I know how important it is to have the wiring installed properly on the washer to keep it running strong. I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your washer so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. The expert has access to most wiring diagrams and he or she will be happy to help within 24 to 48 hours. I am adding a link below to help you locate the model number, I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

According to the model number you provided, the lid switch is activated by the right hand lid hinge. The console will need to be placed in the service position to access the lid switch. I added the wiring diagram of your model washer in the image below. The gray (GY) wire connects the lid switch to the quick disconnect plug on the main top under the console. The gray wire is shown just the left of the motor in the wiring diagram. The gray wire connects the neutral supply to the motor. I have never heard or seen any of the lid switch wires to just pull off of come off by themselves. Some one may have jumped the lid switch out leaving the gray wire hanging loose.

I added a video that will help you access the lid switch. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before placing the console in the service position. I was able to find a video of your specific model using this specific lid switch.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Mark: The gray wire will connect to male terminal of the thermal over load. Mark I added an image and circled the terminal on the motor overload. Connect the gray wire here.
