Yes - simply jumper the two wires on the switch (chassis side).
the part on the lid is actually a magnet.

How to bypass lid lock so washer will run?


You don't. Bypassing a lid-lock is careless verging on plain wrong. The door will likely blast open when the machine is full of water and flood your home, a child could crawl inside and get hurt while the unit is running, and thirdly: lid locks are not a simple affair that can be jumpered with a single wire. Just buy the new lid-lock and skip the disaster!

How can I bypass the lid lock model # NTW47018QO


the lock function was added to elimimiate the danger of someone sticking there body parts inside machine (they can kill a human or pet) while its operating this is a safety function and really should not be bypassed unless in very special uses , this function used to be done by a lid switch that shut power off to machine , the lid lock now is easy to disengage just press the stop button in as soon as machine stops moving the the lid should unlock allowing you to open it to Add/remove items , I do warn folks that if any items are added after fill step the auto water level sensor has already made its calculation of needed water so what's in there after more clothes are added will not have sufficient water level to clean properly resulting in disappointed washing results

You can open the top lid by inserting the putty knife under the top part. There are two clips holding the top part. When it pops up you can open the top part when the lid lock remains working.

Lid lock bypass


Your "lid lock" really is an interlock to prevent machine operation when the lid is open. I use a plastic clothespin to close the interlock because the lid on my washer got bent

Locking mechanism


replace the lid lock ! its a safety measure. I would not recommend removing or bypassing lid lock. just replace it. without the lid lock it will work with lid open. good-day ! if you really what to bypass the lid lock. Find the wire that goes to the switch. Splice the wires together and the machine will think the lid is shut all the time. if you can not get top of washer off. just call an appliance center and give them the model and serial number. and they should be able to tell you. good-day !
