  Remove front panel and check flashing green LED on top right side of motor inverter board which will give any error codes. A steady 1 second on/off flash while in standby indicates no errors. If no errors, check lid switch.

Already checked lid switch at motor plug, lid closed-120v lid open-0v.   No LED light illuminated on motor.  Seems I have continuity from motor plug (RW) (thermal fuse?) to line filter neutral.   How can I test control board?  diagnostic all lights working as should.  Way to test motor to verify bad?

RB to WR should have 120v at all times. O to WR should have 120v with lid closed. RB to hot side of power cord should have continuity. If you have power to the motor, but no blinking light, the motor is bad.
