Hello,

My washing machine motor has 3 wires coming from the coil to a plug . one wire (white) is connected to a small black flat box above the coil. It is burnt in the female spade connector attached to that box. the said box has another single white wire exiting straight to the socket with other wires. Due to lockdown i am wondering if i can by pass the (box) and connect it direct?

Can't say without more information about what the wire was connected to. In general, you should attempt to understand what the wire was for and why it got burned. Defeating any protection circuits in anything is generally a bad idea. Is it worth burning your house down?

If the small black item is connected to the coil, it could be a thermal sensor, it is not that plain in the photo, need a close up of the small black item, if that is what you are referring to ?

So it would seem that the connection fried due to high resistance connection?
If so, needs to be reconstructed with the correct 'spade' terminals.
