My name is DeDe,
 I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Energy Star HE H2Low Wash System model# WTW5500XW0 SERIAL#CO5331031. The Washer will turn on but it will not lock, which causes it not to start the wash cycle. I have unplugged the washer and have even tried to hold down the start button to unlock it. The door will not lock and this causes the washer not to function properly.
ANY SOLUTIONS THAT AREN'T AS COSTLY

Had the same problem with same exact machine. I wound up replacing the lid switch and it did not correct the problem, sorry to say it was the Control Board that was the issue. Hope it is the Lid switch much less expensive fix.
