F25 = DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR
mostly likely need to replace speed control board

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down.
If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 Minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 ohms.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations

Kenmore elite he3t quietpak 4----F25 ERROR CODE...WHAT NOW??


The F25 error code is a motor tachometer error. To determine the problem you will have to remove the top cover and the front access panel. On some models, the rear panel will have to be taken off for easier access to the motor control. Now with the washer-unplugged remove the each plug one at a time and make sure the pins in the connector are not bent then re-seat them on the board. Now retest the washer. If the washer still fails, you will need a meter to ohm the motor.

Washing machine lint trap


There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

My he5t is giving me f25 code. i have pressed stop and tried to drain but i get f25 again. do i need a new belt?


Here is the info on "F25":
f25_code.jpg?t=1177554999
When you open the top of the washer, look at the black rubber hose leading up to the pressure switch. If the hose is kinked, it will fool the pressure switch into thinking the washer is either full of water or it did not see a water level change after the water valves have been on for a period of time. These failures generate the F20 / F25 codes.
To Clear the F25 Fault. Disconnect & Connect the "Water Level Presure" switch plug, a couple of times, Give it a couple of light "Taps" Reconnect again, and see if that works, it should.

Error code f17


Sears are a department store not a manufacturer, they contract other manufacturers to build the appliances for them and these are then sold under the Sears/ Kenmore brand.
To find who made your appliance, check the first three digits of your model number against the list below and this will give you the manufacturer of your appliance.

There is a site to help identify you washers "real" maker
The Link is here to cross reference it.then look up f17 and f25 on that make and model for better results
http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/applianceshvac/help-center/fault-codes/fault-codes-washer.html

the Sears/Kenmore part is almost in the middle of the page. Then keep me posted by adding comments if you have any other questions
I hope this helps you out

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.
