whirlpool AWO 10761.

This answer was rated:

I have a whirlpool AWO 10761. The blue reset drain light does not go out. Do I need a new drain pump? I have tried resetting as directed by whirlpool: turning off at the mains and waiting thirty minutes, no difference.

Hi I am sorry to hear that, I am Tech Michael
I will be helping you today.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and take some back and forth until we can be sure of all the details.
We want to be sure we can resolve your issues correctly and as fast as possible for you.
Does the unit drain at all?
Also how old is your washer?
Thank you for your patience!

Hi Michael

The unit still works but sometimes we have a small leak from it at the end of the cycle. the unit is approx 5-6years old

Hi Tony and thank you for that information.
This is not the drain pump, it is the main control board.
The little leak could be coming from one of the hoses or fittings.
Both are easy to fix and I will help you with this.
The best place to get the main board is Espares, I have listed all their contact info for you below.
No additional cost to you to rate and then I will stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
Thank you Tony and have a great day!

thanks, ***** ***** the phone to them now, can't find the part on their website

Just got through, thanks for all your help. will rate u but part is so expensive that we may as well buy a new washer.

Hi a lot of people will do just that because of the cost. But I can tell you it is going to be the main control board from all you have mentioned.
I wish I had better news for you on this I really do.
