4 years ago I had trouble with my dishwasher not starting and I called the Maytag company to troubleshoot the problem. After 4 years of replacing parts and generally not having a working dishwasher I finally fixed the problem. When the buttons do not respond it is definitely the control panel! Just turn off the breaker and unscrew all the screws on the inside of door. Unhook the two sets of wire harnesses. Unscrew the black cover for the control board. Remove the door latch. Unscrew the last 4 screws that hold on the control panel and remove. Then put the new one on and do all the steps to secure it in reverse order. My dishwasher started right away for the first time in 4 years.
