Initially we called a Sears Repair man and he came out only to push a few buttons and miraculously getting it to work for him. My husband and I both pushed these buttons SEVERAL times for a week and nothing! He charged us $80 for the call and told us condensation causes the control board to stick sometimes. He could replace the control board but it would cost us $250 for the part and an additional $200 to do the work. Then he said there was really nothing wrong with it. A day later and one complete wash later, same issue. This time I googled my model of dishwasher and happened upon your site. I found the part and we decided to fix it ourselves. The part was $190.we unscrewed the top of the dishwasher, took out the old control panel, being sure to mark the connections with tape so we knew how to put it all back together. Got the part in two days, connected it and easy peezy lemon squeezy! It all works perfectly great! I will never call an appliance repair man again without checking out this site first.
