I washed a large load in our Whirlpood Duet Washing Machine and it stopped with a flashing F28 code. I unplugged it for 5 minutes and it still will not run a cycle without stopping with a flashing F28...

The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit (8540135)
Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28

If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

You can download the online repair manual in the below link$FILE/8178558.pdf

On page# 4-20 it shows how to access your MCU.
