Besides the circuit board I had to replace the keypad membrane but that meant getting the hole plastic cover.
Turned off the power to the Dishwasher first then I removed the front door using the Torque Allen Wrench. From here it was simple enough to disconnect the electrical connections to the switch panel the control board and the door interlock switch.
I used a small flat screwdriver to release the tabs holding the switch panel and control circuit board from the plastic cover. Put the switch panel into the new cover along with the control board and the interlock switch. Then reconnected the electrical connections and put everything back together. Put the door back onto the front of the unit and screwed it all together.
Turned the power back on the started the dishwasher. Ran fine for the first load and stopped at the end. But the CLEAN light on the switch panel was blinking on and off and I could not get it to turn off and that was preventing me from restarting the dishwasher for another load. I called the help desk and looked on line for a possible cause. Finally someone told me to check the heater cause the CLEAN light flashing was an indication that there was a fault during the cycle and it holds the system in a lock out mode. Haven’t had time to look into it any further so that’s on my to do list. I reinstalled the original control board and just watch the timer and after an hour I turn it off.
