First of all, the drain defective. Rather than making the washer defective also, just turn off the machine at the control when it begins to flood over. Better yet, have the drainrootered out. It must support 17 gal/minute. Not just a good idea, it's the law.

Thanks John
I've been extremely busy running service calls lately, and have not had time to devote to all the help forums that I frequented before. Generally, I will respond to any of my posts that someone has commented on, such as the one above.
I am currently in NY attending a business conference, and it is warmer here than inTexas when I left.

I know how to fix the drain, but for now I want to disable the lid lock... which two wires?

You cannot disable the lock relay, as it also completes a circuit to Neutral for the pump motor. Go paste your model number into the lookup on the left and see the wiring diagram. You will see terminals 2,3 & 4 at the lid switch/lock mechanism.

Duct tape will restrain the lock from locking, or you can cut the end off of the latch hook so that it cannot lock

I took the latch off the door, and hung a fishing weight on bottom of the latch so it thinks the door is always closed! :D....

If I use ductape... will the washer stop when I actually do open the door, or will it still be in operation?

As long as you just hold the locking hook with the tape, the internal switch should still funtion off and on. Careful, though...the last person who bypassed this particular switch caused the solenoid to melt thruand short out...took out the drive motor
