Remove the top cover of the machine. Check to see if the three tubes going into the dispenser drawer hv not come loose. Tighten well.

SOURCE: Clogged screen on water intake.
it should just come out with a nice firm, but gentle pull. problem is u need to be careful because if its that clogged up, its probably weak and might break. U can always just buy new ones at sears, or home depot.

I would pull the 120VAC power cord to the washer for 10 seconds then power back up.
See if you can get into service mode. To enter Service Mode press and hold he Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”. If you can’t get into Service Mode I feel you have a Control Board issue/failure.
If you can get into Service Mode then go to page 15 of the SM and we want to try a Quick Service Cycle test. Follow the instructions to enter the Quick Service Cycle test and let us know the results. If the test will run it will take about 10 minutes.

Most likely a bad machine control,can also possibly be a motor per whirlpool but I have never had to change a motor,changed a lot of machine controls.

You can check the lid switches (they are paired) the following way:
1) take off the front and top washer housing panels.
2) look for the wire bundle coming off the lid switch and find the plastic pull apart connector.
3) undo the connector.
4) take an Ohm meter and check the resistance when the lid is closed: a) orange and black wires should complete a circuit, orange and pink should also complete a cicruit, all other pairs shold be "open".
5) check the resistance when the lid is open: orange and white should make a circuit, but no other pairs.
6) replace the defective switch, or replace the complete unit.
7) check the 250V 1A fuse in the left front, replace it if it has blown.

SENSING Page 5
When the START/PAUSE/Unlock Lid is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer will use short, slow spins to estimate the load size. These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load and you may hear the hum of these spins. If the sensing light is on, then washer is working properly. You will hear the motor turn the basket in short pulses to thoroughly wet the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.
NOTE: Avoid opening the lid during sensing. The sensing process will start over when the washer is restarted. The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.
If there's no water, then Page 13
Washer won't run or fill, washer stops working, or wash light remains on (indicating that the washer was unable to fill appropriately)
Check for proper water supply.
Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing to
Both hot and cold water faucets must be turned on.
Check that inlet valve screens have not become clogged.
Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.
Or you have an inlet valve that is not working
