Hmm mine works fine.
Is the chain tight enough?

Hello, I don't have got such a hub. My general thought is that there should be a spring which prevents the clutch disk from rotating with the driver while engaging. If this spring is not strong enough anymore, you could not engage to pedal forward anymore.
Could you try to increase the tension of the spring?
Or is it somehow engaging but not fully connecting to the hub shell? In this case I could imagine that the pawls are worn. I remember a video from Dub about replacing these in a FEC hub (I still wonder why this only uses two pawly so the wear should be much higher), so maybe this also happened to your WTP hub?
