It gives a f-11 code but diagnostic always works fine
We bought this machine in 2004 and started replacing parts from the get go. First the drum leaked so fixed that then had to much soap figured that out ,now for the last two years it flashes F-11 code or door unlocked , unplugging and running the diagnostic check usually seems to be a short term fix, but lately I noticed the drain pump is really noisy, and today the door would not unlock for my daughter. Plus the bonus crappy smell this thing gets is a giant step backwards! The weird thing is every time we run the diagnostic it checks out fine. I got spoiled from our last washing machine it lasted fifteen years and still running washing rags at work, I could of bought five of those machines for this thing. help

Please check your model number. Whirlpool has no models that start with WFC7500V0. There is a WFC7500VW1 front load washer. The F25 error indicates a problem with the drum motor tachometer. (The motor rotation speed reported to the main control isn't appropriate for the cycle.) This can happen if the shipping bolts aren't removed.
If the washer is ready to be used, then you need to unplug the washer before continuing the diagnostics. Remove any clothes from the tub first. Check that the wires between the motor control unit and the central control board are seated properly. Make sure that none of the wires in the wiring harness are broken or have corrosion at the connectors. Replace the wiring harness if it is damaged. If the wires are good, plug the washer back in. Check the resistance at the tachometer and motor. Replace any failed part. Check if the drum spins properly when you spin it by hand and when the motor is powered. If the motor is spinning at the appropriate speed, replace the motor control unit. If the drum won't spin easily when you push it by hand, replace the bearings.
Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.
SOUNDS LIKE THE CLUTCH ASSEMBLY OR MAYBE BEARINGS ... A GOOD APPLIANCE REPAIR COMPANY USUALLY OFFERS A "FLAT-RATE" DIAGNOSTIC CHARGE THAT VERIES FROM 30-50 DOLLARS. LABOR AND PARTS ARE ALWAYS EXTRA.
MOST ALL WASHER MANUFACTURERS HAVE "SPECIALTY" TOOLS TO PREVENT THE HOME-OWNER FROM ADJUSTING THE CLUTCH OR MAKING REPAIRS.
YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WETHER ITS WORTH REPAIRING.
NEVER SIGN ANYTHING. OR LET A REPAIRMAN START WORKING AFTER HIS DIAGNOSTIC CHECK ... UNTIL A TOTAL COIST FOR REPAIR IS REACHED.
