Can i bypass the lid lock on a amana washer model ntw4605ew


Can you do it? Yes.
Do I recommend it? NO.
The lid lock it to prevent injury to the people near the washer, as without it stopping the machine, the agitator will turn with the lid open.
So.
If you will open the top up, you should see the lid switch, and you should see the electric wires attached to it.
With the machine unplugged, you can disconnect the wires to the lid switch and attach them to themselves, and the lid switch will then be by-passed.

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.

How do i bypass the lid lock on a new samsung washer ON A MOD#WH5471ABWXAA01


You can not by pass the lid lock on the new washers the rely on the signal that is sent to the computer to operate. It is a safety feature, the washer will not work without the lock operating. Why do you want to by pass it?

How to by pass the lid lock switch on a Kenmore elite Oasis HE washmachine


Not a real good idea except under emergency situations, as the lid lock is a safety switch to prevent access to the washer during spin cycles when the drum is operating at high speed and you don't want foreign objects (like hands) coming into contact with a high speed rotating drum or its contents. If you have the unit open enough to cut the wires, you had enough access to replace the switch, which you can get at SearsPartsDirect.com or any Sears Service Center in your area. If you are hell-bent on operating the machine in an unsafe condition, just connect the bare ends of the wires with a wire nut, which will perform the same circuit connection as the closed switch. Tape the connected wires away from any moving parts, don't let any bare wire come in contact with any metal and keep the lid closed during all parts of the wash, rinse and spin cycles.

How to bypass lid lock PART NUMBER: W10238287


First off, its not a good idea to by pass a door lock assemble. This lid lock sends a signal to the control board and lets the board know the lid is down and locked, there's not a way to bypass this feature.

Having trouble with my whirlpool cabrio . . . showing "DU" . . .


The F30 error code (dU) will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.



Door Unlock Error

A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked.
It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error.


Door Lock Mechanism broken.
Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


If it is a cabrio:
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state.





TEST #8 Door Lid Lock
Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock).
1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests.
2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1.
4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the
resistance values....



Component/Resistance Unlocked/Resistance Locked/Contacts Measured/Contacts Measured:


Motor Winding/35 ±5 O/35 ±5 O/P12-2/P12-3/
Lock Switch - Home/0 O/Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-4
Lock Switch - Lock/Open Circuit/0 O/P12-1/P12-7
Lock Switch - Lid/Lid Closed = 0 OLid Open = Open Circuit/Lid Closed = 0 O Lid Open = Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-5


If resistance values are good, go to step 5. If switch measurements do not match the values shown in the table for unlocked (or locked) conditions, a problem
exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock.

5. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Replace machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 to verify repair.
