Narrowed it down to the valve or the analog control board. All comments seemed to favor the board, so I bit. Ordered it, got it in three days. To replace this board: Make sure power is unplugged to the washer. 1--Gain access to the rear or right side...this repair cannot be done from the front. 2--The control front has a removable back, held on by three (3) Phillips screws on the top and two (2) 1/4 inch nuts on the bottom. Remove all five and take off back of control panel. 3--This control board rests on four (4) plastic standoffs underneath the timer mechanism. Super easy to spot. Has a main wiring connector (multiple wires, I didn't count). Remove it. It has a safety bayonet latch, so work it off easily. Only goes in one way, so you cannot mess it up. 4--To remove the board, the standoffs are also bayonet-style. Press them together with pliers (I used my fingers) and they'll release the board. 5--Put new board on, in same orientation as old board (so that the wiring connector lines up correctly). 6--Plug in wiring connector. 7--Test before bolting everything back together. 8--Put back on. Honestly, an easy, easy repair. Mine worked like a charm. Didn't even know we had no cold water until our son came back from the Army and he was used to cold water; wife and I always used warm, but this fixed it PERFECTLY.
