check your old board. id like to see the burned traces and resistors if possible. i have a chart that will determine why it failed based on resistor numbers. try to find the resistors on the board that burned up and right next to it on the board like R10

Notice the metal clips that he references and points to early on in the video. Sometimes this clip gets compressed and doesn't keep the wax motor pushed as far forward as it needs to be in order to actuate the two micro switches that you see over on the right-hand side. When that wax motor plunger extends it actuates both of those micro switches. Both of those switches have to be actuated in order for the washer to go into spin. You could even just watch the wax motor in action. Open the control panel so you can watch it work and put though washer into spin. Though plunger on the wax motor will slowly extend and if you watch closely you should see it actuate the little black button on each of those micro switches.

If you have burned the horizontal traces along the bottom of the board you either had a spill on the back (Obvious, look for the water marks on the metal back guard), something in your water valve circuit has shorted (Ohm the Coils AND the thermistor, either will fry those traces) or you just have a bad board (Happens). Inspect the harness on the right hand side where it goes down through the lid to the cabinet, that is a known pinch point.
if you can trace those traces back to a resistor i can compare it to my chart and give you some ideas. but "Trying to help" is right on...

The 3 traces that burned go to wires 7, 9, 15 Hot Water Valve, Cold Water Valve, Timer. As I said I don't know that I may have caused this as at one point I held down the start button and rotated the timer trying to get the washer to work (Doesn't sound like as much of a good idea now as it did then). But, ohm out the valves I I want to say they were 1020-1030 or so according to my fluke meter. I looked carefully at the wiring and connector for signs of damaged but don't see anything. I am a bit lost, I am about to pack the thing up and take it in but I hate being beaten by it. I can usually fix most things and it kills me not to be able to figure this out. Any help is very much appreciated.

Now how much $$ did you save by not buying from our parts partner? :beating:
