Maytag dishwasher problems -- will not run ?
We have a Maytag Jetclean Plus Series MDB7749AWB (W10199645) that is just over one year old (yes of course, isn't it always RIGHT after the warranty has expired ?!?!?!)
The options buttons on the right side of the control panel will work, or at least they light up ... Steam clean, hi temp wash, heated dry, sanitize. The other buttons - delay hours, start, and cancel/drain on the right side do not work. On the left side, none of the buttons work ... Auto clean, heavy, normal, light, rinse only.
We have tried flipping the breaker in the main house electrical panel off, waited a few minutes, back on. We also tried some button combinations that we found online that were supposed to reset it like hi temp - heated dry - hi temp - heated dry.
When we try the button combinations, different lights will light up in a sequence over a couple of minutes. The DW will make a noise kinda like a grinding sound with the rinse only & dry cycle lights lit up, then noise, normal button light, rinse only & dry cycle, normal, rinse only, draining sound in sink, normal, rinse only & dry cycle. Then all lights on the control panel light up at once and stay on. They stay on for a pretty long while and finally they all go back out. I just tried it a few minutes ago so I could type this post. It has been 30 minutes and all the lights are still on. But they do eventually go back out, not sure exactly how long before they go back out.
Once the lights all go back out, it reverts back to only the options buttons on the right side working / lighting up when we press them.
Any ideas of things we could try to get this DW working ?
