The newer top loading washer designs don't use standard switches as was typical many years ago.
Today, these washers use a magnetic switch, and bypassing is not easily possible, due to the logic circuits that monitor the washer and all the various cycles.
For any reputable tech to provide a instructions to bypass any safety feature, would be highly irresponsible and would expose us to legal action by this site and the product manufacturer.
Please understand, providing a way to defeat a product's safety feature is against the law and will remain on the internet for years to come, along with the person(s) that provided it, exposing me and my family to a potential lawsuit - sorry, but I wouldn;t do that for my own family, yet alone some stranger.
Just chaulk it up to new technology, just like seat belts and air bags have changed auto safety.
Hope you understand and find this Very Helpful - Enjoy your new washer and best regards!

Door lock replacement vid and more good stuff
Bonus stuff: Wax motor 101 featuring R11 and Q6 swap out and other cool stuff
Note: both the motor control and the central control has to know that the lock is in place, so the wax motor does 2 things! It locks the door and then sends info back to the central control and the motor control on various models. So the wax motor is crucial. A red wax motor is a new and improved wax motor.

SOURCE: The washing machine (Kenmore 80
is a clear evidence of a broken lid switch. Power to the drive motor is
routed through the lid switch during the drain/spin cycle. The machine,
therefore, cannot drain and spin when the lid switch is not working.
The drain pump doesn't work because it is directly coupled to the rear
spline of the motor. Replace the lid switch to address the problem.
Release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.
Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.
The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.
Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.
Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and lay the front on a cushioned floor to access the lid switch.
Remove the lid switch ground and mounting screws then release the wire harness from the metal retainers. Pull the lid switch connector out and install the new lid switch in reverse order of the removal steps.
Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.
Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.
