Chit Chat / Re: Why do electronic control boards for appliances cost so much?

A couple of years ago, after one of Whirlpool's more extensive/(expensive) parts repricing schemes, I ran across this while checking for reasons for some really bizarre price increases.  I think it explains it all.  <  http://www.accenture.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/PDF/Accenture-Whirlpool-Europe-Parts-Optimization-Credential.pdf  >   
I'm convinced that the reason appliance controls have gone completely electronic is that it is far less expensive to produce electronic boards than electro-mechanical timers, etc.  It's all about maximizing short term profit, the heck with reliability and customer satisfaction.  Let me know what you think.

It does have a shell, so it'll have to come out.  Thanks for the reply.  I placed my order and already received my tracking #.  Appliance parts pro has great service.

Supco makes one... ADC4099 I'd be kind of nervous to use a generic board. I don't see it available anywhere but ebay.

No should just need the cables. Yours are more than likely white ended, while New ones should be black. If your unit has side panels, the unit needs fully removed from cabinets. If it doesn't, a few inches out and you will be fine

Not to disagree but I've seen these units spin just fine with lower panel removed? Is that right?

Usually just rear tub with the bearings. Top loads are not too bad!

If it won't drain the water out then I would clean out the pump filter to see if it resolves your issue.
F28 is usually related to the MCU but you need to check ohm's/continuity with Digital Multimeter (available at most Hardware Store's for $10-20) on the MCU before replacing.
Reply with Model# (located on front panel inside the door) so I can find the Service Repair Manual that includes troubleshooting instruction's.

F28 means SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR
The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
Possible Causes/Procedure:
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the Motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
- Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
- Verify that all grounding switches (located inside the lower Front Panel and Rear Panel) are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.
