Question Maytag dishwasher MDB7609AWS2 won't start
Model Number: MDB7609AWS2   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dishwasher stopped working a few weeks after the 1-year warranty ended. The start and cancel buttons were unresponsive when pressed. Other buttons lit up. No lights were blinking. What I tried:

* turned off circuit, both quickly and for 10+ minutes to reset.
* ran diagnostic cycles (pressed heated dry -normal- heated dry and heated dry-sanitize-heated dry sequences to reset).... both lit up all lights, including Start and Cancel, but not WASH light....however, the tests did set off short cycles that included starting, washing and drying. Ruled out a power, latch, motor/drying issue.
* opened the control panel, re-seated all connections and found circuits all clean and no corrosion, no moisture
* tested circuit board by unplugging the control panel ribbon, flipping the circuit back on and closing the door - drain motor ran, showing that the circuit board is functional without the keypad

It appeared that everything was pointing to a malfunction with the control panel (part # AP4434653 / W10254846) rather than the circuit board or anything else. Does this sound like a typical control panel issue?

Thanks for your time.

Hi.

I'm intent to agree with your diagnostics.Most likely it's the control panel.
There is still a chance that it's the control board but you should start with the panel first.
The APP return policy allows you to return any unused parts even if they been installed.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for Maytag MDB7609AWS2 UNDERCOUNTER DISHWASHER | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you. Post the results.

Thumbs up It was the control panel

Thank you for your reassurance. I ordered the control panel, it shipped to me within a day and my dishes are being cleaned at this very moment.

Phew!
