Hello: Like several others that have written in, I am also having the same issue with part AP4442356. There is what appears to be a part number that is stamped on the PC board itself, and the original number is: 6870EC9203A. The number that is stamped on your Part #AP4442356 is 6870EC92458. There are several plugs that do not seem to fit at all, and the layout of the circuit board parts is significantly different. What ever happened with the others that had the same issue? Thank you
Answer Bob, We could not find any information in regards to wiring or a change in the connector locations on part no. 6871ER1078T, and we have had no responses from the "others who had the same issue". The numbers on the board are usually the board manufacturers part or reference number and has little or nothing to do with the board operation. As noted in a previous post " Some of the connections look like they won't fit, but do when you try them. The first thing I would do is to compare the new board to the old board. If the connectors are the same, you need to try different directions in reference to plugging the connectors onto the board." You may want to use the wiring diagram as a "locator" chart, and verify the connector and component it attaches to are proper.
I am attempting to replace the PCB. The one I received has many of the same connections, but two or three of the wires in my machine don't seem to have a corresponding place to connect to (number of prongs are incorrect and/or color isn't on the board). Do I have the correct board?
Answer Hello Carollyn,
I have checked all of the information I can locate on your model and see no different references pertaining to the board being changed. Some of the connections look like they won't fit, but do when you try them. The first thing I would do is to compare the new board to the old board. If the connectors are the same, you need to try different directions in reference to plugging the connectors onto the board. If they don't look the same, we need you to send us your full model AND serial numbers to send the situation to research, as they will not research anything without the serial number also as this sometimes has a bearing on the particular parts on the unit.
