Samsung Washer Died Mid Cycle

I have a 6 year old Samsung washer - WF428AAL which shut down mid cycle (leaving clothes wet and door locked) several times over the past 2 months and timed out. In order to restart I shut off the power and reset. Last week it died again mid cycle with water in drum, during a load of towels. It will not restart. There is power to the noise filter, but beyond that the pcb's are sealed. No LED's work, no chime nothing, dead. Service tech assumes it is the main power board at rear but that board is on back order for 10-14 days and I have read it could also be the front board. There is no visible damage to front or rear board. Any pointers would be appreciated. Not much to access due to silicone around the boards. Any advice would be appreciated< I would have no problem installing the board if I can determine which one is in fact dead. Thanks

those repair videos are great, but the prices they charge for parts is criminal, get your part numbers and then goto ebay and get them there MUCH cheaper...I repaired my refrigerator as the heating element that defrosts the coil died, the web sight with the video wanted $30.00 plus for the part..ebay....$4.50 with free shipping.....I couldnt believe the difference..and if you wanted OEM part it was like $9.00 in change...

I have isolated the problem to one the two boards mentioned. What I am thinking is I may have a dead power relay on the main board. It is visible and only 24 v. If so, in theory if I bridge or jump across that relay as a test, I should have power? Agreed? any thoughts before I open the inbound parcels and reach the point of no return?
