That link is for the Sport model. I was already looking at the service manual for this from this website and I can't find anything so far?

Also, the display is very dim with two lines across the middle.

I went ahead (should have done this first) and plugged up an extra control panel that had a broken black plastic frame I had from another parts dryer and it works, except some of the lint caught fire. Man that stuff stinks! Now I just have to buy a small enough torx screwdriver to remove the board. Thanks! :2funny:

Glad I had an extra one laying around! I paid $150 cash for the set today. Nothing wrong with the washer. ::)
