Yes it may be in the MCU but I had one do this and it was in the CCU. Has it ever thrown a Fdl ??? Door lock code?? Thats another sign its in the CCU

Is this a model 110.47512601 HE2 Plus? If it is, I do not see an F12 error code listed. I have a tech sheet for an HE2 Plus, but I only see an F21 error code.
There is a tech sheet inside your washer that explains all the error codes. You will have to remove the lower panel under the door to access it. Its usually mounted to the inside of the lower panel on along the interior walls of the cabinet. There will be instructions on how to enter diagnostics mode and a full list of error codes, followed by procedures to follow on how to correct. If you require further assistance in determining the source of the error, please let me know.
PS Don't tell Sears I told you where they keep their "secret" error code list. Don't you find that irritating? The repairman would have come to your home, opened the washer, and read the tech sheet right in front of you - then charged you for it. Good luck.

SOURCE: F 06 whirlpool duet washer
I had a similar problem.
The duet would always return an F06 error on the spin cycle(after about 1 min after doing the drain cycle). the motor would turn during the drain cycle for about 1 second and the other cycles acted somewhat normal.
Heres the solution:
The MCU uses the tachometer of the motor(rpm sensor) during the spin cycle only. It returns F06 because it can't read the rpm's. (for some reason it doesn't use it during normal cycles)
What I found out was that a resistor, believe it or not was bad. A 0.01 cent part to fix a 1000$ machine. (I wonder how much money has been wasted on this problem ;/)
The resistor is the first resistor that enters the mcu board on the tachometer. (I put the mcu back up before I could take a picture)
To find it, trace the circuit from the back side of the board where the tachometer wires come in at(its the 2 lower ones out of the 5 black + green(ground)). One of them will lead to a via(thing that goes to other side of board) which leads to a resistor labeled 471(470 ohms). On mine it looked slightly charred at the top almost like dirt and I didn't think about it but I finally put an ohm meter across it and it read open(should have read something).
After replacing it everything seems to have been working fine. What happened was that the tachometer wasn't being able to be read and hence the spin cycle wasn't able to start.
Replacing the MCU board would have solved it too but at a cost of several hundred(a total rip off specially for a 1 min fix if you have that problem).
Took me several hours to fix it so hopefully this will same a few others time. You can repay me by not buying from whirlpool!

SOURCE: mcu and ccu
MCU = Motor Control Unit. A control board that is located in the rear of the washer at the bottom adjacent to the drive motor. Remove the back panel for access.
CCU = Central Control Unit. A control board that is located directly behind the wash tub. This is the main "brain" of the washer. You can access by removing the washer top panel.
