Thanks but when I look at my existing board currently in the fridge it is 12920710 but physically looks exactly like the W10890094 board .
And Maytag is telling me W10890094 is the right board? the item at location D9 on my EXISTING board has a large heatsink just like W10890094 whereas the one you are pointing me to WPW10310240 does not have this large heatsink (not sure if that makes a difference).

Ok since your in Canada it may different,

The manufacturer has replaced part number 12920710 part number W10890094.

Order this board:
Control Board W10890094

Yes that seems correct, however when I search them up I find W10890094 is close to $400 and WPW10310240 is $230 hmmm...
Is there any real difference to these boards besides what's at D9? Just curious as I would like to try the cheaper board but if it will fail than there's no point.
thoughts?

You have to use what the manufacturer says to use.

I have no clue what's at D9, the manufacturers don't provide board level schematics.

MFI2568AES new control board won't take refrigerator code 1411

As per Maytag customer service support , I replaced the main HV control board with brand new : W10890094

Problem is when programming the board, it will NOT take my refrigerator's CODE 1411. It just beeps won't flash and accept as per the programming instructions.

I've read online of others experiencing this and they used code: 0302 - this managed to get it accepted but they've had ice issues (not sure yet I'll report back)

Fridge seems to work, water is dispensing, ice is currently empty so can't report on that.

Not sure why following Maytag support instructions and still having issues getting this board to work with 1411.

The new board box says: W10890094 but the actual sticker on the board reads: 12920710 (this was the actual number on my old board as well so it matches up fine).

Any ideas on why the 1411 code will not get accepted?

Where did you buy the part from?

Remember, when you receive a new board there are instructions that come with it to program it.

Where the instructions in the box? If not, then you got a used board and you should send it back and get a NEW board.:)
