Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
Don't know this particular model, but it sounds like you are just pressing the time buttons for cooking and not actually setting the time clock which is what it's asking for. Are you following the instructions for setting time as detailed in your instruction book?

I would first suspect a bad door switch or door switch mount.
If you follow up with your full model number, I can possibly give more precise advice.
