How do you bypass the lid lock on a Kenmore Elite washer?


Answer

How to Bypass a Washing Machine Lid Lock (Without Using a Key)

Turn off the washer and unhook the device from the wall outlet.

The holding tabs and/or screws that keep the top horizontal panel in place should be identified.

Look for the lid lock switch, which is located on the underside of the top panel and at the point where it is integrated into the appliance.

Reinstall the cover and reconnect the washing machine to the electrical outlet if it has been disconnected.

 

Another question was if it was possible to bypass the lid switch on a Kenmore washer.

Whenever the lid of your Kenmore washer is closed, the electrical circuit is completed by using the lid switch. If you do not have access to a volt-ohm meter, you may bypass the lid switch by connecting a jumper wire to the washer wiring harness to replicate the connection to the wiring harness.

 

In addition to the aforementioned, is it possible to skip the washer lid switch?

It is required to put a jumper wire in the lid-switch circuit in order to run the washer through a complete cycle while the lid is left opened. Aside from the obvious concerns of using a washing machine with the lid open, this is a straightforward procedure.

What is the mechanism of a washing machine door lock?

Whenever you close a door, the latch on the door pushes against a sliding bar within the door lock, which slides over and triggers an electrical component inside the door lock, which locks the door shut. Meanwhile, electricity is transmitted through the interlock and on to the remainder of the machine using a relay.
