Machine stopped several times, but restarted when load rebalanced. Now will not power up with front switch, 120VAC at outlet and Control Module input terminals.

Dead machine is 99.999% caused by a dead control board. The most common cause of a dead control board is a pump wet from leaking shorted-out the board. Doesn't have to be a large leak that puddles on the floor, just enough of a drip to get the pump wet. Look under the machine at the pump for evidence of leaking -- rusting, mineral deposits.

Pump does have rusting and mineral deposits.

Resistance is less than an ohm low of spec? Is pump necessarily shot? I am going to remove and inspect.

If board is damaged, anyone have any luck replacing board components? i.e. DigiKey

The pump is a goner. Don't try to save it.

There's a fuse hard-soldered on the board that a few have tried replacing ... but success on that endeavor depends on whether other board components are bad. F&P does not publish components specs so it all hinges on one's facility with electronics.

There apparently has been a large drop in pump quality in recent years. I have a 1999 GWL08 that had a pump replacement (its first repair) at 12 years, which I paid attention and caught the problem before board damage occurred. Also have a 2004 IWL12, also has had no repairs thus far.

All the gwl 11 and 15 units are now coming with a 2.5 amp loblo fuse in the drain pump circuit, which protects the board if the pump goes south. Not sure if the 37's are like that as well.
