Above is your service and repair manual. I would think your main controller board has faulted. Most likely it has been spiked or a power surge has affected it. This Board will need to be replaced. All parts are in the service manual, parts numbers too. Now please use the service and repair manual, and perform the troubleshooting steps to isolate this issue and to be sure of our main board diagnosis.
However if you do not wish to DIY, then please contact your local whirlpool service agent and ask for a service call, then ask them for a "Quote" for the repair, before allowing repair work to commence, this way you can make an informed decision as to what to do.

Whirlpool awm 5100

Check voltage to motor at the time of the start cycle if water has filled, absence of voltage shows that the program controller is faulty, If there is power, then the motor is faulty, if the motor is humming or getting heated then there is friction on the drive, remove and clean the drive shaft.

I need a short program for washing and i lost the manual. i don t know how to program it

I have an AWM 5100 and the programs are printed on the outside of the detergent drawer, 1,2,3 prewash cotton, synthetic, delicates, 4 full wash,5 short wash cotton etc..this is not on your machine? Check the Whirlpool site, if no luck, reply here and I will see if I can help more..perhaps I can scan and email to you? but might not be same control options.. my machine also has a rapid wash button, which speeds any cycle.
Good luck
