Never a Maytag again

I have a Maytag Dishwasher quiet series 300 and had to replace the touch panel control on this dishwasher twice. After about a year, the front panel displays a flashing "81" when trying to get a load of dishes started. Last time this happened , it turned out the front panel is defective. I had to remove the front panel display which is connected to a ribbon cable that is plugged into the control module unit just on the right inside of the door. For a dishwasher that is only 5-years old, this has been rediculous to pay for over a $100 front panel display part!
Has anyone else had the same problem I have had? Any ideas besides buying another dishwasher?
