Just wondering why the lid switch for sure?

That is the exact symptom that occurs when the lid switch is bad. I see this several times per week on this model and it is always the lid switch.

Note: the costs was part of my original question...thanks

When I do this job, I charge $90 for labor and $40 for the part - totaling $130. Technicians charge different prices. I would contact several companies and just ask them how much it would cost to replace the lid switch. Ask them to make sure they put an OEM part in the machine - in other words, a genuine Whirlpool part. The aftermarket parts often don't last much longer than 6 months.
