Bad MCU's are usually visibly bad.  Open it up, remove board and will often see a burnt spot.  

 

Will usually smell bad, too-- like burnt electronics.

It's common for a bad MCU to give the codes you describe. I've had 3 in the last month just like this. I see a lot of MCU's that don't show any external signs of being bad, and a lot that are cooked.

I don't understand it either and I don't think the engineers at Whirlpool do as well. I concur with Nick, this is a common symptom of a bad mcu. Error codes can be misleading.
