Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.
What is the model number of your unit, please?
I can relate completly. Got a laptop Im about to do the same with.
Ok lets try some diaagnostics and see what shows.
Please see the screen shot bellow for the information to place the unit into the diagnostics mode. Additional pages to follow.
Lety me know what you come up with and we can go from there, ok?
Ok Mike. The diagnostics should point you to the failed component.If it doesnt then there are two possibilities. The main control board (already replaced) and the User Interface/encoder.
The manufacturer thought of all the other possibilities for things brealking down except for the two most important parts.
Let me know how the diagnostics go. Especially if the unit will not perform any of them correctly.
Have a good evening.
Yup. As I figured it might do. The F1 is a good error code but the F 68 is not. This indicates a control issue. As you have already replaced the main control that leaves the UI encoder.
Replace the encoder and you should be good to go.
FYI: I just had an identical unit a few days ago. Same scenario. Replaced main board and still had the problem. Replaced UI encoder and unit is working fine now.
Please let me know if you require further assistance, or information. If not, please rate me ok service or better so that I may be compensated for helping you. Thank you.Best, Smitty

Let me check one more thing before you order it. Just to be sure.
That would be great! where did you get that information? I just went to the tech site and got the tech sheet for this model number.

I checked the tech sheet and it is showing the F68 as a good code. The F1 and F68 both indicate a failed main board.
What I would do is exchange the new main board as defective. Install the new board and if it still does this THEN replace the encoder.
Here is a copy of the wiring diagram for this model number.
That may be the problem. If the unit is sensing that as an out of balance then that could cause the problem. That should set an error code though.
A tool that I always keep in the truck is a piece of garden hose about 3' long. Put one end of it near your ear and move the other end around the unit. When the noise is the loudest the hose will be pointing at the source.
That should help you pin point the noise.
