Then you should understand how to use a volt/ohm meter.

Check the compressor as I suggested with a meter. If the compressor checks ok then replace the start relay.

I looked up your model number and the start relay is part # 8201786.

WHIRLPOOL 8201786 Compressor Starting Device Kit, AP3885081

Are you currently going to school someplace?

Refrigerators are not any hard to repair then any other appliance.
The most difficult part of repairing refrigerators would be sealed system work, but most of the time there is nothing wrong with the sealed system

Most of the time you will be replacing start relays, fans, defrost timers, control boards and cold controls or thermostats.

Easy money... ;)

i did the washer dryer training in michigan then we moved here to nc last year and havent found a school here that offers it. because when i first got inot it it wasnt for a job, odd i know but got tired of mine breaking down so i wanted to fix them myself, but when we moved here the job i transfered with was um not to desireable and i hated it so i started my biz here. so basically for the last 10 years i have been fixing mine and friends and families washers and dryers until last year when i opened my biz. looking to expand soon but of course finding a school here hasnt been easy....thank for the info though after this mishap i see its not as hard as i thought..
