Default MayTag Dishwasher Control Panel doesnt work

We use our dishwasher only about once every 2 weeks.
Yesterday, it refused to work.
The HEAVY CYCLE button would light, but not the NORMAL, LIGHT, or
RINSE buttons.

Pressing the START button and nothing happens.

On the right side the Lock and Dry buttons would light if the heavy
cycle button was lit.

I tried latching and relatching the door, but nothing happened.

any ideas?

I tried opening up the door to inspect the control panel, but after
removing the back panel, I don't know how to get to the control panel

THANKS

Find the breaker, turn it off for 30 seconds and back on; sounds like
your dw crashed.

He means the dw breaker in your house circuit breaker box. I doubt it will
help but you might try cutting the circuit for a few minutes and then seeing
if the dw fixes itself. I had a 3 level Maytag DW that did the same thing
after 2 other repairs. We threw it in the trash.
