Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Push the buttons but doesn't respond

\015 In the middle of a cycle the kenmore Elite Ultra Wash stopped working. Tried to turn it back on but it doesn't respond to pushing any buttons. Thought it might have come unplugged but it is hard wired and none of the basement fuses are tripped. Any idea what I might try to see if it is an easy solution or if we need to buy a new dishwasher?\015

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

I have an older GE dishwasher, model GSD1200T02. I recently put in the wrong soap, so I had to press the clear/reset button. When I did this, the dishwasher ignored me and seemed to continue through the cycles anyway. When it got half way between "drying" and "off", it stopped, and has been that way for several days now. It will not respond to any button pushes at all now. I cannot even reset it because it does not respond at all when I press the clear/reset button. I have had a load of di

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.

My name is John, I have a Fisher&Paykel DD603 bought in Jan 08 and have a problem with the program selector, which is stuck on 12 min and will not progress to anything else.

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

I have a maytag mdb6650 aww dishwasher. The dishwasher just stopped. The light on the control panel is on. If I push the buttons to try a different cycle, the light over light wash remains lit, so the buttons don't seem to respond. I was wondering if it is the control assembly, or if the door switch is not working. The handle cracked a while ago, but if the dishwasher still worked even though the handle had cracked in half.

Maytag quiet series 200 model MD88750AWB Dishwasher doesn't work. Control panel only responds to the heavy wash button. When pressed it lights up along with three option lights. After about 10 seconds they go off. There is no mechanical response to the pushed button. There were no symptoms leading up to this problem. If you can give me a "head's up" about what to look for before I open up the control panel I would appreciate it. Thank You John
