My washer is not sensing that the lid is closed.

My washer is not sensing that the lid is closed.

I have a GE top load washer model GTW680BSJ5WS. It is not sensing that the lid is closed and therefore will not start. I have replaced the lid lock, unplugged it for an extended period of time, attempted to reset it, and it does not appear that any of the connections are loose. I am completely out of ideas of what is wrong and how to fix it.

before replacing any more parts, at least try to run the Field Service mode and see if it comes up with an error. Here are the instructions for the tests for your washer. It may look a bit complex so read through it a couple of times. If it does give you an error code let us know which one. GE-washer-Service-mode.pdf"

If the lid switch does not work it is most likely the software update module that is needed
