My maytag dishwasher model 665.15974992 lck on light is blinking. When I pulled the kick panel off and foung the repair guide it says it is doing this because one ore more buttons is stuck, but doesn't say how to unstuck them. I have tried pushing all the buttons and even slamming the door whith no avail. im am the daughter of a maytag repairman and determined to fix tis. Any suggestions? Thanks! Judy

    I have tried and it doen't work, either solution. I also goofed, it is a Kenmore not a maytag.

  • maytagdght Jan 11, 2008

    I have tried tis also but it just keeps flashing. Do you think removing the touch panel would maybe unstick whatever is stuck? Thanks for the suggestions.

    Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After taking off the panel (a bit of a pain, but doable) I unplugged the ribbon and cleaned it. I am running a load of dishes now and very happy! Thank you all for your help!!!

    I can press the load setting buttons on top of the door, but neither the delay or the start buttons will work... it just keeps flashing numbers. With two kids I REALLY need to run this dishwasher each night!

  • robert samples Jan 11, 2008

    well if all that fails to resolve the promblem your supposed to change the contol. but you could try removing the membrane ribbon and clean it with a clean pencil eraser before replacing some times poor contact there can cause it

Well my dishwasher won't turn on and it keeps blinking clean and I cleaned it and it won't work

1st unplug or dispower appliance for 2 min. Then, be sure door is cloesd, press heated dry key and Hitemp repeatedly until all lights on panel light up; if no....
The clean led blinks 7 times which indicates a heat circuit error.
Pull the kick plate off and behind should be a tech sheet..Look for heat cicuit... Check the heater for continuity..Some models come with kits main erc w heater....If heater test good then replace main erc and neutral line door switch located inside panel w main erc... Estimate for tech to repair $249-$329.... If you follow my directions you may soon one day become a tech..... A good tech would make $100-$150 on this job profit

Maytag dishwasher mdb7100aws is flashing clean-lightwash-heated dry

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWS which suddenly started blinking the following LEDs: Clean, Rinse Only, Regular Wash, Tough Scrub and Heated dry. Tried cycling the breaker, no help. Tried the key sequences in the troubleshooting sheet behind the kick panel, no help. Then happened to press the Drain/Off button twice. All LEDs went out and am now on my second successful load, fingers crossed. Suspect the control board got latched up somehow.

Don't seem to have any power,cycle and option panel won't light up.

Check your outlet, cord connections and cord first. If they are all good, you most likely have a bad board. But that is pretty unusual for this model Maytag. My money is on the cord connections to the dishwasher (behind kick panel bottom left).

Blinking lights, unresponsive

I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.

Blinking Clean and Rinse lights on Maytag PD8460AWN

My Maytag PDB4600AWN quit working with a flashing CLEAN light and RINSE only button. I took off the bottom panel and took out the electrical diagram.

I ran the diag test, tried pulling power, and a series of other ideas just to see if the error always pointed to the same thing and it did. It's the motor pump. My Maytag is 10 years old. Not sure what yhe life span of such things are. My Mom had a Kenore dishwasher that ran 17 years. Don't think that happens anymore. I bought my Maytag laundry washer and dryer at the same time as my dishwasher and they have trouble now also. Guess those TV commercials were a little on the iffy side of truth. Hee heeeeeeeeeeeee. :)

I think I'll just buy a new dishwasher. The repair guys bill will be high enough that I may as well
buy a new dishwasher.
