How do I diagnose an F6 error code failure on my Whirlpool Duet washer model GHW9400PW1?

I have a Whirlpool Duet washer model GHW9400PW1. It will run for about 5 minutes in a rinse and spin cycle. It then goes to spin and an F6 code appears. I checked all connections and found them to be good. I performed a continuity check at the motor and found pins 1&2, 2&3, and 1&3 to all have an infinite resistance instead of a 6 ohm reading. Six ohms is stated to be normal while an infinity reading is abnormal. Is the motor bad or is the MCU bad? What else can be checked to determine which component is defective without purchasing both parts and tying the trial and error method?
