Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.


Answers :

The Control Touch Panels like to fail on may brands - especially Maytag. They are sensitive to humidity - and a lot have the vents out the front - right by the control panel.

Most control Panels run in the $175 to $250 range depending on age and functions.
Hello. I can help you isolate the problem. You have already taken the first steps, which is excellent. Here are all of the possible causes:
\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012
Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Power from the house\015\012\015\012Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Door switch\015\012\015\012The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Wiring\015\012\015\012Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer or selector switch\015\012\015\012Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

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

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned!

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!
