The machine has a small magnet on the front of the lid. There is a sensor (Hall Effect probably) in the electronics block that senses if the magnet is there (lid closed) or not there (lid open). They aren't that well attached and seem to fall off and wind up in the wash, which means they get lost when the washing is being hung out.
The machine will not start without the lid closed you get a dE error code which means the lid is not shut. You can trick it temporarily by putting a small round magnet inside the front housing if you don't have a proper replacement, as the real one needs to be quite strong. Not sure what they cost, my husband just did the 'trick' to our daughters machine, but a small button magnet wasn't strong enough to trip the sensor from the lid position, he had to stick it right next to the sensor.
Shouldn't be that dear, you can buy blocks of very powerful neodymium magnets in varying sizes for under ten dollars.
