It seems like most of the buttons on my Maytag dishwasher…

Customer Question
It seems like most...

It seems like most of the buttons on my Maytag dishwasher aren't working. It will only due a select few operations like Quick Rinse. It also turns on on its own sometimes

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2015 MDB7749SBM3

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yep

Unfortunately this issue is a very common one for this model. The problem is that steam was causing the touchpad to fail over time so Whirlpool re-designed the touchpad for Maytag since they own Maytag now. You'll need to replace the entire touch control panel to fix the issue and that is about $130, but it's fairly easy to replace and only takes about 30 minutes. They of course did not recall the dishwasher as I believe they probably should have for this issue. Below is a link to the touchpad you'd need to order for your model.
