Maytag clothes washer model#LAT2600AAE was full w/water & starting

Resolved Question:

Maytag clothes washer model#LAT2600AAE was full w/water & starting the 1st cycle. The lid was opening to put 1 pant in the load. The lid was not pushed all the way back & drop very hard on the machine closing it. Since then the washer will not start, no sound, nothing.
I took clothes out, empty water & machine will not start.
Removed back behind the swithes but everything look fine no burned out switches. Removed
plate near drum but could not see any belt(s).
Should I get a meter to check wires or get a repair man?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

okay when the lid slammed down you broke the lid switch. This is very common on these machines they are plastic and break easy . You need to replace the lid switch at this point.
