I cannot get start touch pad to respond on Amana dishwasher

Customer Question

I cannot get the start touch pad to respond on an Amana dishwasher.
It is 5 years old. If I hit reset it locks up with all the lights on for approx. 15 minutes then all over again.
I do not want to spend a couple of hundred dollars on a new control panel for a 5 year old dishwasher.

Hello and thanks for using this service!
Unfortunately that is a common failure on those units. The touch pads are really made poor and fail for that all the time. There is no quick or cheap fix; you will have to get a new touch pad to fix it. I change them out all the time for that issue. You can try to shut the power off to the unit for a full minute and turn it back on to see if it changes anything, if not you will need that part to fix it. Sorry for the bad news.
If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
