It appears that the control panel needs replacing. Maytag's appliance service wants $129 just to show up. Then the part looks to cost nearly $150. That's getting close to the price of a new dishwasher. Can I replace the part myself? Is it just plug-and-play type?
Answer Ron, Yes, It's a project you can do yourself. Remove power to the dishwasher, open the door, remove the screws that attach the inner door panel to the door frame. Slowly separate the panels, label and disconnect the wires as needed. Unclip the control cover panel, then carefully unclip the control board from the control panel(a flat blade screwdriver works good tool the release the tabs). Reverse the procedure and test the dishwasher operation.
Hello, I turn on dishwasher at normal mode and dishwasher fill water perfect. The pump will start and after about 2minutes wash turn on drain pump and no water in dishwasher and run empty. I run a diagnostic mode same problem.heated dry,normal ect same problem. I think a mainboard failure.
If the unit has water in it when it is washing but looses all the water between the wash and the drain cycle then you will want to make sure that the unit is not siphoning the water out when washing. Make sure that the drain line is raised to the bottom of the countertop to create an airgap or make sure that if the unit is hooked up to an air gap that the airgap is not clogged. If this checks ok then the control board would be the issue.
Unit stopped working and still had water in bottom. No led lights working, tested power to unit tested power to door switch. Looks looks like there is no power to the door switch. What is wrong?
The first thing that you will want to check is the thermal fuse to make sure that it is not blown. If the thermal fuse is blown then you will need to replace the fuse. Also check to make sure that the heater terminals look good.
The start button does nothing. All others light. I've checked the thermal fuse and the door switch and they seem ok. Is the board bad?
Answer Hello Chris,
The first thing you should do is open the door liner to access the control, unplug the ribbon cable, and rub the end of the cable with a pencil eraser only toward the end of the cable to prevent damage to it. This is the best way to clean it. Reinsert it and re-try the unit. If the same issue exists, replace the control board (AP4588346).
When I reset control board (W10285180) all lights com on but the WASH light. With machine set at normal wash/heated dry,I get a normal fill cycle . Then starts washing, but the washing light does not come on. It seems to wash forever. The soap dispenser does open, but does not go into heated dry cycle. I think it just fills, wash, drain, fill, wash, drain. It will run like that for an hour and a half or so until I press the cancel /drain button, then it stops ,drains and turns off. Thanks for the help.
The dishwasher will run anywhere from 99 minutes to 2 1/2 hours. There are factors that go into this like the water temperature in the unit and how long it takes to heat the water to 140 degrees. The unit should have 120 degree water in the tub after fill which will reduce the time that the unit takes to heat the water to proper temp. The unit will time out of the heating process in approximately 20 minutes if the temperature has not gotten to 140 degrees. For the issue of the wash light not coming on, you will want to check to make sure that the ribbon harness from the keypad is seated properly but you may need a new control panel.
Water will not enter the tub at all..I've replaced the water value and checked the float but the washer is still not working..Any idea of what part I should buy?
You will want to check the float switch to make sure that it is not stuck in the up position and make sure that it is good. If it is good then the issue would lie in the control board.
Hi. Thing ran fine Wednesday. Water temp was nice and hot and dishes were perfectly clean. Thursday, wouldn't start. 'Heavy', 'Normal', 'Light', 'HiTemp Wash', 'Heated Dry', 'Sanitize' and 'Lock' all lit up normally as they always have. 'Start', 'Cancel', 'Delay', 'Rinse', and 'Tough Scrub' would not function. Tried cutting power for w30 minutes, no improvement. Ran a diagnostic. All lights came on, and the thing ran thru an abbreviated cycle, bouncing back and forth from rinse to normal. When it stopped, there were no lights on at all. I opened the door, it was nice and hot, the detergent dispenser popped open as it should, and it drained completely. Any idea what is wrong with it? Thank you for your help.
Answer Rob, There are a couple of possibilities, moisture or condensation could have gotten up in the control panel area, causing the keypad ribbon connection to fail. You may want to remove power to the machine, remove the inner door liner and check for moisture, condensation or water marks inside the control area and door liner. Disconnect the touchpad ribbon from the control board and check for corrosion on the ribbon and pins of the connector, you can claen them up with rubbing alcohol or non-residue contact cleaner.
