Hello, my melted friend.  First, on behalf of everyone here at the Samurai School and the entire Muslim world, all four of my wives and all 17 of my children, and even my camels and yaks, let me say how much we grieve with you.  Like the prophet Job, truly Allah tests you to bring us wisdom even through the experiences of infidels.  Thank you for sharing this spiritually edifying tale of personal tragedy and triumph.

I have scoured the Internet using my iMac powered by a proprietary camel dung and lime juice battery and a satellite uplink in search of a schematic of your touchpad.  Alas, all I could find is the general schematic for the dryer.  As you can see in the attached image, the keypad is represented as a simple box. I pray this serves your needs.

Wouldnt  your home owners insurance cover this? They may replace the dryer completely. After deductibles of course.

It looks to me like Maytag is looking for another class-action suit if we start seeing many more like this.

What will it take, having a house burn down and killing someone???????

I'm surprised your local power company wouldn't do anything, I've heard that at a time of power failure and subsicant power surge destroying appliance that the power company sometimes will have you fill out a report of time and date when occurance happened and reimburse for repairs sometimes.

Samurai's 17th Law of Appliance Repair states that, "Raw power is dirty power."  Every 120v appliance I have with any kind of electronics in it is protected by surge suppressors.  This includes my Gibson front-load washer, microwave, bread machine, gas range, and anything else I don't want to waste time fixing.  I just use the little $10 plug-in surge suppressors that you get at the hardware store.  The computers are all on UPS and mondo-surge suppression with EMI filtering.  More than once, falling trees have taken down our power lines, creating spectacular fireworks in the process yet I have never had a failure of an electronics board in any of my appliances.

I live in tornado alley. We get some terrific thunderstorms and lightning at times with high winds. When I purchased this home about 12 years ago I got on of those whole house surge suppressors that fits behind the power meter. That coupled with the small surge suppressors on my computers and I have been fortunate despite many power outs via storms to have no failures as well. The whole house suppressor was like 400 bucks 12 years ago installed, and very much worth the peace of mind.

Defintely the way to go, superior to the piece-meal protection from the wall outlet suppressors because it protects the wiring in your walls, too.

:?WOW! that must have been one hell of a Surge, I've seen MOV's blow, but that looks like there was a short in the harness, good thing the house didn't catch on fire!

I would try to claim it on House Insurance, but if your like the rest of us, you have a $500 deductable, and then they will prorate it for being a couple of years old.

Sorry, but it sounds like you need to either watch ebay for someone selling parts, or just buy a new one.

:(
