41 volts to water fill valve

(1/4) > >>

Whirlpool made Kenmore Elite dishwasher.
Getting 41 volts to water valve. Harness OK. 120 volts everywhere else in machine. Direct wire to water valve fills with water,washes and drains OK.
Reading 41 volts at valve and 41 volts leaving the control board.
My evaluation is a bad board.
Any seconds?

Model 665.15919001

Repair-man:
If there is 41 VAC leaving the board you have a bad board in my humble opinion.

Have you guys seen this? At one of the tv repair sites Jimbo listed a while back i came across this gadget: Smart tweezers. With this dude it could be possible to find a faulty capacitor in one of them control boards.

That is my assessment too. Had 41 at the valve terminals and 41 coming from the board.
I jumped the valve with external power and filled the machine,wash and drain was ok.

JWWebster:
If there was a voltage drop then one of these capacitors has probably failed on the control board.
