Customer Question
We have a Maytag...

We have a Maytag dishwasher Model MDB7749SBB. We purchased the unit, for hoe use, in January, 2014. So it's out of warranty.

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

The dishwasher, in the last week or two, began turning itself on without us doing anything. I turned off the breaker that services the unit, left it off for several minutes and then turned it back on. It began doing the same thing once again. In order to stop this behavior we turn it off and leave the door slightly open.

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

Yes

If the dishwasher runs on it's own, it means that your control panel is shorting out and needs to be replaced. Now this part has been re-designed since it's has quite a few problems, but below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace for your model.
