The Ground Switches are normally Open when Panels are in place and closed when panels are removed. This is opposite of what one would normally assume.
If it is a Model that has a Heater; the ground on Heater is in series with the ground switches so if there is a Heater present check the ground on Heater also. Check the ground on the Drive motor and Tub Hub ground.
Remember to check the resistor on the Motor Control Board it will either read Open or Closed.
At this point if you have not found the issue, please resubmit question with details of checks you have made.
