That's why I replace. I was told that's what I need to do. Now I have the same code

Hmmm let me look into something for you and I will be right back with you. Sorry you are having to deal with something like this. Was the board brand new that you put on the unit?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No but was guarenteed to work. Bought on ebay
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

I sadly think the problem is with that control board and you may want to send it back. 888 is not an error code for whirlpool which tells me the board is not working.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The other one was reading exact same thing
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

I am referring to the main control board being the problem. This is the part I am talking about

Are you still with me?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I just replaced it 2 yrs ago
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Never had that code when I replaced it
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

You replaced the control board or the main control board recently? The problems are not always the same but the fact that your receiving a code that is not something from whirlpool the only options for fixing it is either the control board or main control board.
