    Default Maytag Quiet Series 100 Touch Panel Ribbon Cable Failure

    Maytag Dishwasher Mod # MDB5600AWQ Ser # 23621816EJ

    I have 3 Questions on this Dishwasher.
    1. Sometimes the Machine comes on by itself and runs through an entire wash cycle. Is there a trick to resetting the touch-panel (other than shutting off (for a minute or two), the circuit breaker for the Machine)?
    2. Should the Dishwasher have it's own dedicated 20amp circuit with no other loads on that circuit?
    3. Are the two wire harnesses on the inside of the door "polarity conscious"? These can be disconnected in order to remove the inside liner from the door . It seems like the 2-pronged connectors can be plugged in either way. Is there a schematic for this? The first time we had problems (noted below), a local repair guy put in a new touch pad and I am wondering if he put it back together correctly. If wired incorectly would this cause the problem of a burned out ribbon cable?

    Here is the on-going prob w this machine:

    Ribbon Cable for the Touch Pad Control Panel Keeps Frying.
    Just Ordered 4th Panel from RepairClinic.com
    These guy's, btw, have been fantacstic.

    After multiple burnouts with the ribbon cable Repair Clinic is sending a new Touch Pad Panel (for free) along with a new Electronic Control Board as they think this might be the cause of the fried ribbon cable.

    The burnout is where the ribbon exits the back of the Touch Pad Control Panel. Some of the copper leads are black, indicating an electrical short.
    Links to the Parts are:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not that I'm aware of.

    2. Should the Dishwasher have it's own dedicated 20amp circuit with no other loads on that circuit?
    Yes, definitely.

    3. Are the two wire harnesses on the inside of the door "polarity conscious"?
    Thats a good question, but I don't know.

    Here's the tech. data sheet/wiring diagram for your model:

    Yes, it seems odd yours keeps going out, don't know what to tell you on that.
