Try eSpares. Bosch parts are expensive but alternatives are usually available. They also have video tutorials for fixing common problems. Bosch website usualy has diagrams in the spares section. Are you 100% sure it is the control board? It could be something else causing the control board to freeze. For example I recently had to replace the drain pump on our machine.

My kenmore elite calypso will not do final spin.flashes LD. I replace the pump as was suggested,still did not fix froblem

Hello Alex;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

After review of your washer components, there is a strong possibility that you have a bad electronic control board. You have two control boards, one is for the motor and one for the other functions.


Washer electronic control board for Kenmore Elite Washer model #11021062001 Electronic control board 8571359 is the circuit board that manages the washer's functions, such as filling, washing, draining and spinning. It sends voltage to the drive motor and other electro-mechanical component.

Cost: $218.00

If you elect to replace the board make sure you ground yourself by rubbing your hands on something that is bare steel. Static electricity will knock a board out.

All appliances with electric control boards should have a surge protector. You can purchase a wall socket surge protector for $20-25.00. It is a good investment considering how expensive control boards are.

Rule of thumb; "If the unit is either 7 years old or the cost of repair is 1/3 or more of the original price, purchase a new unit.

Consider it purchasing a new unit, stripping your existing unit for parts to sell on e-bay. You will make a little money and save others expensive parts cost.

My motor on the right side is not working

should be simple enough, either the right motor has a problem (maybe worn out brushes) connector from motor to controller loose or apart, controller electronics for right motor on circuit board faulty, or power switching relays for motor have bad or worn contacts, or a fault from the control stick to the logic supply board.
best of luck.

Many of the (early) Maytag Neptune washers had more than their share of problems. So much so, a class action suit was brought against Maytag; and they paid for repairs, replaced washers or provided credits toward new washers. Many of the problems were tied to the control board and "wax motor" door latch mechanism. Maytag charged $300 - $400 and up to replace the entire control board - when the parts on the board can be easily replaced for several dollars.

Anyway, you didn't include the nature of the problem you're having, so it's hard to provide any direction. It is normal for the board to become darker near resistors - but not burnt. Most problems are burnt resistors, triac and transistors - and of course, in my case - the "wax motor" that was responsible for the whole problem in the first place. It reported that the door wasn't locked - so high speed spin never took place. Clothes were wet and took a long time to dry as a result.

Provide as much detail as you can for the best answers. What does it do? what doesn't it do? strange noises? Has it slowly been getting worse? Does it smell? Do you use regular or HD detergent? I know some questions sound crazy - but knowing the answers to them does help!

Multiple lights flashing on control panel

see this causes and fix it: God bless you
1) try to tight the wires connector well to the control board, clean it , but unppluged the power
2) dry solder, try to resolder+control board faulty
3 see the following steps:
Power Supply

The main power supply is the first thing to check. Also remove the toe kick and the cover on the power box and check the connections. Also check for 120 volt at the power box.

Hi - Limit Fuse

This will fail if your dishwasher overheats and occassionally with power surges. This is easy to check, inexpensive and a quick fix. Just check the terminals for continuity ( remember always remove one wire) if you have none replace the hi limit fuse.

Door Switch

This is the second place to look. Again an inexpensive easy fix. The following video will walk you thru checking the door switch. The power comes into the main power box and usually runs to the door switch next before entering the main control module.

Main Control Module / Timer

The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch. When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it does not respond at all you will need to replace the control module, this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.


The motor may have failed. If the control illuminates on electronic versions the problem may be the motor. To check the motor refer to the tech sheet located behind the console cover on most models, this will sometimes have the ohm reading of the motor. Also check each lead to the metal housing of the motor to check for shorts in the motor. If you do not have the ohm reading specicifications, check for continuity if none replace the motor. Make sure the motor is recieving power.

Float Switch

If the float switch has failed or is stuck the dishwasher control may not respond. The float switch is easy to check and replace. We have video and tutorials that cover several styles.

Maytag Neptune MLE2000AYW won't spin, motor wont ever move during motor control test in service document, I never get any output on the motor output leads to drive the motor. Switching power supply just...

Three places I check for appliance parts, besides the local appliance repair store, are:




It sounds like you have gone through the tests in the Service Book, and usually when the motor won't spin it is the control board, the motor, or the wiring harness. If you are getting no power from the leads on the control board to the motor, I would replace the control board. If you had or have any codes that come up on the machine, what are they? I have had to replace many motor control boards, and everytime it gets the machine going again. Only a few times did I actually have to replace the motor. It sounds like your motor is fine though. The most common cause of failure in these motor control boards is electrical surge. Many control boards now have built in surge protection to help prevent failures.

Fan will not turn on. heat coils heat up but blower will not spin. i installed a new blower motor and a new control board but still getting same results

When you changed the motor, did you change the capacitor? If the motor hums, but doesn't run, the capacitor may be the problem. Also, about a week or so ago, I changed a furnace blower and capacitor only to have it shut down again after 2 days. I talked with the vendor, and they told me that they had received a "bad batch of motors" and replaced the one that I had purchased.
If you didn't replace the capacitor, you should, then I would suspect the motor.

Best regards, and I hope this helps. --W/D--

We had the no-spin problem. Bought a new control panel as suggested. After resetting the error codes we get the E6E error.

Hello, After checking your last post the problem here is you were advised to buy the wrong board. The problem you have is with the spin control board or motor control board. this is normally located at the floor of the machine to the rear right side if you are looking from the front. It sometimes can be located at the front left also. It's always best to check out the experts background before excepting his advice by clicking on his profile. I would return the control console and purchase the motor control. Hope this helps. Mike

Motor control board needs replacing

You need to get the model number off the door jam or from the back control panel to order the correct board.
Looks like the right one to me you have listed already , once you get the part number for the actual motor board then you can search on line for the best price on one.

Replaced Motor Control, motor and Main Control board, but still won't work

The only other thing that could cause the ON light to turn off as soon as the motor is about to start would be a bad or loose connection that causes a break in the circuit. Even if the components are O.K. the connection could still be causing the problem.
