Regular cycle takes 4+ hours. Looks like from other posts it is thermostat, heater or controller?? Looking for the diagnostic sequence and codes for this particular model. Help!  (and thanks).

Service book was a great help - thanks!

So, I found the burnt solder on the board, just like the examples (obviously a latent defect). Question is now: do I re-solder or try to have it replaced under warranty.?Looks like the electronics are covered by 5 years (installed unit in 2006). Looks like an easy fix, but if it doesn't work, I don't want to void my warranty.

On the other side, if I have to pay a tech hundreds to come and verify what I already know, it really may not be worth it.

I am including a pic of the burned board. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

If you're comfortable soldering, you can try your hand at the repair, nothing to lose really. I've done this repair many times==> http://fixitnow.com/...mplete-a-cycle/

Some basic info on how to solder==> http://fixitnow.com/...pliance-repair/

OK, did the solder and have run 2 cycles through - so far everything appears to be good. Took less than 2 hours each time. No expensive service call, no more expensive controller board replacement.

Thanks again!
