The 'start' button on our Kenmore dishwasher suddenly stopped working. We could press other buttons to set details of the wash and rinse cycle, but we couldn't actually get the dishwasher's start button to, well, start. So, we called Discount Appliance Repair. A repair person visited our house to diagnose the problem and determined that an electrical short on the circuit board underneath the button panel was the culprit. He told us that we could replace just the board and that the dishwasher would probably work. But he did share his experience that the button panel often stops working after installing a new board. DAR had successfully repaired an ice-maker for our refrigerator about six months previously, so we tend to trust them. So, we decided to replace both the panel and board just to be sure. The parts needed to be ordered, so we scheduled another date for them to come back and complete the repair. With the new parts, the repair person successfully made the repair in less than half an hour. As an added bonus, the repair person gave us some advice about prolonging the life of the panel and the board (keep moisture away from the front of the dishwasher--it can seep into cracks and short out the board). The dishwasher is working great again. Assuming it continues working into the distant future, we'll certainly continue to turn to DAR whenever any of our appliances misbehave.
