Yes, I see and repair this controller problem on a regular basis. The total cost would be $54.95. See details, instructions, and forms at my site.

on VIP27 (crisp series), hold only Cancel/Stop for about 3-5 seconds.

Usually they are T-15 Torx security screws. (If not T-15, then T-20)

On this microwave, you just need to enter the correct cooking time and power level. This will clear the previous time and power level that you entered. (This works since you need to use the Options button to do multi-stage cooking.)

The manual for the Whirlpool WMH53521HZ is available on the product site: https://www.whirlpool.com/kitchen/cooking/microwaves/over-the-range/p.2.1-cu.-ft.-over-the-range-microwave-with-steam-cooking.wmh53521hz.html . Scroll down to the Manuals & Guides section or use the link and expand the section. The current link to the manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/201705/UserGuide-W11047549-RevA.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I am not sure - if there are no small plastic plugs or pieces of trim hiding the retaining screws (most sensible assumption) the door interior will need dismantling to access the screw heads.

A microwave door is often made up of several layers to provide light weight with rigidity and provide adequate screening against microwave escape and if dismantling is possible (not always) it really should be entrusted to a professional or at least applying the utmost attention to detail.

door switch is misadjusted. You may have gotten the one I sent back.

My guess is the bulb burned out. You can probably find the owner's manual online to see if there are replacement instructions.
