Never a problem before. Filled with water then stopped dead. Did all the troubleshooting. Nothing. Model is LSR8433KQ. Suggestions?

What is "all the troubleshooting" ? check for proper voltage at outlet, try starting various cycles see if it starts anywhere.

Thanks for the reply. Troubleshooting included the list of items in the owners manual and Whirlpool website. Also tried at all the cycles. The outlet supports the paired dryer.

... LSR8433KQ

sounds like a bad Lid Switch
but depending on the missing digit at the end of your model number,
it may be one of these

If the switch is the hidden style like in the second picture the problem might just be loose lid hinge screws.
