Have the same problem as other with the maytag quiet series 300 model MDBS561AWB dishwasher. Two of the buttons on the front light up, but dishwasher will not start. Don't know if CBoard or the buttons or the ribbon cable is the problem. Took the door apart and couldn't find any condensation....Looks like maytag has done it again......could use some help with the cost of replacing all those parts. Will help me decide if better to buy new dishwasher.....preferrably not a maytag or whirlpool, or a

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB600AWB, serial 18721619CN Quiet Series 300 will light up on the panel except for NORMAL WASH and START. It will not run. All other buttons work. It displayed the number 9 and the RINSE ONLY light came on after we got off the phone with Maytag. Initially nothing would light at all. We changed the fuse (it is NOT on a breaker) and it again didn't light. A few minutes later it did light the above mentioned buttons.

We have a Maytag MDBH950AWS Dishwasher that won't start. When you press the start button the cycle light, washing light , heated dry, sanitize and extra rinse lights all come on the dishwasher fills with water and after a couple of minutes it shuts off. Any ideas what is wrong? Thanks

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

Maytag MDBtt60awb will not start. Power definitely at dishwasher as panel lights are on, however "start" button does nothing. Dishwasher is less than 2 years old. The panel buttons eventually turn off. I've cycled the power to the unit with no response. The door is definitely latched. Unit ran fine a few days ago.

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 100 dishwasher. There is an icon with a "3" in it just to the left of "heat dry." I just noticed this "3" light is on and the dishwasher won't start when I push the "start/cancel" button. All that happens is the "3" light flashes when you push any of the other buttons, but it won't do anything else. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


The "3" means hold for 3 seconds to child proof it. When it's on, none of the functions work. When you hold it again for 3 seconds, it turns off and your buttons will work again.\015\012Good luck! ... 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!

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 ...

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

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

I have a Maytag QuietSeries 300 dishwasher. My original problem was with the control panel lights not coming on. Another repair website recommended replacing the circuit board. We replaced the board, but it did not solve the problem & the dishwasher would not work. Replaced the control panel. Lights come on, but when the start button is pushed "21" flashes on the time display. What do I do?

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.

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.
