These are usually symptoms of a failed lid switch. The following link explains how to replace the lid switch step-by-step:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

Open and close the lid and listen for a distinctive "clicking" noise. The lid switch should activate as the lid closes. If you do not hear the switch, chances are the switch has come loose, the lid strike (small plastoic piece on the washer lid on some models) has broken off, or the switch itself is broken. Please post back with your model number and I can confirm how your washer is configured. I hope this helps you.

PS This repair should only cost you about $25 to $35 if you decide to do it yourself. Also, you do not have to drain the wash tub to repair the switch. Once the problem is corrected, the tub will drain on its own. This will save you the effort of having to bail water out of the tub.

My whirlpool steam duet washer won't pour water in the wash cycle


There is no output from the control panel to switch on the inlet valve, so check the inlet valve at this time of the cycle. Also check the water level pressure sensor switch.
Choose another program to confirm if not the controller seems to be suspect.

Washer will not finish its rinse or spin cycle


Check that water can drain out of the machine
1/ Check that the filter is not blocked
2/ Check drain motor is working (ie. not blocked with coins or hairpins etc)
3/ Check that pipe from tub to filter is not blocked (I had a sock blocking mine)
4/ If there is water in the filter and the drain motor runs then check that waste water hose is not blocked.

Whirlpool Washer - Imperial Series Quiet Wash 2


your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining
