Maytag MDB8851AWS Dishwasher Will Not Start
« on: February 21, 2013, 05:59:11 PM »

Hi, so I have a Maytag Dishwasher (Model #MDB8851AWS) that will not start. It started doing this about a month ago, but I got it to work by: (1) Putting about 3 large cupfuls of water in it. (2) Pressing the "Auto Clean" button (because none of the other buttons would light up or work). (3) Closing it then pressing start (which would light up while it was closed). It would usually run like this, but now, all of a sudden, it doesn't want to. The "Auto Clean" button still lights up; but when I close it, the start button doesn't light up after I press it, and it doesn't run. I have tried flipping the circuit breaker numerous times but no luck. Is there anything that I could do instead of getting someone to come out and have a look at it?
