Priscilla, thanks for the input. They are a pain in the arse. I did not actually think about an internal fuse. I've already replaced the board with the same response, however, did not see a fuse in the same area. I'm curious though, if there is a fuse and it was blown, would I still have power on the "heated dry"/ panel lockout???

While replacing the control board again this morning, I still didn't get any change. I then was double checking all the connections, anything that was missed, and I the notice the handle / lock has a minor crack on one side, causing the pin to flex and I assume not making full contact with the 'closed' switch. This would prevent the dishwasher from functioning so I've ordered another handle-lock assembly. This is the second time I've had to replace the lock assembly - poor manufacture or design!

Hi Michael,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The link that Priscilla gave you above is to a totally different type of dishwasher. Your dishwasher does not have an inline fuse between the control and the power source. If you replaced the control board and the dishwasher will not light up you either have a faulty door switch (part number 99002751), wiring issue, or no power from the supply.

Now you mentioned a damaged door latch (part number 99003347). You are correct, this can very well be the issue. If the L1 side door switch is not made, the control does not get energized (see diagram below). If the neutral side door switch is not made the board will light up if the L1 side is good, but will not run. I have not heard of any known problems with these door latches.

I would recommend replacing both door switches with the latch.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your Maytag model number MDBH955AWQ dishwasher .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.

Celene provided a link for a previous answer in the first response provided above. This may have already helped you access the filter. If not, I provided the basic procedure for accessing the filter in the image below. This is similar to the one provided in the above link. Shut off the breaker for the dishwasher before beginning this process. You can remove the bottom dishwasher rack and the lower spray arm as shown in the image. This may give you the access that you need to clean the filter. If you need to get further down in the sump, you can use the procedure shown below.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Replacing the electronic control board in this dishwasher is not a complicated repair. Shut off the breaker for the dishwasher to completely disconnect electrical power. Follow the steps in the image below to access and replace the control board. I also provided the procedure for replacing the door spring and cable assembly. This information should help you make this repair yourself.

Had sent you a message a few days ago with no reply. Our Maytag dishwasher mdbs561aww will not start, the lights on the panel light up for all the other options but will not start, I figure it is the control pad, but I do not know how to test if it is this or something else.
