Have a 4 year old Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 74382. No problems at all until last week I went to start it and it would not turn on. Lights on the control panel were on with exception to the start light. I opened and shut the door to make sure it clicked and pressed the start button again and nothing. I tapped around the panel with the side of my fist and pressed it again and it began working. Well today different story I went to start it and it did the same thing. I tapped all over front of the

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher with electronic controls. When I set the controls press the start pad and close the door it will not start. The light on the start pad just continues to blink. This happened about six months ago and the Sears serviceman pressed two of the control pads simultaneously and this reset the controls. Everything worked after he did this. What are the two control pads that you press to reset the controls?

The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON. We've turned off the breaker to the dishwasher overnight, but when we turn the breaker back On, the contol lock LED comes on. We simply can't unlock the control panel. We can tell that all of the other buttons work just fine because pressing any of them causes the 3 Sec LED

Zanussi zdt6053 in built dishwasher not starting. When pressing the control panel on/off button the 65 deg normal wash light comes on. When pressing the program selection button nothing happens. When closing the door the machine does not start up. Is there a fault in the control panel circuit board? Would water pressure prevent the machine from operating?

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

My Maytag Dishwasher MDBH750AWW will not turn on. Pressing the key pad on the top front does not activate the controls. I traced the wiring and found it is active in the door latch assembly, which I recently replaced.

Or,2) if I purchase a new exterior Control Panel finger touch pad, and an interior Control Board, will that solve the proble

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid KUDI01TJWH0 dishwasher that failed. Any of the front control buttons like Heavy-Normal-RinseOnly or even the HiTemp-EnergySaver .... when you press any of these, the corresponding light for it will blink three times and go off. Normal operation that light for that button will come on and stay on. but none of the lights stay on. If you press start, the 'water heating' light will come on and you will hear the pump run for about 10-15 senconds, and then everything goes off
