Question about Whirlpool 4.0 Cu. Ft. Plus Washer
This is commonly the symptom of a lid switch malfunction. If this is a Whirlpool manufacured top loader, the following link explains how to access and/or replace the switch:
Before assuming you have any defective parts, ensure the switch is not loose. They can come become loose and not make contact. If you have a model that uses a lid strike, make sure the lid strike on the washer lid is not broken off. This will also give you the same symptoms.
If replacement parts are required, you can purchase on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal.
If you have questions, or if my diagnosis is incorrect, please post back and let me know, so that I may assist you better.
NOTE: Please provide an accurate brand name and model number if further assistance is required. My assessment was based on the symptoms you provided, the picture you listed this under and the most common fail part based on my experience.
