When I press the start button, the machine just blinks 2h for about 30 seconds then shuts off. Is it the control board or something else?
Answer Hello George. If you test the ribbon cable on the control panel, it should read around 10,000 ohms between pins 6 and 10, when the start button is pressed. Also you will need to test the latch assembly and see if it is good. Hope this helps.

Upon finnishing a washing cycle and drying cycle my maytag adds water. Instead of my tub being dry it puts water in. The pump is working. Thanks, John
Answer John, This is a normal operation, as long as the fill valve is activateed for a couple of seconds. The control will allow a few onces of water into the tub to keep the motor shaft seal wet and pliable. As long as the water level is at or below the screw heads for the outlet W10296525 in the center of the pump, all's OK.
The dishwasher control panel has stopped working. The lights do not light, and the dishwasher will turn on. Is this a control panel problem or something else? Are there any other control panels that work with the Maytag MDB5600AWW? In addition the door latch handle broke again and needs to be replaced.
Answer Frustrated, It's necessary to use the proper parts for the model number you have. You're most likely issue is the control panel key pad assembly 6-917709 and when you replace it, make sure there is no moisture inside the panel, you install the foam seal for the vent, and there are no twists,creases or wrinkles in the ribbon. This time around, you may want to try installing the complete latch assembly W10130694, it'll be easier on you, and theres a better chance of it operating properly, for a longer time period.
Sometimes at night some of the panel lights are dimly lit. It also has developed a number 4 or 9 on the panel and will not start unless you hold the wash button. This machine has also has a washing problem somtimes not getting the dbris off of the dishes. Could this be a control panel problem?
Answer Jerry, your display issue is most likely due to the key pads on the control panel 6-917716. It's collapsing or shorting out and choosing the rinse cycle, while it's running. That could be the washing issue, but, You should also check to make sure the dishwasher is filling properly, Thw water level in the bottom of the tub, after a start, fill and 3 to 5 minute wash, should cover the lower half of the heater element, or above, and needs to be 120 dgrs. F. for proper operation and chemical breakdown in the wash cycle. Good Luck anmd Thanks
Only cycles on the touchpad that light when touched are Heavy wash and Rinse. The washer wont start when I press the start/cancel button. I replaced the door latch assembly because of broken handle, still doing the same?
Answer Hi Demmy. Use the supplied service tech sheet to put the unit in a service diagnostic mode. It will be found under the toe kick panel or in the inner door panel . I believe that you may have a thermister failure but are not 100 % sure... It will explain step-by -step the procedure as it toggles the devices. It will flash a code that needs to be deciphered in the end. Thank You.
