That link is for the Sport model. I was already looking at the service manual for this from this website and I can't find anything so far?

Also, the display is very dim with two lines across the middle.

I went ahead (should have done this first) and plugged up an extra control panel that had a broken black plastic frame I had from another parts dryer and it works, except some of the lint caught fire. Man that stuff stinks! Now I just have to buy a small enough torx screwdriver to remove the board. Thanks! :2funny:

Glad I had an extra one laying around! I paid $150 cash for the set today. Nothing wrong with the washer. ::)

That's what I planned. I bought a Duet last year with a pedastal for $100 and the guy said it worked just needed a knob. Once I got it home and took it apart there was alot more than that wrong. The inner user interface black frame was cracked where towo screws mounted it to the frame, the drum seal was bad, etc. I decided to part it out to make my money back, I've used the motor, and heating element so far. Now this. I think I have recovered the money I lost.
