model AMW 405 1X approx. 6yrs old

OK and is it completely dead ? nothing on control ?

Customer:

completely dead

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, it is the control that is bad... a new one will cost around £95 + labor

KevinWhiteJA :

a new control board is available here

Customer:

just before it went completely the turntable stopped revolving then it failed

KevinWhiteJA :

well then it can be a bad turntable motor which costs around £35

Looking at the age of this appliance, it is not a good idea to spend £100+

KevinWhiteJA :

Two models that has same dimensions like your Whirlpool are available here and here
