How to replace the washing machine lid switch

Sep 30. Let Me Repair.

If your washing machine is not working, the lid switch might be broken or defective.

The washing machine lid switch is the safety mechanism installed to avoid injury while using the washing machine. It is attached near the door cover to ensure the door cover is closed before operating the washing machine. It also stops the washing machine when the door cover is opened while the washing machine is running. It breaks the power supply to the washing machine motor and the washing machine stops working.

The washing machine lid switch assembly with wire harness is fixed onto the door cover base of the washing machine body. The lid switch ensures that the washing machine door is closed while it is spinning. In case, the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not spin. In case, the washing machine is not spinning, but the washing machine is still agitating, the lid switch is likely broken or defective.

We don’t recommend bypassing this safety feature. It is not recommended to operate the washing machine without closing the door cover.

However, the Lid switch bypass can be done by looping a small wire between the normally open contacts of the lid switch. This has to be done only for testing purpose and if the lid switch is not working, it has to be changed to a suitable Lid switch. It is an electro-mechanical relay contact that is operated when the door cover is closed and the power circuit is energized to operate the washing machine.

In the washing machine, the lid switch bypass is done similarly. It can be a LED sensor or a push button type of switch. It usually has 3 contacts. Namely, Normally Closed contact, Normally Open contact, and Common contact. When we connect the Common contact and normally open contact with a small looping wire, the washing machine lid switch bypass is completed. It has to be done only for testing purpose or in case you are not able to replace the faulty lid switch. With the washing machine lid switch, it ensures the door cover is closed for your safety while operating the washing machine.
