If the board (PCB) is not damaged you can re-solder the wires back. If the PCB is damaged you should be able to get new ones by looking up the make and model of the device and look for the specific part.
Do you still have water down the bottom of the unit? Usually when you are hearing that pump noise that is from the drain pump and the reason it is constantly running is usually because there is an obstruction either blocking the hose or blocking the pump from evacuating all the water from the unit. This is a fairly common issue on all dishwashers. Remove the spinner on the inside of your unit and assure that there is nothing blocking the port exit hole. If there is not then you will have to de-install the dishwasher and pull the unit out and remove the drain hose to assure nothing is stuck inside the hose and at its connection point usually to the disposal under your sink. Remember to turn off the water as well as the power before you de-install. If you have any further questions message me back. I await your reply Thank you, Rick
Check the price of a new circuit board against the price of a new machine. Take into consideration that installing a new circuit board yourself might see the new one go the way of its predecessor due to some other fault. Have a qualified technician give you a quote on the repair and again compare prices.
I don't know if WD are like Maxtor but M won't supply you with a replacement pcb - they want you to buy a new drive.
If you can find an IDENTICAL WD drive buy it. Take care and remove the circuit board from the new drive. (It's very straightforward). Now remove the circuit board from the duff drive and replace it with the board from the new drive.
Plug it in and test. Does it work? Does it mount?. Now copy all the data from the drive onto something else as a priority. Once you have completed the transfer, remove the drive, remove the circuit board and refit it to the new drive. Mount the new drive, format it and then copy all your files back again.
Use the new drive and keep the old for safe-keeping.
The only thing that can go wrong (other than being ham-fisted) is that there is a problem with the old drive that has caused the fuse to blow and it could well cause the fuse in the new Circuit board to blow. But that's a chance you've got to take if you want your data back.
The circuit board that we use to replace the old ones are a new generation of circuit boards. To this day i have never had to replace a circuit board that i had already replaced, and beleive me i replaced a fair share.
