Where did you get the board at? You must buy a NEW OEM board or the programming will not work period!

Here's the NEW OEM board for your model:
Control Board W10890094


I'm attaching the programming instructions below.

found out what was wrong for this model there is more than one board that you can order there is one up to serial #13 and one for 13 and above the
the board that jake has above is the one i ordered as from marcone parts break down they only give ;you one option and thats the one jake posted whirlpool
tech line gave me a differnt code to put in there to get the ref to run but everything works except the icemaker so i will have to order the correct board thanks for your hep
