are you sure the lid switch is good?  I carry one with the latch so I can plug it in the board to test it.

  If the switch was bad, the washer would not fill with water.

OK, Found a sock in the pump and now it is running fine.. I guess the stopped up pump shuts down the entire system. Thanks for the other ideas!!!

I would've jumped in but I've only worked on three VMW's so far.  I'm starting to think they must be a really well built machines.  ;D  The third one had a sock in the pump. It didn't shut down the whole machine though.
