Timer advances but nothing happens after fill.  Replaced defective lid switch with no change in symptoms.  Looking for ideas.  Whirlpool Model LSQ9564MQ0

Check to make sure the hinge piece is engaging the switch properly.

It is.  I checked the functionality of the lid switch with a multimeter

  Need to see photo of wiring diagram and timer chart. Since the timer is advancing, it's not likely the lid switch. Did you let it advance through the whole cycle? And nothing works, no drain or spin?

  Thanks AJ. This is one of those models in which the timer will function if lid switch is open. Try jumping out the lid switch. Continuity checks are not always definitive since you are only using the low voltage and current of the multimeter vice the full 120vac and current draw of the motor.

I've experienced faulty lid switch plug connectors. What I've noticed is one of the pins inside the connector slightly pulled out or shorter than the rest.

DId a continuity check on the backside of the connector the lid switch plugs into.  Checks out ok.

Is not the the drain pump functionality independent of the drive motor agitate and spin functions?  Seems odd to me that the timer goes through the cycle beginning to end but nothing else happens.  Fiils but does not agitate, spin or drain.  Should I try to measure the voltage at the motor and/or pump durng these cycles?

The drain pump is directly driven by the drive motor. Anytime the motor is running the pump is being turned.

  Turn washer on so that timer is running, lid closed. Unplug washer and check continuity (zero ohms) from power cord neutral (large blade) to the wht/blk wire on the motor connector. If no good, check to gray wire. Also check from power cord hot (small blade) to motor orange and blue. You should have continuity to one or the other depending on where you are in the cycle. If the motor switch is good, you should have it to both. If no good, either timer is faulty or there is a wiring issue (broken wire, burnt/corroded connection...etc.).

The white wire on the motor on the motor haness connector was detatched.  Made the mistake of just touching the wire to the contact with power on and experiencing some major arcing.  Powered down and soldered the wire to the slide off contact lug spade. Lo and behold the washer is now running.  Where can I get a replacement lug spade contact for the motor assembly as I am not sure how long the solder job will hold.  Looks like the wire broke as a result of arcing or heat damage in the first place.

Doesn't quite look like that.  It is brass/gold in color and attaches to a male spade on the black harness assembly

Ok, what I posted is the female connector that goes on the wire harness.
Never replaced the part that is on the motor assembly. As far as I know it's not a part that is commonly available, if I'm thinking of the right part this time.
