Probably a bad door switch or mount. The door switch help file is here.
On some models though (you didn't mention yours) the door circuit is very complicated, and may be showing the door error due to a blown fuse or cavity TCO.
Accessing the cavity TCO for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
