I don't use this forum for deeper DIY support it's too difficult to find my older post for reference and no editing features.
Google this ""FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement"" I support a lot of owners like you and myself at that site. Fixya is OK if you can get help for this TL.

If so Google Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW
In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues that I have helped owners with. I'm an owner of a FAV6800A top load machine.
Google this FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement to see what is involved in doing an Outer Tub Rebuild.
Yes it could be, you could try to reseat the ribbon cable on the Control Board. I have three Control Boards two of which are mounted on Consoles and all work in my test FAV6800A. The machine is hobby and I help owners that wish to DIY the repair on the machine to save big $$$.
If you do decide to DIY this issue and do not have access to a loan'er Control Board I would look at a supplier that will offer a return policy if the Control Board is not the issue. You will pay top dollar for that service.
All my spare electronic parts come from E-*** from other owners parting out the machine. You can make this machine last forever if you buy cheap used parts.
Only thing I would buy new is the Outer Tub Bearings and Spinner Support bearings and a new Clutch Pulley if a Leaky Tub seal takes out the One-Way Roller clutch bearings.
See these post for my credentials as FAV6800A owner that knows the machine from Control Board to Outer Tub rebuild.
