I replaced the keypad very easily. I diagnosed the keypad because the "normal wash" button and "start button" were nonresponsive. These are the keys most often used, so I took the gamble that it was the keypad and not the control module. It was a good gamble. I removed the rear panel to get to the keypad and discovered that I had a problem with mice infiltrating my noise insulation, so I decided to replace that as well. The keypad was just a matter of unplugging the keypad from the control module and the digital display. I did end up using the old digital display because it had a similar plug configuration. I replaced the old contaminated insulation and replaced it with the new by simply pulling out the old insulation, scraping away most of the old adhesive and using a hot glue gun to glue the new insulation in place. When that was complete I made certain that the control panel was properly seated and I re-attached the rear panel.
