I have looked to this forum as a "goto" place when I can't use tech support, via my contractors' tech support.

Our company is a two person operation, and is almost 2 yrs old. My background is from IT Networking and ElectroMechanical Controls for Commercial HVAC Systems, as a technician.  I left that world because of the brutal nature of big industrial Controls Contracting. 

Appliance repair, believe it or not, is more fulfilling on a daily basis.  I, no longer have 10 bosses telling me what should be "top shelf" items.

AJ, I would pleased to join this group

You can usually tell if the drain pump is running by simply listening to it. If you can't hear the drain pump running or trying to run by it making a humming sound then I would see if the drain pump motor was getting voltage to it. I would check to see if it was getting voltage by using a multimeter to test for voltage at the drain pump.

From the Wizard of ID cartoon (years ago)...

A little boy approaches the King seated at the throne...

King: "Hello,young man, and what do you want to be when you grow up?"

Boy: "I want to be on society's Most Wanted List."

King: <surprised>  "You want to be a criminal?"

Boy: " No, a repairman that knows what he's doing."

I'm canceling my request.  My customer found someone locally who was parting one out and bought the pulley for $60.  Before she found it I was looking at having a new bronze bearing machined for it.  One shop quoted me $85.  Installed the used pulley today, one more Halo of Heat saved from the scrap heap.

So I went back today to press some buttons...
I plugged in the fridge and the display was on normal.
Weird, but cool by me. I put the new board back in it started cooling, i collected my money and went on down the road.
I guess the secret is to leave it unplugged for 24 hours twice...
Damn computers.
