All you tube videos are three wire lid switch harnesses​

All the YouTube videos on bypassing​ the lid switch on my Kenmore washer are three wire harnesses​ and mine is a four wire harness and all the videos show that you unplug from the switch itself mine don't so can you not bypass it

Update (04/03/2017)

Bypass # four and #three you said right so I unplug from the control board and that's where I bypass it 4 and 3 which is red and white just want to make sure before I do if you can please let me know ASAP I'll be the last time I ask you a question I appreciate it or do I take the door lid switch itself there but there is no plug in there only plug in is at the control board

@grim69 give us a complete model number. There are different variants of the 110 series and the exact model number from your washer may reveal a better answer for you.

Complete model#11050702011 Kenmore residential washing machine the senser light blinks I hit the start button then the lock lite comes on blinks and blinks and makes a clicking noise and then it does that for about 2 to 3 minutes and then lid lite light goes off it won't lock

Thank everyone I know this might sound stupid but my dad always said asking someone a question is never a bad thing here it goes do pull the plug out of control board and jump there it is the only place that it looks like to jump it and then leaving out of the control board after it's jumped thanks everyone pretty $@$*!& weekend

That might work for as long as you do not remove the "jumper" and for as long as the lock still works. If the lock is defective even jumping may not close it. Best of luck and hopefully your week will get better.

@grim69 according to your model number, this should be the lid switch for your machine.

Should yours look different you want to take some images and post those with your question. For that use this guide. You should also run the diagnostics test to make sure that it truly is a lid switch error. This document Kenmore-1105072011.pdf will show you how to get into diagnostics mode and what the results mean.

By the schematic it looks like placing a jumper (careful there is 120V on that line) between #4 and #3 on the lid switch will bypass it. The blinking of the sensor light sure makes it sounds like you do have a faulty lid switch.

@grim69 , Eddie lynn, The door lock assembly might be defective check and replace if damaged (some of these switch assy start coming apart at the seam joint,see the 3rd link), also check door strike assembly for damage and replace if cracked/damaged. Last link is how to put into diagnostic mode to get error code to help diagnose fault. See links below for more info and how to. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

@oldturkey03 , This volunteers shift is over, Boss said! Any help/advice for Eddie would be appreciated. Have a good night.

@lpfaff1 my Boss said the same thing:-) Have a great and productive week, stay warm and safe.

Looks and sounds like @grim69 has a bad lid switch,. The humming is most likely the switch not engaging.

My question is it's a four wire harness somebody said you can't bypass a four wire harness but if you can where would you jump it at the plug that goes into the control board or actually at the switch take two wires and cross them and put a wire nut in it . and what two color wires would you jump thanks I can't get the part for like a week so whatever I can do just to get it temporarily do some laundry
