This popped into my head somewhere over the night, or as I woke up; you said you had some power before you replaced the switch on the door, now you have nothing; maybe the "new" switch is junk?? Wouldn't be the first time I have seen a new piece that was just as good as what you are trying to replace. Food for thought anyway. And the transformer will be very close to where the power cord enters the unit.

I thought about the new switch potentially being bad but being that I had to pay $54 and 6 days waiting for it, I'm trying to believe that it can't be the case....LOL

Unless I am testing it incorrectly I have no voltage going to it.

Chase it back....a relay or power source, should be next in line.

I agree. If I remember correctly, I think I had 1 (one) volt hitting the switch.

1 would be a digital logic command. But i don't think that is so, probably just stray voltage.

What, by following the lines from the switch ( Btw is it a red and black 2 wire switch or 3 red/black white and green ), you should find the next junction at a fuse , power source, relay or transformer.

Transformers tend to look like a big coils wrapped in paper or gell.

I recently moved into a 10 year old house but the appliance instructions etc. were not left behind by the previous owner.

With the model numbers in hand and a little time on the Google machine, I was able to find instructions, wiring diagrams, exploded views, etc. for all the appliances.
