Bad fuse or control board is shot ... Maytag Dishwashers

Maytag Quiet Series 800 dishwasher won't start. The only button that I can get to work is pressing and holding the locking feature--that light eventually comes on. A couple of times I came back in an hour or so or the next morning and hit the start button and it started right up. Now it won't start at all. VERY FRUSTRATING!

Lights work, dishwasher works but "start" button won't start it. I can get it to work sometimes by hitting a few of the buttons back and forth. Otherwise, I can't get it to start.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start. The 'start' button was acting up and would have to press a few times before light would flash and then the dishwasher would work. Now everything lights up but start button does not work. Opene

We have a 2003 KitchenAid KUDI01IL Dishwasher that will not start . We had problems with the top rack dishes getting clean and we replaced the chopper. The dishwasher worked fine for one cycle, but now will not start. The buttons have lights except for the high temp scrub light. The dishwasher will drain when cancel is hit but that is it.

Hi, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603 dishwasher. The bottom drawer works fine but the top drawer doesnt work at all. It appears normal until the start button is pushed and then I get 3 very quick beeps followed but a 4th slightly longer beep. Then nothing happens, any ideas or help would be much appreciated. Thanks Neville.

When I hit the start button on my dishwasher nothing happens. It still "finishes" the cycle but nothing ever cuts on. It doesnt fill with water and the sump pump never engages to drain the water that's not there. Any ideas? I know the inlet water pump works, I've detached it and connected it with a pigtail to an outlet.

So, it was working fine for 4 years. Then last week it started getting louder after the initial fill cycle. Now, all it does is fill the bottom with water, clicks (where the motor used to kick in), then just hums. Nothing happens, but when I hit the cancel button, it empties the water from the bottom. Any ideas?

I have a Whirlpool model DU1055KJVQ1, Type 575-0 under-counter dishwasher which is less than 2 years old. In the last couple of weeks, it wouldn't start intermittently, and I would need to hit cancel on the keypad, and then restart. Now that doesn't work. When I try and start the dishwasher, it doesn't work. I press Normal for the cycle, heated dry for the Option, and then hit Start. The buttons light up for 20 seconds or so, nothing happens and then they go out. Any ideas?

I have a KitchenAid KUD1021RWHO dishwasher that will not turn on when I hit the start button. The LED lights work when I press cycle selection ie. "normal" but when I press the start button nothing happens. I have waited for a couple of hours and then it will start. However during the last week it has happened more frequently and now it has not worked for the last (2) days. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Thank you for your help!!!


Hello,\015\012\015\012This is a very common issue on these units. The touch pad has failed. You can try to flip the breaker off for several minutes and see if that clears the code. More than likely the touch pad will need to be replaced.\015\01 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IR Built-in Dishwasher

I have a magtag quiet 100 series that has a broken handle but still shuts tight and seems to lock yet. Problem seems to be that the rinse only light will stay on for quite a long time and won't let me hit the wash button. When the rinse only light does go off, if I hit the wash button it starts but then switches to rinse only. Sometimes I can get lucky and get it to stay on wash after the rinse button is off for some time. Any suggestions?

Our Maytag MDBH985AWSO dishwasher is 2 years old, and the start button will not work. It just started up on its own and ran an empty cycle 48 hours after our last attempt to get it running. All other buttons appear to be working. Should we replace the control board its like 200$ for the part alone.

I have the Quiet Partner II, DU1100XTPB7, and have already replaced the electrical ciruit board but having the same problem. When I hit any wash cycle button, the soak/scour & heated dry buttons light up, but will not "start." The "rinse only" button does nothing, but if I hit the "delay" button, then the soak/scour, cancel, and also the status buttons, washing & drying, all night up at once. The only button that seems to be working is the "cancel/drain." Although there's no water in the mac

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button.

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

Our dishwasher (a Maytag - MDBH970AW) will not proceed past the intital intake of water. It has done this occasionally in the past, but with repeated attempts to start a wash cycle, it would eventually work and continue to work for some time afterward. However, in the past week, it will not go through a wash cycle. I have ran the water, prior to starting, to ensure that it is intaking very hot water. When it quits, I can push the start button again and it will go through the 2 minute drain c
