Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. IF you are handy it is not difficult. When you say damaged by foam how do you mean?
Hi Mike, ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX plumber so I'm handy. I placed a wash of soapy cloths into the machine and foam filled the drum during the wash, not long after that the machine malfunctioned with the symptoms i described. I flushed out the filter but it made no difference
If you access the board you may find there is simply a loose connector. Often there is evidence if the board is damaged like scorch marks. Here is a video that shows how to access the board if you want to inspect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcgN-1oQ4Ks

ok thank you, XXXXX XXXXX know what PCB is required for my machine, as in code number and also what supplier is best to use?
I usually remove the board and order by the numbers on the board. Cross reference with the model number. I don't really have a specific supplier that I use. Shopjimmy is a good source for parts. It depends on a lot of situations such as availability and price. Sometimes I will get them off of Ebay. Most times it is advertised as new but I doubt they are as many are salvaged from machines that were damaged in shipping and situations like that. I especially use Ebay when I am getting parts for myself or when the difference in price to new is very large. So I guess to make a short story long, I would cross reference the model number with the numbers on the board and find the match on Ebay that is the best mix of price and newness and warranty. I never order from anyone that does not allow returns as about 30% will end up being DOA.
