Question about Dryers
This problem is most commonly due to the motor. The motor has an internal switch called a centrifugal switch that senses when the motor is up to speed.
The second cause could be the start relay (this is present on some but not all models), this is part of the start button you push and is less expensive than the motor, it can be checked with an ohm meter to determine which component is faulty.
If you can send me your model number I can pull up the wiring diagram to determine which type of start component is on your Whirlpool. The model number can be found on the tag just inside the door
