Matthew, in most cases when a circuit board repeats the same action over and over, there was a short and loss of communication with associated controllers. Obviously you have power to the control unit, so that means the instructions from the controller to the solenoids is lacking. You are correct in assuming the board needs replacement, however you must determine is the cost for replacement is worth the time and effort. An old machine means one repair after the other. If its relatively new; then it may be worth it.
Open the lower front panel and locate where the water inlet hose is connected. Shut the water off under the sink, disconnect the hose at the water inlet solenoid, then put the loose end into a bowl or pan and turn the under-sink valve on slowly. Do you get water flowing from the hose? If so, then check the solenoid water inlet valve for damage. If the coil is ok, the valve part may be stuck closed. It should make a firm 'click' when the timer is set to start the machine (leave the hose loose). If it doesn't click, the coil may be bad, the valve may be stuck, or the timer is not sending 115 volts to the solenoid. Try a new valve first. If still no click, you may need the professional service. Good luck!
im not sure about this if the upper arm is working ok,because the lower arm gets the pressure first then sends it to the upper arm,if the water pressure to the machine is ok then the lower arm is at fault take another look at the lower arm something is not right with the lower arm.adrian;;
Has the door got heavier recently?
Mine had a spring break which fell onto the electrics and shorted them. Unplug and empty it, then tip it up to see if you can see a loose spring. If it is then replace or re-fit the old spring, I have posted instructions and pictures here: http://www.howtofixanything.co.uk/howto-260.html
