hello , do you have a model number ? is this a top loader? ,by sensor do you mean the plastic lid strike ?
if you lift up the lid ,look at the back center its usually there
nothing came up ,is there any digits missing?
the plastic lid strike activates the lid switch ,that can be repaired ,if its the part on the lid its two screws to change ..open the lid and push a screwdriver into that slot and see if it drains and spins to activate that switcg ..if it works you just need that lid strike
sure anything that will fit in that slot
see if the tub spins and the water drains ..if it does then you need that lid strike , have the timer in the spin cycle though
ok that is the lid switch , that need replacing the strike is on the lid itself you need the lid switch this part below
