LOL! It shows a box with a wiring harness in it, but no wiring diagram. Also note that the control board is only available through their home service. If there was a full wiring diagram, you might be able to trace down the problem with a multimeter, but there are times with modern appliances that you need a tech or it is more cost/time effective to bring one out.

The main possibilities - bad control board ($160 plus install costs), bad buss strip, bad cable connector, bad switch/variable resistor. Some of those may be hidden / difficult to access / require special tools. I doubt you will get out of this for less than $300, and it honestly is time to be considering replacement rather than repair.

As a side note- you may have fewer appliance issues in the future if you have a "whole house surge suppressor" installed. The computer circuitry in some appliances is not very well protected against power problems.
