Hi,

3 Days ago, my samsung washer just stopped working and won't turn on again.
checked power source and other basic stuff, all normal.

Called a technician and after 15 mins, he said that the Control board needs to be replaced: 500$ + tx.

I have several questions:
1: how can I be sure that the problem is really the control board?
2: Is it easy to replace it myself?
3: I have been checking for parts and I find wf218anb/xac and xaa, what is the difference? (the same but one in US, other in Canada?)
4: I found several part numbers for the control board that seem Identical, is anyone of those good with the WF218ANB/XAC?:
DC92-00287C, DC92-00288A, DC92-00200C

thank you

Hi,

1: how can I be sure that the problem is really the control board?

Sometimes/many times you cannot....or sometimes we take an educated guess.

2: Is it easy to replace it myself?

With the power off, yes....with the power on, not so much.

3: I have been checking for parts and I find wf218anb/xac and xaa, what is the difference? (the same but one in US, other in Canada?)

XAA is USA, XAC is Canada.

4: I found several part numbers for the control board that seem Identical, is anyone of those good with the wf218anb/xac?:
DC92-00287C, DC92-00288A, DC92-00200C

Call and have a Canadian parts depot look up yours.
