    Hello everyone!

    I've come across a washing machine with a damaged circuit board thats way to pricey to warrant replacement, so, I remembered a concept I had some years ago.

    Is it possible, feasible or at least, worthwhile to completely bypass the circuitry of some machines and appliances with your own, and have it controlled with a commercial computer?

    The challenge is going to adapt all the sensors and actuators in the appliance and writing a suitable control program.

    Making a DIY washing machine control board is a tall order. Usually you can buy used boards on ebay for a reasonable price.
