I need to replace the part P/N 8541034 Rev.C on my washer but I only find a different Rev. The part number is the same but the Rev is D or A. Does it work if is different Rev. or it has to be the same Rev.?
Answer Hello Pepe! According to your model number the motor control board is part number 8541034. This is a manufacturer replacement part and may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to the original. Thanks.
My basement had a slight flood, 3 inch of water. My washing machine now displays a f28 code mcu is not communincating with the ccu .. is my mcu damaged or need to be replaced.
Answer Hello Joe,
With you having a flood and the control board being on the base of unit it would be necessary to replace MCU 8541034. Before doing this check all your connections to make sure that they are fully seated.
Hi there- - I am pretty certain that I need a new control panel for my washer. I understand that this is a common problem with these models. Mine is 10 years old, and currently the 'start' button does not respond when the washer is programmed to wash. All of the other buttons work, but when I go to start a load, there is no response. Is this something that a novice can replace?, and if so are there installation instructions available? Thanks much.

I keep getting the Cl and CA codes. It seems to be washing fine and then throws the code. I had a full load and removed clothes till there were 3 under armour shirts in it. It was in the rinse cycle and threw the Cl code again. Is this going to be a problem with the motor control board?
Answer Jerry, Both error codes indicate an issue with the motor circuit. A couple of things you should check first. Mkae sure the washer is not overloaded. Check the voltage at the washer power cord, or outlet, when the tub is full of water and the motor starts the spin cycle, you must has a minimum voltage of 108 VAC when the motor starts. Check and make sure there is not a small article stuck between the tubs. If that checks OK, you'll need to check the wash motor windings for proper resistance. Using the color codes shown, and the resistance chart . Check for proper winding resistances. : Drive Motor : RD to BK = 2 - 4 ohms, YL to WH = 2 - 4 ohms, RD to YL = 5 - 7 ohms. If the previous checks are proper or within range(+/- 10%) then replace the motor control board.
