Customer Question
My Matag dishwasher is...

My Matag dishwasher is about 9 yrs old. When I press the start button nothing happens. The other buttons light up when I push them, but the dishwasher will not start.

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

Maytag quiet series 200. Legacy series. Model MDBH 945AWW. I don’t know how to run the diagnostic test cycle

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

No.

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

I don’t think so.

My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.
Please note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient.
Also the website will send you a phone call offer that is not from me!

If you can not start the unit you will not be able to run diagnostics .

And have you unplugged the unit for 5 minutes to try and REBOOT the electronic control board yet? if not lets do that at this time. please.
