Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

Maytag. MDB7749SBM1.dishwasher not that old.

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

Hopefully

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't know. The dismantling won't work. It started acting up a couple of weeks ago. We would push normal wash button and the auto clean light would come on. Now nothing works.

There are no fuses on this dishwasher so if the panel won't turn on, either the dishwasher is not getting power from your house, or the control panel has failed. Now my guess without testing anything would be that the panel has failed because it has been known to fail often and has been completely re-designed by Whirlpool (who own's Maytag) to help resist steam and moisture which is believe to cause the old touchpad to fail. Either way, if you have a multimeter, remove the kick panel below the door and test power at the junction box between the power and neutral wire. You should have 110 volts. If so then replace the control panel. Below is a link to the part.
