The Delay button on our Maytag MDB7601 dishwasher just keeps

Resolved Question:

The Delay button on our Maytag MDB7601 dishwasher just keeps on cycling after the Start button is pressed, so the dishwasher doesn't start. The cycle option buttons all seem to be working except for Auto Clean - it will not light up - it's our preferred cycle. Does this mean the control panel or circuit board needs to be replaced? Also, is there a program reset procedure for the control panel or circuit board?

Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. There is no way to reset the control panel. You have to replace the control panel. The control panel is the touch pad.

Does replacing the touch pad require special tools and skills? What tools? I'm a retired engineer and have done some household electrical and mechanical repairs, and may want to do the touch pad replacement if it is relatively simple. Thanks.
