BTW...do I really need to replace another wax motor when it was replaced years ago, I have the "good" one  that is black plunger. They may have replaced machine board too even though there was no failure up to that time. The wiring schematic has hand written notes with re:different colored leads, etc on it from his install.

Sounds like you already have the new style wax motor.
Unless your technician see's something wrong with it I would say it should be ok to keep it.

thanks for all the advice, I'm just trying to do the "green thing" and keep this out the landfill and keep more money in my pocket. But it's hard when coonsidering a so, so Whirlpool front loader at Costco is $400.  Anyone have a clue why machine control board burned at backside of Conn 2 behind pin 8 which corresponds to Water Temp input 2(see attach of green board) ?

sorry, should have sent reply to forum, not personal.
Tech guy (A&E repair for Maytag/Sears) called to give me ETA and I described problem and told him I had already taken out the boards to which he said
1) wouldn't grant motor conversion kit under warranty as it was the board that failed, not the motor.
2) I had already removed parts so that voided warranty anyway. I was cognizant of that but I just didn't have time to put the boards back in place and button all up before he arrived. So I told him to go to next call, saved diagnosis fee of $65.

 I needed a washer to match the dryer so I picked up a MAH3000 from craigslist for $50 to get me through for now. My MAH4000 has all the updates like the new tub seal and wax motor but the MAH3000 has the original flawed seal and  wax motor and the moldy crap problem. I'll get some of the Affresh solution for now until  selling the MAH3000 washer after finding both boards for the MAH4000 from a scavenged MAH5500 or a working early serial number MAH5500. Remember I'm trying to match the dryer and keep my wife's insanity from rizing up again. I know this all sounds round and about but I didn't know the MAH3000 was that different than a 4000, although they look  identical the machine control board will not interchange.
