You said you replaced the motor on this unit did you not? and no the RPS sensor cannot be jumped and to be honest I don't know why? I have tried to jump it and it won't work.
I have only every had 2 bad RPS sensors ever and a pain in the butt to fix because you have to replace the so called Transmission to do it. 99% no idiot light is a bad motor.
When these motors are shipped they go through HELL, I have had other brands bad out of the box, I would try a new motor also, another fact if you jump the lid switch it will only work one time until the circuit is broken to so it to know that the lid had been opened from the last cycle.
I don't think so, Live and learn, hope it fixes it for you.
