Whirlpool-built Direct Drive Washer Gear Case Test Driver

Made in the USA!

Direct-Drive Gearcase Test Tool

Here's a unique tool that's really handy for quickly testing a direct-drive washer transmission, especially after rebuilding it before reinstalling it back in a washer.

Chucked in an electric screwdriver or drill, this driver allows you to instantly test-run your completed gear case to make sure you have everything together correctly before reinstalling into the washer. Take it from me, it's easy to put neutral-drain parts together wrong, and this little tool provides peace of mind that all's well.

This has been a really handy tool for me and several other techs I know, so I thought others would find them handy, too. They're a little more pricey than I'd like, but I have a lot of time invested in each one, and they're made of quality materials. Their shanks and hubs are solid brass, pinned to a plastic flatted drive hub that mates to the transmission input shaft.

NOTE: We've tested these extensively on transmissions that are removed from washers, but I will not warrant one if it's used to drive a washer with the transmission installed in the machine. I believe it would likely stand up to limited use that way, at least in agitate, but I will not guarantee that. This tool is not intended to drive the washer in place of its motor, but only to drive a "no load" transmission, with no tub attached.

Current supply on these is limited because I build them myself as time allows, and being a semi-retired "one man show" these days, this is just one of a gazillion projects demanding my time.

Runs $14.50 plus $9.00 Priority shipping/handling, $23.50 total (6% sales tax will be added if you're in PA)
