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.

Simply attach both wires from the switch to jumper.

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.

there isn't any way to bypass this type of lid switch as in the old 2 wire type lid switches,as the 5 wire type lid switch you have has to be connected to the control board located behind the control panel,it has to see the lid is closed and sends a magnetic signal to the control board to start the wash cycle
