Customer Question
I have a Kenmore...

I have a Kenmore 385 machine that apparently needs a computer board replaced. Is this something I can do?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I will need to get that info. I will reconnect when I have this in hand. Thank you

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Can't find a local repairman. Probably need to do it myself.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Model***********and probably 20 years old

I have done other research and have spoken on line with Sears appliance people and have been advised that the part # I need is###-##-####and not###-##-####and the cost is $14.00. not $300+ that you advise. I also need a 3.15 amp fuse. I was interested in instructions for installing the P-board and fuse. The machine I have did not cost the $300+ that you advised is needed for repair. Unless you feel you know more about this than I have been able to learn, please advise, otherwise you apparently won't get paid and I am out $5.00
