Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 110.21302013. I have seen on older models where you can bypass the lid lock switch but, all of the solutions I have seen are with a 3 wire harness. Mine has a 4 wire harness (Red, White, Blue, Yellow) I need to know which 2 wires to jump so that I can continue to use my washer until the new part arrives.

The black or brown connection block on the motor should be color coded to match the harness. If not you will need to remove the control panel and find the service guide sheet. This will give you the wiring diagram for the whole machine.

Is there a white or black connector that clips on the motor switch? it should be an easy unplug and plug the new motor in.
I dont of any Manufacturer that uses single wire connectors any more.
Are you sure you got the correct motor?

HI. Check and see if you might have tripped the breaker. If there is a ground fault outlet close by. check that as well.
It sounds like you bypassed it properly. Try and reconnect the wires with the wire nut. Sometimes it doesn't connect properly.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Maytag Washer lid switch
Ohm out the blue/ blk terminals on the sw (remove wire harnes first and notate wire color connection) with an ohmmeter-- Reading should be zero (closed lid position)
Then ohm the ylw and white sw terminals-- reading should be 0 as well.
If I am not mistaken this sw has a plunger that sticks out, if hte unit goes off balance this could push the plunger in. to reset- pull the plunger out
