Maytag QuietSeries 200 dishwasher dead

Have been having trouble with the handle sticking, but otherwise unit worked ok. Then it died, no response to any keypad buttons except for Cycle Select, which still does toggle the 4 cycle LEDs.

I took it apart and found the handle was broken. The micro switches seemed ok, at least until I destroyed one trying to unplug it from the harness.

Have installed a new latch assembly with new switches and see the same behavior as before. So much for the low hanging fruit. What's my next move?

Fortunately we're not hosting thanksgiving this year.

What type appliance are we talking about, Think it's a stove, Post type and model 3 so we can help. what handle is sticking? QuietSeries 200 does not tell anything just a brand name.

We still need the model number of your appliance.

I found the diagnostic sheet under the kick panel. None of the diagnostics activated so I decided that either the controller or the membrane were bad, and neither is cost effective to replace. So I bought a new dishwasher. I have a policy of buying only the cheapest appliances, so they are almost disposable.

In case this is useful to anyone else, I'll post the diagnostics sheet for this unit.Name:  image.jpg
