I can not pull up a diagram for this model number.
Open the control panel and see if there is a printed circuit board in the right hand corner.
If so, I will have to remember which 2 wires to bypass and you will get spin.

I apologize for the false hope.
The diagram posted by AJ does not show the board I was referring to.
