Discovered that thousands of others are having problems with the control panel on their dishwasher. Mine is Model # MDB7749SBM2. Looks as if I should just junk this horrible product and buy a new one (another brand, of course). My biggest concern is that I purchased other Maytag products along with this dishwasher, ie, a refrigerator-freezer, a built-in stove top/oven and a microwave. I have had a service call on the fridge (water line), the oven (gas) will indicate a set temperature (400 degrees for example) sometimes it will only be abt 200 degrees via a portable thermometer… Sometimes it doesn't ignite at all (have to reset it 3 or 4 times, the microwave has issues with the digital readouts, and on and on and on.

I have only had these appliances about two years (after warranty expired) when each unit started exhibiting problems. I paid $175 for the fridge repair and am now considering biting the bullet & replacing everything as MAYTAG/WHIRLPOOL apparently isn't going to take responsibility for any defect on ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS! I'm 75 years of age, retired and cannot afford the replacement route but it looks like I don't have a choice unless someone has a better suggestion. I don't have the skills or energy to attempt the repairs myself.
