OK, so label me dumb. I reconnected the trailing cable to the carriage assembly and the electronics panel, etc. and began the startup test.
I haven't done anything with this model before, so in reconnecting the trailing cable, I damaged one end of a connector (they're fragile). Yes, now I know. The damage can't be repaired (they are REALLY fragile).
So, I've ordered a new trailing connector - and we'll have to wait a bit to see what the start up test tells me.
Thanks for your patience. I'll be back.

New drive belt and trailer cable arrived today. Installed both.
The trailing cable is a royal pain to thread and fold properly - as if I don't need to tell you that.
All that being said, I continue to get a trailing cable error on the self test.
I pulled both ends of the trailing cable and reseated them - taking extra care. Same error.

Main board is the older type with the the non-replacable fuse. I have one more thing to try, then we'll see.
As I do the self test, it starts OK, begins to cycle, then I give a quick "close right door" followed by the trailing cable error code.
So - what's a new or replacement board cost?
