Are you inclined to attempt DIY repairs?

I'm very DIY inclined. I actually took the washer apart a bit and cleared the door latch/lock tonight, got the clothes out at least.

Then I had DW help me pull the washer out from the wall so I could start disassembly and get to the main control board (which I priced at $200 online). However, once we moved it we found a rusted button cell battery on the floor underneath, and a little water that's apparently been slowly seeping out of the washer. At that point DW made the executive decision... time for a new washer.
