Do you see two tan wires on the switch?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There are two wires that go to a micro sw and two that go to lid lock bimetal sw
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 10 months ago

The tan with black stripe wires can be wired together. That will bypass the switch and allow it to spin no matter the lid position. Of course, this is a safety issue (don't reach in the tub while machine is on), so I cannot recommend you do that.
