Default Control board lights & START not working
Model Number: MDB9600AWS   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My start button stopped working and the lights on the front control panel where the time counts down is half on; meaning not all the lights are on. Do I need to replace the entire control board or replace the PCB board behind it? Thanks.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for MAYTAG MDB9600AWS Dishwasher - Undercounter | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the tech sheet
http://www.servicematters.com/maytag...s/16026390.pdf

And a manual
http://www.servicematters.com/maytag...s/16021814.pdf

Cannot tell which part is causing the problem for sure.
Does sound like a control board problem.
Check the keyboard/console with a meter (see the tech sheet) if it checks out OK then it is probably the control board that is the problem.
Still a bit of a crap shoot but your odds are a little better.

You could also try the following.
Connector Cleaning / Checking
Unplug the unit
Open it up
Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the control board.
Clean the edge connector.
If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink eraser as it is too abrasive.
Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying glass helps here.
Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
Reconnect everything and give it a try.

Thank you for the reply. Since the numbers on the display of the control panel don't seem to be fully on (can't read the entire #), will the cleaning help that or should I replace the panel? Thanks again

Cannot say but cleaning the connectors is worth a try.

Sounds like thsame problem I'm having. How'd u make out?? Did you replace the control board? Was it difficult and did you need any other parts or kits. Would appreciate any insight, thanks.

Didn't need a board at all. All I had to do was shut off the power to the stove from the breaker and turn it back on. The stove computer rebooted, reset and it solved the issue. Hope that helps.

Default Stove?

I thought you had a Maytag D/W PCB problem?? My control board is not fully fuctional, just doing Rinse and Quick Wash :20 min cycle. Did you replace your PCG?

I can't access the tech sheet without subscribing to the Maytag site. ($499.00)

I'm having a similar problem. My pad doesn't work at all and I can't turn on the dishwasher.

Any ideas? Or should I start a new thread?

Take a look at the parts link it includes a wiring diagram.

First check that the unit is getting 120 volts.
Check that the wire nut connections which usually connect the unit to power are OK.

Next check that both door/latch switches are OK
