how do you know which one it is? Cool pix. Is this the dishwasher board or a sample showing the triac? That orange guy is called and orange drop capacitor. Large cylindrical and mounted away from the board, it is built like that to withstand high heat transfer. Don't ask me what the hell it does.  :rofl:

no heat, maybe vibration

that's the Board ..

according to the Wiring Diagram Q3 controls the Water Inlet Valve

"Q3" is printed on the Board

Cool the price aint too bad neither:
The APP replacement board $83

But I keep asking myself Self? How much is that tiny part and how hard is it to replace and how do I verify that sucker is the bad boy? I will now sleep on it

Couldn't I disconnect the brown neutral wire at the board and splice it in at the terminal box to neutral and everything would work fine?

No if you do the pump will run continuosly because they are on the same circuit path. I've had this same problem and I can tell you it is not the triac that is the problem either because I replaced it and the low voltage persisted. I think the problem lies in the main IC chip not suppling a proper signal to the base leg of the triac.

How could a direct wired neutral wire to the water fill valve effect the drain pump?
It would start at the incoming power supply and terminate at the fill valve.
Return path would terminate at the float switch.

Because they are controlled by the same line relay the triac acts as a neutral switch to power the individual components.
