Hi
Seems like the door switch is failing, or failed.
wpecially if a front loader, the door has to be closed, and register on the circuit as closed before the machine will start.
they are cheap and easy to replace, most of the time, but cant give instructions for an unknown whirlpool other than
take front panel off
replace door switch
replace front panel

Most wasing machine problems are with door contact and sometimes drain hose. If door contact try to push a screw driver to push the door contact or lock a few times.. check drain hose position with your installation manual. Since u have used it for some time prob it is the first problem..

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

Whirlpool Washing Machine Quitting during rinse cycle


I would say that based on your problem description that the lid /door switch has a loose or faulty contact .. If you open and close it a few times..it starts to spin and yet when you open it.. it doesn't always stop the spinning.. It is either the switch or the actuator that bumps that switch.. That is where I would begin diagnosing the problem... Hope that helps..

It looks like the door switch was not making because the door is defective. Also the switch may just be bad.
