Bypass The Door Switch

Bypassing the door switch should only be done for testing purposes and not a replacement for a bad door switch. When you bypass the door switch the washer will agitate and spin with the door opened and that could hurt anyone that may stick a hand inside of the washer drum.

The Motor Coupler

This part is used instead of a belt. Is a 3 piece part that is connected between the motor shaft and the transmission shaft. When the motor runs it turns the transmission shaft making the washer agitate or turn the clutch to spin the drum according to the direction that the motor is turning.

If the motor coupler is broken, it will make a grinding noise and it will not turn the transmission.
