I'm having problems with my Kenmore Elite top-load washer. I can't find the model number but it says Part number 8283430 on the back. I'd say it's around 10 years old.
The washer seemed to be "dead" - no display, none of the buttons worked. I reset the breaker and tried it again and got nothing but, for some reason, it worked the next day.
A few days later - same problem - only now resetting the breaker doesn't fix it. I've checked the outlet and it's fine. I've tried pulgging the washer into another outlet - no dice. Is the control board shot? Can I simply buy a new one and replace it myself?
