Hi, My 9 year old Neff S5456 dishwasher gave up the other day. According to my wife it went pop (shortly after switching it on) and then started to smell a bit and hasn't shown any signs of life since. Incidentally it also tripped the mains elec. I've taken it apart and found that the circuit board is fried in a couple of places. The copper track has vaporised and a couple of components have exploded. So, it sounds starightforward to simply get another board and replace it, but as it will cost around £150 for this I'm a little cautious about assuming it is the board that has just given up on it's own, and not been caused by a fault somewhere else. I'd hate to put a new one in and fry that in the same way. The reason I'm cautious is that a day or so before, I felt it wasn't working just quite right. It was going through it's cycle without problem but during it's 25 minute drying period it had a faint sound of a motor/pump running. There was also a faint ticking from around the base...the only reason I heard it was because I knelt down to listen more closely to the motor/pump. Does anyone have any experience of fried circuit boards and whether it's likely to have been caused by another fault or can offer any other advice? Any info on the problem and good places to get new and used spare parts is appreciated. Thanks.
