Have another scenario for my Whirlpool Duet Sport washer. 
Here is the exact process of what I have done, so far:
Close the door
plug it in
dial to ‘drain/spin’
power on
no spin selected.
Hit prewash 4x in less than 5 seconds
Reads 2 min and NO codes.  Start over and get same results (even when dialed to ‘clean washer’).

CANCEL and make sure Power is off

Open and close door
dial on ‘drain/spin’
power on & ‘no-spin’ selected
Indicator lights on are: Add garment, 2 minutes, ‘drain/spin’, ‘no spin’, ‘door locked’. 

Hit ‘pause/cancel’ 1x, all lights are still on with ‘2’ blinking. 

Hit ‘pause/cancel’ again and only lights on are ‘door locked’ and  ‘2’ with ‘add garment’ blinking. 

Push power button, no change or beep, push extra rinse, no change or beep, push pre wash, no change or beep, push start, no change or beep, push pause/cancel, no change or beep. 

It is now frozen (not cold) and will not respond to anything. 

At this point I have to unplug and  manually unlock to open door. 

    I replaced the ccu (main control board)  with a new one from Repair clinic with absolutely no change.  I have made sure that I depressed the button on the bottom left of the kick plate.. I have also disconnected M13 in the ccu, to make sure about communication between mcu and ccu (didn't make a difference).
    I am leaning towards either a new door switch or a mcu,  but really need some HELP!

Closest ‘authorized repair’ place wants $140-150 for just a service call! with no return on any installed parts.
Any ideas?? HEELLLLLPPPPP!!!

Try entering diagnostic mode for fault code recall.  With unit off, select any key except cancel and press/hold 4 seconds-release 4 seconds-press/hold 4 seconds-release 4 seconds-press/hold 4 seconds and release.  All leds should come on followed by fault codes.  Door lock error should show as F22.

it doesn't appear to make a difference which button I hit (as I have tried them all) for that mode of diagnostics.. and when the leds came on and it read 88, then the leds went out and the door locked and the only other led on was rinse/spin and it was blinking.

It is worth while to pull the mcu out and inspect it for obvious burnt marks, remove it from it plastic housing and check the back side. A faulty mcu will lock up the machine

Thank you to all who contributed to my problem.  The culprit turned out to be the MCU, which a few of you suggested, which totally controls everything else.  Different sources of info(including from an 'authorized repair' place) kept saying it was the ECU, which made a certain amount of sense due to the fact that I was clueless on this type of washer.  NOW I know a few things that just may help in the future.  Again, thanks to all.
