The bottom of the gearcase is where the shifter assembly is located. The drive system can be switched between the spin mode and the agitation mode. The drive system is monitored by a sensor on the shifter. The washer stops and signals an error code if the motor, sensor or mechanical parts of the shifter assembly fail. The shifter assembly should be replaced if it fails.
