Can you tell me the replace procedure for the control panel for my Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4630AWB1?
Answer Hello Kevin,
As with any appliance repair, before beginning turn off the power supply to the unit. Next, remove all of the screws down and across the inside of the door panel. Lift up the door liner and I usually use this inner door panel to hold the door open. You do not have to remove and wires to the dispenser for this step, just reposition it in its' place, with the bottom out towards you further to hold the door open for you. Remove the protective cover over the electronic control and remember to place it in a spot you will not forget to reinstall it as it keeps moisture off of the control. Moisture on the control will destroy it so please don't forget to reinstall it as reassembly commences. Remove the wires one at a time and as you remove them, install them onto the new control. If you do this one at a time, you will not have to worry about looking for the wiring diagram to rewire it. Once the new control is secured in place, reinstall the control boards' moisture cover. Reposition the door panel and reinstall the screws. Do not overtighten these screws. I have found that if the door is in the completely opened position, when you tighten the screws the door is flat and not held by screw tension in a warped configuration. This will prevent the door seal from leaking during operation.
