I purchased the dishwasher Model# MDBH970AWW used $45, told it run,just wanted to upgrade, got it hooked up it ran alright, but noticed the plastic on the touch panel was broken at the latch area, thought no big deal,took it off and sanded it , epoxy it and my only mistake is the flex cable came lose during repair,thought I'd just connect it back,well got it together now no lights or nothing, used my meter to check for voltage ,dishwasher is getting voltage, but still no lights. I looked everywhere on the unit but no service paper work. When i took it apart,I noticed the latch was broken,so I purchased a new latch with handle , can someone please provide the link to the service paper on this model for me? This dishwasher is for my step son, I just finished repairing my wife's Bosch dishwasher, it's only 4 yrs old warranty out just as it went out,replaced new control panel, replaced circulation heat pump had leak, water inlet valve, but it's running like new dishwasher again,wife's happy and didn't have to go out and spend another $1400. any way sorry to get off subject..
