This answer was rated:

I have a Whirlpool H2low mod#WTW4950xw2 and the lid locking mechanism is not locking so the machine does not work. Can I bypass this lock or do I need to get a new part?

Randy 43 :

hello, that lock plugs into the main board so you cant bypass it , the board needs to sense the circuit is closed

Randy 43 :

it is a $45 part ..not too bad
