Question and Answers

Q:

Need information on Bypass lid Switch on Top Load Kenmore Washer Model# 11026904691, Washer wont drain nor spin. Kenmore Model # 11026904691

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you’re having with the washer not draining or spinning. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

The lid may be bypassed for troubleshooting purposes only, and it should not be left intact after troubleshooting is complete. Typically for this symptom, the lid switch would be at fault, but as you’ve mentioned, there is a possibility it could be a pump issue, and the weight of the water is not allowing the basket to spin. 

To bypass the switch, insert a jumper wire into the lid-switch connector that attaches to the control panel. The connector has two wires attached to it, one violet and one gray (colors may vary by model). Bridge these two wires by inserting the bare ends of a jumper wire into the connector. You can now operate the washer through a full cycle if the lid switch is at fault.

There are some great YouTube videos online that will provide a visual reference on how to bypass the lid switch. For convenience, I have provided a blue link below that you may click on to view some of the videos before tackling the task.
