if you disable it then it will not spin and may not wash eather ,, it has to have the lid switch to operate

I've seen videos on youtube of people using a magnet to make Whirlpool Cabrios think the lid is closed so that it will continue to wash.

 

I was just wondering if that technique works for the Cabrio 6200 model.

 

Do you know anything about that?

 

Thank you.

Sorry I'm just now getting back--my daughter needed the computer last night to finish a school project.

 

Thank you for your answer. I really dislike that lid locking thing, but oh well...
