How do I bypass lid switch on my washer?
I have a Maytag ensignia washing machine that the lid switch is not functioning properly. If I manually depress the switch, the machine will work. However, for some reason, the lid itself is not able to close the connection.
Can I just hardwire around this switch? There are five wires going into the switch. White, Black, Yellow, and 2 reds bundled together.
How do I do it?

I would appreciate any help you can give me. I need to do about 5 loads tonight before I leave for a month tomorrow.

The only way is to ohm check it with a multimeter.
Check for continuity between the black (L1) wire and the red (SW) wire, and the white wire and the yellow wire with the lid open. In the closed position, check for continuity between the black wire and the yellow wire.

I am having the same problem...I already purchased the the strike...that did not help...I am planning to purchase the lid lock assembly if this fix works....That is, I would like to bypass the switch temporarily to see if the washer than spins....In essence, would you know how to bypass the lid lock of this particular unit. I have looked on youtube...and onlly found instructions for lid locks with three wires...whit..grey and green....
The videos say to jump the grey and white wire together....Ready to apply this fix I open my machine and voila....there are four wires...red..white..blue and yellow....Which wires would I have to jump...I really appreciate it...I bought this washer two years ago and already does not work....Would you be able to pm me some help . washer is Maytag
