Maytag Dishwasher MDB6100AWW - control panel short??

\015 Maytag Dishwasher MDB6100AWW - Recently I cleaned all around the inside door frame. It need cleaning for general reasons. Not realizing right away that I must have gotten water inside the door panel, specifically inside where the control panel is located. When trying to run I could hear a faint sizzling sound. After hearing this sound I realized that I must have gotten moisture where I shouldn't have. I let the dishwasher sit for a week. Hoping it would dry out and resume normal operations. Not so. After a week, the control panel now shows 5 lights illuminated, for no reason. The lights that are on include: 6Hr, 4Hr, Light Wash, Heavy Wash and the 3 Sec lights. Pushing any of the buttons, does nothing. No wash cycle of any kind will begin. Pressing the Drain/Off pad does not clear any of the lights illuminated either. I realize when I was cleaning with an old toothbrush around the inside door frame, I must have gotten water inside the square hole where the door latches closed. Have I fried/shorted out the control panel circuits? Can/should I replace the control panel circuit board or get a new dishwasher all together. Help! What can I do? Thanks in advance for assistance.\015

Answers :

If you can take the panel out dry it with a blower.You can use the hair dryer to remove the moisture. Do not point the hot air on the components for more than 20 seconds. Repeat it. If you notice any white/green fungus remove it. Check the connectors also.

MDB6709AWW1 Poor Quality Control Panel Our dish washer is 2 years old this month and the control panel broke!!! My service technician told me that he has seen DOZENS of new Maytag dishwasher control service panels break and is convinced it is a design flaw. When I called Maytag the customer service rep had the NERVE to tell me "that because the house is near the beach, I must get a lot of power outages and power surges, that is why the control panel broke." I told her I wasn't born yesterday

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

I have a Maytag QuietSeries 300 dishwasher. My original problem was with the control panel lights not coming on. Another repair website recommended replacing the circuit board. We replaced the board, but it did not solve the problem & the dishwasher would not work. Replaced the control panel. Lights come on, but when the start button is pushed "21" flashes on the time display. What do I do?

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

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. Question: 1) If I purchase a new Control Panel exterior white key pad, which is linked to the interior Control Board, should that solve the problem? 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 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

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.

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

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

My dishwasher (Maytag MDBH965AWQ quiet series 300 was purchased in May 2006 (making it just a little over 4 years old). The handle broke on it initially and now the control panel has gone out including the start button. The cost of the replacement parts is right around $200, so I don't think it is worth investing that kind of money into it since it seems to be a lemon anyway. I have always been faithful to Maytag. At the time of our kitchen remodel in 2006, we chose all Maytag appliances. I

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?
