My friend also bypassed the lid switch by jumping it. Is it okay for this to stay like this, because i can not afford to keep buying lid switches. I do not have any small children and will it burn anything up in the control panel?

I would check the current draw of the machine in operation either using a Kill A Watt monitor or have a tech come out and check it with an amprobe. Either there is excessive current that the switch cannot handle or there is a problem with the lid strike mechanism and it's damaging the switch.

Default Lid switch not working

It is the same striker that was used for the original lid switch, so I do not think it is the striker, because if that were the case then the striker would have damaged the original lid switch. It has been jumped and working fine, and I do not have small children so I do not have to worry about safety. A lid switch is just for safety. when lid is lifted agitation stops. I can not afford to call a tech to come out spent too much on the lid switch, 44.00 and paid my friend 60.00 bucks to install it and he has been fooling with this thing for days now. I didn't have a problem like this with the original one.

My friend said it may be that the company has gotten a bad shipment of switches. I am not a tech so I do not know what the problem can be. I am so over it! lol! All I know now is that I am able to do laundry by jumping it.

So why did you replace the original switch? If the washer seems to be working fine with the switch jumped out, your probably ok. As you say, the switch is a personal safety device, it is not there for overcurrent protection.

I replaced the original lid switch because it went out the part the the striker hits broke off. I just don't understand why the 2 new ones quit working after 10 minutes or so....there is no indication of any burnt areas on the new ones.

Yes, I am a tech. I'd say there is a problem with the striker putting too much pressure on the switch. The lid or top panel may be bent or out of alignment.
