The wires do not come off the switch. A new lid switch comes complete with new wires.

He tried to see if the washer would spin by rigging it and it did.

Awesome, he found the problem...  O0

He found a number on the lid switch which is 8949237 in case that is useful.

I researched the number and it does not seem to be a good part number, maybe he or you could double check the number.

He also said he is puzzled because when he looks at the lid switch it seems like there is no way to disconnect the wires....

The wire harness is part of the lid switch. The new lid switch will come with the wire harness attached to it just like the old lid switch. The first video I posted above shows you how to replace the switch.

I will look for the serial/model number when i get home....

Sounds good, let us know what you find.
