    Ok, your gas valve is in range.

    The spark module board is inside the control panel, that likely got soaked too, so I'd replace it. When that spark module does not detect the flame properly the flame will light and go out after 5 to 15 seconds.

    Here's the spark module for your model you can order:
    Spark Module WPW10331686


    Make sure you turn the breaker off to your range before replacing it.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Replaced the spark module. Moved the oven back in place. Plugged it back in. Turned on Bake. Fan turned on and click sound of spark ignited flame... for the same 5 to 15 seconds, then it went out. After that, selecting Bake would turn on the fan but no spark. I probably could have unplugged the oven and plugged it back in to prove the same result consistently, but as that point I was exasperated and just threw in the towel. So now we are up to:

    Replaced master control board (appliance manager)
    Replaced display board
    Replaced thermostat
    Confirmed with Multi-meter that gas valve was reading correctly
    Replaced spark module

    Is there anything left to replace or at this point do I just ignore sunk cost and buy a new oven?

    Ok,

    Make sure the wire between the oven igniter and the spark module is not pinched or broken and make sure the connections are tight.

    Check the polarity of the supply voltage. Even if no ground is connected, the DSI control will not be able to sense the presence of a flame at the igniter if the polarity is reversed.

    Does the spark continue after a flame is present for those 5 to 15 seconds the flame is going?

    Does the broil flame stay on when you set it on BROIL?

    The broiler is not responding at all. It worked before the disaster but nothing since. Now when the unit has just been plugged in the Bake function will turn on for 5-15 seconds but then it goes out and won't come back on until you unplug/replug (then it goes out after 5-15 seconds).

    How would I know if the polarity is reversed? Keep in mind this was an even-driven problem (overflow of boiling water). Is the DSI the Spark Igniter? So far in taking this thing apart and putting it back together 3 times there has been no obvious sign of damage (such as scorch marks or burnt/loose wires) observed...

    The DSI is the spark module that creates the spark.

    You'll need to have a appliance tech. come out to see what's going on, I can't help you just on the forum here, to many variables when you get a spillage like that, I've tried to help you all I can.
