Maytag MDB9601AWB-nothing happens when I press the start button

\015 Maytag MDB9601AWB (Quiet Series 400). Nothing happens when I press the start button; the display time blinks but turns off after a few minutes ; not sure if its the control board ($109) or the Panel ($197) that's the issue. Any way to tell the source of the problem? Appreciate any suggestions.\015

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 F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change. We have switched the power off at the powerpoint and on again a few times but this has not rectified the problem.

I wanted to heat up a cup of tea. As I've done many times before, I pressed Time, then 1:20 seconds, then I pressed Auto Start, but fear I may have touched the button below it, which says Start in small red print. The oven wouldn't switch on, and I noticed a small green u-shaped mark had appeared at the base of the 1: I pressed Clear, and repeated my movements, making sure this time that I pressed Auto Start. Again, nothing happened. I've cleared the touchpad several times, but the oven won't

Zanussi zdt6053 in built dishwasher not starting. When pressing the control panel on/off button the 65 deg normal wash light comes on. When pressing the program selection button nothing happens. When closing the door the machine does not start up. Is there a fault in the control panel circuit board? Would water pressure prevent the machine from operating?

Hi. I have a Danby DDW396W countertop dishwasher brand new yesterday. We unpacked it, installed it onto taps, loaded it with dishes, and turned it on. That's where everything went wrong. When you turn it on, the display shows P2 and when you press the program button to change it, nothing happens. When you push the start button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I know I'm missing something simple, but what? Please help. Katherine

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. 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.

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?

Sounds like you are in the testing/diagnostic mode. You can exit the program by holding the buttons, or simply unplug the unit for an hour, in meantime of being unplugged, press and hold the function or power button for 5 seconds, then wait 1/2 hour ... Ariston Technologies Dishwashers
