My Samsung dishwasher works if I press power On button

Customer Question

Hey. My Samsung dishwasher works if I press power On button within about 4 seconds of flipping the breaker. After about 4 seconds it goes back to unresponsive. Any idea what's happening? How do I fix it?

Do any lights or anything flash on it? Also what is the complete model?

It works fine if powered on within 3-4 seconds of the circuit breaker being cycled. Otherwise no lights turn on, power button is dead.
>>>Also what is the complete model?
I think the model number is ***** DMT800RHS. Or is that just the "series"?

Normally when that happens you have a bad main control board, that powers the interface board and if there is an issue that will happen. It is located behind the lower kick panel on the front of the unit.

Here is a link to the part for you to order

Thanks for sending a link to the part you believe is malfunctioning. There is a advisory that this part can be mistaken for the cause. Can you advise how I can know for sure? And if so is the control reasonably easy to swap - given I'm a fairly handy kinda guy? Or would swapping involve saudering and special tools to disassemble/reassemble?
