The lock cylinder has failed and needs to be replaced. You need to check and see if it is available from the aftermarket or it may have to come from a dealer.

Do you have any repair experience?

I suggest letting a shop do it that has the proper tools and experience.

If it is the starter motor that is whirring, you have a bad starter, not an ignition key problem.
