Had to replace control board Part#:PS420961 on my Fridgidaire dishwasher. It shorted out and started to smoke. Thank god I was home. Had to turn power off at the breaker first thing. Removed the front control panel and cover. Unscrewed control board cover. Disconnected all terminal ends. (be careful here, the clips for the plugs snap easy and the one band wire just pulls up a little bit so you can remove it!) I took a picture with my phone for reference. Had to cut off two burned terminal ends, strip wires back, and crimp on new ones. I suggest using shrink wrap on them. I then pluged everything back in there spots and reassembled. I crossed my fingers and tuned breaker back on. Hit the start button and she fired right up! All good so far. Good luck!
