I first took off the back of the washer to check if water was getting to the pump and out of it. It was. I followed the troubleshooting instructions in the Technical Manual that came with the Washer. I measured voltage with a voltmeter at the pins on the circuit board that the manual said to. It seemed that no power was going to the pump from the circuit board. I did not trust my findings. I called an Applicance repair company, and they repeated what I had done and concluded the board was no good. Their price for the board was the same as Partselect but they wanted another hours labor to install it, which was $90. I ordered the board myself, and incredibly it arrived in one day and was packaged beautifully. I unplugged the old, there are seven easily indentified plugs, plugged in the new, and the drain cycle worked again. In the end I saved myself $90 dollars but could of saved more if I had trusted my original troubleshooting conclusion. PastSelect was awesome. I still cant figure out how the part got to me so quickly.
