Hello... removing the board of ur washing machine is going to be a little tedious.. but if ur used to such opening up circuits then fine... have a dry cloth in hand to clean water droplets and also wear a rubber slipper to prevent shock.. examine the board may be if u have a plug in sockets try to remove and reinsert them provided u clean the contacts too.. and try it ON again..
