Out of curiousity schleven, could you tell the board was bad by visual inspection (fried resistor, bulging capacitor, green crap on contacts, etc.) or did you just replace the board and the machine started to work?

From personal experience just yanking out the board and cleaning the contacts works for me. Ain't seen a bad dryness board yet. Seen plenty ones with corrosion on them contacts though.

I did not see any corrosion or visible signs of damage.  I tried cleaning the contacts and reinstalling the board.  It would not advance.  When I put the new board in, it did.
