Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

Resetting the board in dishwasher

\015 I have a problem with my dishwasher that the only thing that I think may help is to resetting the digital board\015

Answers :

If there is a procedure to reset your board it would be to remove power, then restore power to the dishwasher and press certain combination of buttons within certain number of seconds. As far as I remember that procedure was available and was described in tech documentation for Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid and Kenmore dishwashers. I don't recall such procedure for Maytags.
The tech documents are usually under the kick panel, which is under the dishwasher door.
The "hard" reset procedure for any control board would be the following sequence (standard electrical safety and common sense rules apply):
  • remove power (unplug, turn off circuit breaker, etc.)
  • access the control board; with Maytag dishwashers it would be inside the door
  • make a picture or descriptive list of all plugs and wires connected to the board so you could reconnect those later
  • make sure you don't have an electrical charge on yourself - touch the grounded part of the dishwasher, usually the frame
  • CAREFULLY (you can damage your board) disconnect all plugs and wires from the board
  • with a large flat blade screwdriver or any other metal tool insulated from your hand, briefly short the connectors on the board. If you can identify where the power wires connect to the board - short those between each other first.
  • put all plugs back using the picture or the description you've made before disconnecting; put the appliance back together. turn on the power.

Good luck,

I have an Asko 1585 dishwasher. It drops the inlet valve on step (step 12), and the recirculation pump (next step) tries to pump with no water. Later at about step 47, the inlet valve begins to work again and the dishwasher finishes the cycle without a problem. I have had the board checked, and all of the power supply and transfer circuits are good. That leaves the processor. Is there any combination of buttons to press which can completely reset the controller board?

Whirlpool dishwasher This dishwasher quit in the middle of a wash cycle,we had to empty it and wash by hand. I thought that maybe the breaker to the dishwasher popped but when checked it had not .I then noticed that there are no lights on the electronic key board .Even when not in use there should be one red LED that is lit. It almost seems as if there is no power to the dishwasher. Is there some type of backup safety switch or breaker on the dishwasher itself that I could reset?

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDC10IXWH1 that has no control power. I have already verified that there is 120V at the control board. The unit kept the lights on after the cleaning cycle was done and I couldn't shut them off. I reset the electrical breaker and now nothing works, but the board has power. Please give any advice you might have. I was thinking of replacing the board, but I'm not sure if it is the board or the front control panel. Any way to tell?

Bosch dishwasher Does not heat up in the washing cycle and does not drain down at the end of the cycle. End of cycle the display sticks at 1 and the drain pump operates until the machine is switched off or reset. Followed the suggestion in another thread to look for a burnt solder joint on the control board. Unfortunately my machine is a later model than the board shown and has no poor joints on the board. It would seem from previous answers that the problem is either the controller, the heating

Am15 dishwasher problem: The pad will only turn on and off. Can't get it to cycle. Was on cycle 4 needed cycle 1. Got it to cycle 1, but now on and cycle does not work and when I push the off button it reboots to on. I put new pad on thinking it was the pad but same problem. Question: Is there a way to reset the board? should I be looking some where else? I cut the power at the breaker box to see if that might reset with no luck.

I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out.
