The wiring diagram for this washer is shown in the image below. The voltage supply going to the control board is traced in red and blue. The first step in troubleshooting this problem is to carefully check the voltage supply going to the control board. This type of live voltage check is normally performed by a technician.
You should only conduct this test yourself if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely execute it
. That test is described in the second image.
Unplug the washer
immediately after carefully conducting that live voltage check at the control. If you are not comfortable making that live voltage check using a volt/ohm meter, then I recommend that you have a service technician repair the washer. Here is a link for the Sears Service website:

If voltage to the control board is okay, you can check the user interface key panel using the information shown in that second image. The washer should be
when accessing internal components (other than that brief live voltage check described above). If the user interface control is okay and the control board is getting power, then the control board is probably bad even though it was just replaced. You could have a short circuit in one of the components connected to that control board. Before replacing that control board, you would need to check the resistance of each circuit connected to that control board for a short to the metal cabinet using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure infinite resistance between each connection on that control board and the metal cabinet frame. If you detect resistance from one of the loads on that control board, I recommend that you check the wiring and the components in that circuit.
