The wax motor should have a resistance of 1200-1900 ohms. If it reads around 800-900ohms it will take out control board again even if it still works.
(I just recently worked on one of these Neptune washers, actually first one I every worked on and found the r11 resistor on machine control board burnt - this is the door lock cicuit. I ohmed the wax motor and got a reading of 877ohms which at the time I didn't know what it should be so I plugged the wax motor in with a test cord and it let out a loud pop and spark, which then I say this is not good and did some research).

You may have more damage or some other problems like maybe a bad motor control board also. The one I worked on did everything but high speed spin so I was able to press the door lock switch and test all functions. The fact that you machine won't do anything except turn on the "ON" light I suspect you may have a bad motor control board also.
