Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher won't start and start button doesn't light, but other buttons respond

\015 Kenmore Elite with Ultra Wash #665-13792. I replaced the control panel, as the start and cancel buttons had worn through to the black buttons underneath, and eventually most of the buttons did not light, or they would flash intermittantly. Had tried some diagnostics, and got it to respond to that, but still wouldn't start. So I replaced the control panel. All buttons seem to respond, except for the start button, which doesn't light up or respond to touch. What is the next step please?\015

Answers :

I think you still have warranty, it sounds you have faulty control panel, even if it's new does not mean it is good.

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 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?
