OK!! First of all, there is a change in process and he was not with Fixya any more.Being a customer, i really value your service but before you change any product, you should have check the same. If your washing machine is unable to complete spin cycle and i say, change control board. It's not fair. Even if i have said ( Might be a chance that i might had the same situation and we might have changed the control board ), would not you ask an expert How you need to check and how would you make sure that this is a fault. It might be Timer. It might be many other reasons.
Believe me, Few months ago, my car broke down and i paid more than $1000 to only CHECK the fault. The real person options are not always cost effective. Tell me honestly, how many times you had been ripped out by a real expert in your hometown??????
it's better to consult with logic . If you don't use logic - I am sorry . There is no one who could save you!!
