Maytag dishwasher has 5 cycles and three options. only one cycle works and no options

i think our dishwashers control board is messed up. i think i heard i can test whether it is working with a multimeter or not. if so how can i? the cycles options are: pots/pans, normal wash, water miser, china gentle, and quick rinse. only the china gentle option works. the three other separate options are: high temp scrub, santi-rinse, and air dry. none of these work... also the delay hours options do not work either. and when i try to cancel or drain it, it will not stop unless u open it (but when u shut it, it starts until it finishes.) can all of this be fixed if i replace the control board? or do u think it will fix it if i change the fuses? or both? if not, what other problems could be causing this?

Do a google search for your particular make and model. Most likely someone else has had the same problem. Most likely it is a bad board. The heat and moisture don't do well with the electronics in the door. Before you run out and buy one to replace it do some price shopping for new dishwashers. Most boards cost about half the cost of a new washer
