Control Panel Problem on a Maytag DW MDBTT79AWW

\015 I have Maytag Dishwasher Model # MDBTT79AWW (Quietseries 300) and the buttons on the control panel have stopped working. Is this worth repairing or should I be thinking about a new dishwasher?\015

Answers :

I had this same problem, ordered the replacement control panel from whirlpool. The new panel worked for two weeks, then stopped working again. OUCH!
The replacement part costs $264.34 and has no warranty if you do it yourself.
I think I am now going shopping for something other than a Whirlpool or Maytag machine. They have terrible customer service.

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?

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 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

The control panel on my Maytag MDBH970AW is unresponsive, and the latch is stuck in the "open" position (the plastic piece stays pushed in to the handle and won't come down). I've checked that the unit is getting power from the house. Last time I had this exact problem (when it was under warranty), they had to replace the control panel, the latch, and it seemed like most of the door. What should I do?

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 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?

Pld2560lcc1 Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem.

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."

Control panel will not light up, the dishwasher was running and now it has stopped mid cycle and will not do anything. I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem. There is power to the outlet, no tripped breakers. But control panel will not light up.

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
