Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher
My model MDB7100AWW had a door switch problem (palmetto bug got inside). I removed the bug and got it working for two weeks. It died again, so I figured the switch was misaligned fom my previous work. Got it to turn on, but now I'm getting two flashing lights: Heavy Wash, and Clean. Removed power for a few hours, but it didn't help.
I have the same problem with the lights flashing on the control panel. It pops up every 4 or 5 months. The only solution I have found is to press the delay/resume button one time then press the drain/off button twice. You may have to hold the keys down for a couple of seconds. This seems to reset something in the panel. Make sure you haven't pressed the 3 second lock button or it won't work.

Usually this is a problem with the door switches or a broken door switch mount.
Sometimes after a part replacement one will find a couple of wires have been reversed.
There should be a mini-manual with wiring diagram inside the oven behind the control panel.
If those are all correct, you may have a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
