removed 8 torx screws and inner door panel. took off electronics cover, unplugged connectors & replaced circuit board. ran ok for two cycles, then failed to start again. Sears svc tech advised circuit board and the touch panel housing would have to be replaced as a unit. parts and labor $319. $65 svc fee paid, rcvd $65 coupon on new machine. Went in again and blew out ribbon socket connecting touch panel and circuit board. Now running OK. (??!) $100 for circuit board is good deal. Wasted $65 on svc call, to find out cost of authorized repair service was 50% of cost of new machine. We'll see how long it runs.
