Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Sounds like the switch telling the machine that the lid is open is either broken or loose. The safety feature of the lid switch will allow the water to fill, but will not allow the motor to start (as it should) if the lid is open.If you are handy with things electrical, simply bridge the switch out.

The most likely failure is the water level pressure switch or a failed lid switch. If the washer will drain and spin then it's not a failed lid switch. If it will not drain and spin the likely failure is the lid switch.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has 3 wires attached to it, V (violet), P (Pink) and a T (tan) wire. When the tub is empty of water, contact V&P are closed to allow the tub to fill with water. Once the water level reaches the desired setting, contact V&P opens and then contact V&T closes to start the motor agitating. So, with this said if you were to unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level pressure switch and test to see if terminals V&T is closing by using an ohm meter would indicate if the contact is closed or not.
