Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Check the lid switch. There should be a small pin on the lid that will push the lid switch down when it is closed. There are two wires going to the lid switch, jump these two wires together and if it works then replace the switch.
Unplug the washer before doing any work.

Tips for a great answer:
Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the
noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be
checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs,
the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in
position. Tightening of the mounting is
also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on
the moving parts cane solve most issues.
