Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

My maytag mdb 5100 dishwasher has blinking lights on front panel, and won't work or start a cycle. What can I do?

\015 Three lights are blinking on the front panel of the mdb5100/awb; they are the "rinse only" red light, the "6hr" red light and the "clean" light. I tried pressing the power off button and holding it, no response. I even shut off the power at the fusebox, but when the power turned back on, the lights started flashing again. Can this be easily fixed or is it time for a new dishwasher?\015

Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit the start butt

Hello Greg,\015\012\015\012Your diagnosis is pretty good, but the buzzing suggests it may be the capacitor for the pump motor that has failed rather than the pump motor itself.

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

My LG 24 in LDS 5811 ww quite working in the middle of a cycle. I have power to the machine, but no lights come on, nothing works. I turned off the power and removed the front pannel. The large brown wire and large orange wire that are plugged into the back of the control panel start to smoke. So does the large black wire and the large white wire. Any ideas, is this the heater or is the panel bad?

I have a Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KS474s for a year and it has always worked near perfectly. rn However, over the last couple of weeks the dishwasher has not been running the cycles properly (stopping half way through etc, starting the the delay timer half way through cycle), but it always sorted itself after being turned off and starting again. The trouble is now it has got worse.. when I turn it on the panel and lights on the front just flash, the delay sometimes scrolls through on it'

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.


You need to replace the circuit board inside the machine, technically it is possible for you to do it, how long have you had the machine, if it is under warranty you can have it serviced without any cost or less cost to you contact Whirlpool ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

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

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? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.)

Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.
