Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a MDB6759AWS3 that is one year and two months old. This morning I went to the control panel to press the buttons and some would light up and others would not. I disassembled the inner panel and looked at the "computer like" flat ribbon that connects the control panel to the main circuit board and noticed that some of the wires in the flat ribbon had deteriorated. I put it back together and pressed the buttons and they flash very dimly for a few seconds and got the dishwasher working bu


Answers :

You may want to check the warranty iif it is a maytag or whirlpool, some have a 5 year warranty on the control and board. If not you can go to www.searspartsdirect.com to look up the parts you may need to repair unit yourself. Get the part numbers and check if there is a local appliance part store, sears charges alot for frieght. You can also call the customer service number of the manufacter of your dishwaher and ask for a concession for parts and maybe labor for servicer to repair. Some manufacters are real good about helping their customers.

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

Maytag quiet series 200 model MD88750AWB Dishwasher doesn't work. Control panel only responds to the heavy wash button. When pressed it lights up along with three option lights. After about 10 seconds they go off. There is no mechanical response to the pushed button. There were no symptoms leading up to this problem. If you can give me a "head's up" about what to look for before I open up the control panel I would appreciate it. Thank You John

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?

The Start button does not light up, yet the left side did light up for wash cycles. I'm guessing the PC Control board has some issue with touch button panel, as a faint high pitched shrill can be heard from the board after I took the door off and put my ear to the board. Also, over time the left side of the panel stopped lighting up too, so I through the circuit breaker. Can you advise which component it is.

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button. Online & repair parts person suggested I replace the: - Tail Cable Ribbon; did not fix problem, then - - Electronic Control Board (interface) which also did not fix it. Should I replace the Electronic Control Board that is actually the part with the buttons

My Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher will not start. I have installed a replacement control board that worked for awhile. When it quit I put the old control board back and it worked for awhile with a portion of the lights on the control panel lighting up. After switching control boards back and forth, it will not work at all now. It will run through the diagnostic program (Normal, Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry) but after that the start button plus other buttons are not lit so it will

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?

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 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. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew

Frigidaire dishwasher Rylee, the circuit breaker is fine. There is no fuse on the dishwasher according to the owners manual, the parts manual and the wiring diagram. There is no timer selector switch on this model. While I changed the control circuit board, the only other thing I can think it would be is the control panel with the buttons on it.

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.

The start button on KitchenAid model #kudp01flbl6 will not engage, although all of the other lights in the control panel light when pressed.
