SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to bypass lid lock control on kenmore elite oasis type 581 washer model 110.28032701

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

How do I bypass the lid lock on my amana washer? It is a top loader.


It isn't wise to modify appliances. If anything goes wrong your insurance pay out could be greatly reduced or withheld.

To bypass a lock or switch it is necessary to disable it or to modify the wiring to send the required signal to the controller to allow the cycle to go forward.

Modern digital technology in later machines has made such modifications much more difficult and impractical...

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.

Locate the switch by the lid and simply connect a wire between the two wires going to it to affect a bypass.

Locking mechanism


replace the lid lock ! its a safety measure. I would not recommend removing or bypassing lid lock. just replace it. without the lid lock it will work with lid open. good-day ! if you really what to bypass the lid lock. Find the wire that goes to the switch. Splice the wires together and the machine will think the lid is shut all the time. if you can not get top of washer off. just call an appliance center and give them the model and serial number. and they should be able to tell you. good-day !
