We have a FDM 550-P dishwasher that needs it's circuit board

Customer Question

We have a FDM 550-P dishwasher that needs it's circuit board replacing as we cannot turn it off. How much would it cost to have it repaired?
JA: What's the brand and model of your dishwasher? How old is it?
Customer: Hot Point FDM 550-P
JA: How long has this been going on with your dishwasher? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I had a local independent repair out yesterday who said that was the problem & that we would need a Hot Point repairman to replace the circuit board and code it. We think the machine is over 5 years old but do not have the original purchase papers.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I have just explained what I think we need. We will consider the cost of the repair versus buying a new dishwasher!
