I have found out why you say run away from this washer.
Too late for me.
I am committed to it.
Original problem,leaking water.
Replaced the filter housing due to broken inlet from the dispenser.
It will take on water and the drain pump does work.
Trying to test run the machine and the fuse on the motor control board blows.
Unplugged motor,replaced fuse turn the machine on,the fuse blows.
The board probably got wet when the housing inlet broke.
Removed the board and see no visible burned traces or components.
Service manual leaves a lot to be desired for my feeble abilities.
Anyone have any suggestions for finding the problem?
A new board is almost $800.00.
