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...

Bypass lidswitch on a Amana 2013 top loader


Bypassing a safety device creates a hazard to users. No reputable technician would advise on this practice. Serious injury could result from operating a washer with the lid safety switch taken out of circuit. The switches are not that expensive and replacing a bad switch is the best option. Sorry to not provide the answer asked for.

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.

Hello I have a AMANA washer top loader model number NTW4700YQ. The washer will do the 5 second fill when you start a wash cycle and then switches over to "lid Lock" now after this it does nothing. you can...


The lid switch is one thing to check, make sure that it is not loose or broken, IT could also be the water level sensor, they become gummed up with softner sometimes.
