Maytag washer ( no run ):
Problems with this switch....it has a built in fuse inside the lid switch, the tab and plunger arm where a hair too short and some would not activate with the lid closed, the new switch comes with a new plunger....use it whenever you replace the lid switch! If the main contact inside the lid switch sticks the fuse inside will blow and the washer will go dead.
This "new" style switch is bit confusing to test, this here might help you out.
How a good switch ohms with an ohm meter:
Lid open/at rest, continuity between Machine and Line, continuity between motor and neutral.
Lid closed/activated, continuity between machine, motor and line together and nothing to neutral.
