The way I test these is with an old control off of an older machine as seen in the bottom photo.  If the motor won't go and you know the lid switch is fine you may want to check the capacitor. The rating on them is in the second photo:

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
