Unfortunately your control lock isn't engaged if the light wash indicator light still comes on and some options work sporadically. This is a just a common failure with Maytag dishwashers where the touch control panel itself has failed. This is not something you can just reset I'm sorry to say. The entire plastic touch control panel at the top of the door would need to be ordered and replaced and it usually costs about $130 or so for the part depending on the exact model number. The full model is located on a sticker around the front frame of the TUB and can be seen if you open the door.

You can order the part from Searspartsdirect.com but you'd need the full model number to look up the part number.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
