
It sounds like a bad control board. It's in the top of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory to find a repairman.
