SOURCE: microwave power level
The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

With the symptoms you mention, I would suspect:
- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat food.
My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help

Replacing the Magnetron will fix this heating issue you are having with this microwave. The Magnetron is the device that is responsible for the heating action.
