This is a door lock failure or at least the CCU board thinks so. I would perform the tests mentioned in the Tech Sheet just inside the lower panel to see which it is. Also check for loose wires between the door lock and the CCU in the top rear of the cabinet. This can be easily done by removing the top panel. (3 screws at rear, it slides back)

All you should need is the new lock and about 15 minutes time. The lock can be easily replaced by removing the band around the outer door seal. Use a small blade screwdriver to pull out one end of the retaining spring located at the bottom of the seal rim. Work the band off and peel the right side of the seal away from the door flange, exposing the door lock to the right just inside the cabinet. The lock has 3 screws on the front and 3 wire connectors to remove and you're done.

When you go to install the band around the door seal, start by applying a dab of Dawn or liquid soap to the right edge of the rubber gasket from about 2:00 to 6:00 position. Start the band with the spring at the bottom and work it around in a clockwise direction until it slides onto the entire rim uniformly.

Some of the info after this response is missing. I need to know the CCU part #. The wiring was intact.

All front loaders develops smells over time, mainly due to washing habits (cold water, softener, etc) that contribute to the smells. Fortunately, Whirlpool and Maytag got together and came up with the following product line:
