Having problems with your Maytag MDB5100A Dishwasher ?

The last time I ran my MDB5100AWB, Quiet Pack, Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher, I stopped it shortly after starting it then went to bed. It hasn't run since. Nothing happens when I press any of the buttons; no lights, no motor, no reaction whatsoever. Is there a reset button? Any other suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher KUDIO1iLBS2 and none of the lights come on and if I press any of the buttons nothing happens. The unit is getting power to it as I shocked myself. I did ordered and replaced the control board and still nothing is happening. Any suggestions or ideas? Is there a reset button or is there a possible fuse that is out that would make the lights not come on? Please help.

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. It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor

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
