Customer Question

I have a Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB7749SBB#. It was installed 26 months ago. Having problem with the control panel. Nothing happens when I select options and push start. Just replaced circuit breaker but still have problem. Any suggestions Dennis Hermann(###) ###-####
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Installed 5/28/2014. Model Number is *****
JA: What are all the symptoms of the problem (error codes, flashing lights, etc.)?
Customer: If I reset the circuit breaker the Control/Lock light will come on for a few minutes. That tells me I'm at least having electricity to the washer. But nothing happens (no lights come on) when I press for example, the Normal Cycle and then press start. A big zero.
JA: What happened just before this problem started? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Several times in the last 2 weeks I had to reset the circuit breaker in order for the washer to function. Other times it worked fine. Today it's on the blink.
JA: Anything else you want the appliance expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

From the description it sounds like the user control is getting stuck and will need to be replaced in order to fix this.
