Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Only one function works on my main panel

\015 On my main function panel only the normal function works, other the others don't work and nothing lights up either. Please let me know what the problem could be?\015

Answers :

If the problem is that only one button (normal cycle) works when you press it and none of the others do, then you have most likely a bad keypad, but possibly a bad circuit board. It's difficult to say without knowing which model of dishwasher you have.

The repair is not really that difficult, but you should probably order both from someplace with a good return policy, then change the keypad first and see if that works. If it works, return the circuit board. If it doesn't work, put the new circuit board in.

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working bu

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

My SB908WL Westinghouse dishwasher is tripping the switch when it goes to pump out the water. What are the likely problems and solutions please! If anyone has some expertise that would be great. (I have recently checked the soldering on the main panel and touched one point up, the rest are fine it seems). The element is working as there is hot water in the unit. We have small kids so maybe something is jammed in there? How do I get access to check. All input helpful. Thanks!

I have a Maytag quiet series 300, model # MDBTT60AWW. The front control panel have some green lights on but the start/cancel button won't work. The dishwasher will work for 5 days and quit for 2-3 days then work again. I tried to reset the main electrical panel hoping the dishwasher will reset too but it didn't work. I opened the panel on the front door to see if water is getting into the electronic panel but it is dry. I'm wondering if it is the front control panel itself is the problem. I want

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.

Our dishwasher was taking in water, circulating it but not heating it up or moving through the cycle. My husband took the control panel off and there were some scorch marks on it so we got a new one. He replaced the control panel and the dishwasher went fine for one night. It heated up and washed everything perfectly. The next day when we put it on it was back to square one plus the lights on the control panel are now not working. Just wondered if anyone has any idea what we could do or are

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.

We have an AM-14 dishwasher. It now will not work on auto. It would sometimes and then not and now only on manual. We have had a couple people in to look at it. One says the main board was bad, so it was replaced and the problem continues. The board that was removed was put into another washer and it worked ok. We were told then that that a wire from the motor was wrong and thats when we called in another person. That person said the board was bad and they couldn't work on it. We are in Lancaste

I own a whirlpool gold model #GU980SCGQ3 . After the rinse cycle the dishwasher stopped . The water has not drained out and nothing on the control panel works when you press the buttons. The breaker did not blow on our main fuse panel in the house. Something similar happened a year after we bought it and the electrical panel had to be replaced under warranty. Is this the same problem? or something different?

Can you help as I cannot really afford both!
