I am using the Maytag troubleshooting guide sheet that was taped inside the console rear cover plate of the dryer. The Pin numbers for some of the switches don't match the actual wiring. The same is true when I look in the Maytage service manual.  For instance, the guide sheet and manual show the "Wrinkle Prevent" switch on pins J7(9) and J7(15) but it is actually on J7(11) and J7(15),  I found a total of five switches that the actual pin locations don't match the guide sheet and manual.  All my switches test OK once I locate the correct pins but now I wonder if there is still something wrong with the touch pad or if the manual is just wrong.  Has anyone else run into this?

That is what the manual says but mine are reversed.  Mine are wired this way:

   Wrinkle Prevent on J7(11) and J7(15)
   Wrinkle Release
on J7(9) and J7(15) 

I also have a reversal iwth the Time (+) and Time (-) switches.   The manual says
    Time (+) on J7(10) and J7(13) 
    Time (-) on J7(9) and J7(13)

But mine are wired the opposite:

    Time (+) on J7(9) and J7(13) 

    Time (-) on J7(10) and J7(13)

And then the manual also shos Damp Dry on J7(19) and J7(14)  but there is no J7(19)!  It is actuall wired on J7(9).  This is an obvious error in the manual.  I am hoping the others are also errors.

The dryer worked up to yesterday although it always had some problem with the LEDs being so dim they were barely visible.  Yesterday, it would not turn on at all and all the LEDs were bright like they are supposed to be.  I was able to get it into advertising mode and service mode but could not get access to the fault codes or do a membrane pad check. All the pad switches seemed to function except the start/pause and the signal + & -.  So, not being able to determine if the problem was the membrane pad or the control board, that is why I was manually checking each of the membrane pad switches using the J7 ribbon connector pins.  I'm 98% certain the controller board is the culprit but finding the switches on the wrong pins (according to the manual) leave a little uncertainty about the pad, as well.

Are you comparing the wiring against the schematic shown in the *manual* or the *tech sheet supplied with the dryer*. Tech sheet trumps.

Does sound like a bad control board.

I am comparing the actual wiring to the tech sheet that was taped inside the console rear cover plate of the dryer.  The Maytag service manual also shows the pin numbers identical to the tech sheet.  I have ordered the controller and when it arrives, if my touch pad works fine with it, I'll be certain the tech data sheet and service manual have errors in the pin numbers.  If so, it sure must be lonely being a Maytag repair man!
