Question about Whirlpool WTW5100SQ
Hi, It could be the lid switch. Check and see that it didn't break. (Sometimes the lid hinge will losen up and not activate the switch.It is locate under the control panel. FIRST unplug the washer!! To remove the control panel, you need to locate the two phillips head screws at the rear of the panel n each end. Remove those screw and the consel will raise up and hinge is place. The lid switch is to the left side and is mounted to the top of the cabinet. It is a quick connect switch. You need to either check continuity on the switch (Should be closed when the switch is engadged). You could also use a jumper wire plugged into the connection for the switch =, plug the dryer in and see if it starts. I know I have given you a lot of info. Please let me know if i can help you further or clarify anything I have told you.

There is a screen on the hoses at the back of the machine, it may be clogged and needs to be cleaned out
