Having problems with your Maytag MDBH985AWW 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher ?

Our Maytag MDBH985AWSO dishwasher is 2 years old, and the start button will not work. It just started up on its own and ran an empty cycle 48 hours after our last attempt to get it running. All other buttons appear to be working. Should we replace the control board its like 200$ for the part alone.

I can push the cycle through each wash type but when it gets to normal the led does not light up. No matter what wash type the start/cancel button appears not to work. All other buttons appear to work. Thanks in advance.

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned! The dishwasher doesn't have many buttons on it (a power button, cycle selection button and 1/2 load

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.

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers
