YOU CAN WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS TAKE THE 2 WIRES FOR THE SWITCH AND SPLICE THEM TOGETHER BY-PASSING THE SWITCH MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF BEFOR WORKING ON ,IF ITS A PRESSURE SWITCH THAT WORKS BY THE LID BEING CLOSED TRY TAPEING OR LOCKING IT DOWN THIS MIGHT BE EASYER

    Hi Superman_B_1....I am trying to bypass the switch on my CABRIO washer (WTW6400SW2) but I have white, brown, green and red wires. Which are the ones I should splice?

    Did anyone ever answer your question about which wires need to be spliced? I am trying to figure out the same thing.

    Does anyone have an answer to that question, which of the 4 wires do you splice and can it be done when you have 4 wires, without adding a switch?

LID LOCK SWITH ON ADMIRAL ATW4676BQ BROKEN, WHAT HAPPENS IF SWITCH IS BY PASSED BY CONNECTING WIRES SO ITS ON ALL THE TIME?


If its a micro switch it will not lock lid when running so machine will continue to run when lid is raised if it is bypassed.Most locks on washing machines are anti-child devices so might not be good idea if you have children.Machine will run and switch off when program finishes.

Lid lock broken can I overide?


Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
http://blog.kennyluong.com/Tricking-A-Maytag-Bravos-Washer/
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Can i bypass lid lock simpsom ezi lock its broken


You have to replace the switch. It has a "failsafe" design which prevents users from splicing the wires together.

Kenmore top loading washer locking lid switch bypass


Yes. Snip the wires at both sides of the switch. Then fuse the wires together with electrical tape. But before you do that...you state it's a 2011 model? It should still be under warranty.

Ok.. so I have already posted a question about my Kenmore elite oasis washer.. It was showing a dl error code, which I found out was a lidlock error... after looking at the lock closely, I see that they...


a replacement part should be sought and installed, you can bypass the switch, but the switch is there for a reason if you bypass it the spin cycle will not stop when opening the lid and injury to children or others can happen so this is not recommended
