SOURCE: THE MODEL # IS WFW8300S WHIRLPOOL DUET SPORTS WASHING MACHINE

a power glitch can cause this promblem first push pause cancel twice to clear this error code then try the washer on drain spin and listen for the pump to come on if it does then clear the machine by pause cancle twice then try to start again if code resets then the promblem is most likely the ccu or the board but try clearing the error first if that dont work get back with me and we will run diagnostic mode

SOURCE: F 25 Code

F25 is a motor tachometer code. In simple terms, the machine control does not know how fast the motor is turning so it shuts down. The problem could be in the motor, motor controller, the main control, or a wiring harness problem. Since it is new, I expect it is something simple like a connector that is not plugged in properly. I am seeing a lot of this kind of problem lately. They are getting in too big of a hurry at the factories I think.
If you can't wait for service, unplug the machine and remove the lower front cover and check the connections at the motor and motor controller. You can remove the top and check the connections at the main control. Just be sure not to change anything, just make sure all the plugs are pushed in to the connectors properly.
Let me know what you find out.
Mike

SOURCE: F25 error code

Hello twelsh2
Welcome,

You said, you started my washer and after a few minutes I'm getting this F25 code. Water starts to go in but it never starts washing. Any thoughts?

This is what F25 is telling you.

Condition
DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR
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.

Check and Repair
1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power for 5 minutes (Rests the system)
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations

If you can not find the fault , Please call service.
We have service sponsors available in your area here in our web site if you need one!
Let me know what you find!

SOURCE: Fault code F25

Hi,

If you remove three screws along the bottom front the bottom panel comes off.
On the inside, on the right wall, is a plastic bag with a paper labeled "FOR SERVICE TECHNICIAN ONLY".
This has a section titled "FAILURE/ERROR DISPLAY CODES" with all the error codes along with an explanation and recommended procedure. For F25, this is:

DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR

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.

I got this working for many on this site :)

SOURCE: My Whirlpool Duet Washer, model number WFW9400SW01 will not turn on. The button lock is off and does light up indicating power to the front panel/unit. Any ideas?

if you are mechanical and are not afraid of small wires you can try this. I had the exact same problem on my machine. i very slowly diasssembled the machine. not hard to do. removed the top. unscrews from the back and slides to the back to come off. remove the door. unsnap the plastic plate that goes around the door.it is held on by small snap clip that pop off if you use a small flat screw driver to pry it out. remove detergent tray. and screws that attach it to the inner box. now the hard part. remove the face plate. it unsnaps similar to large door plate.very carefully unclip the circuit boards. they are held in by plastic clips around the outside and white plastic clips in the middle. you must gently pry up and release these clips one at a time. a second person is helpful, so are small needle nose pliers. clean both circuit boards very gently with isopropyl alcohol and qtips. mositen the qtips and clean every inch of the boards. be very careful not to bend or crack anything. you must get all the yellowish flux and any other corrosion growing on the board off. there is one more board that must be cleaned. the power supply board. it is mounted on the top right side near where the face plate wire come through. this is not hard to remove it is held in by small clips. the tricky part is the wires. they are all designed so they cannot be plugged in incorrectly but i have seen what people are capable of. make a map. number them with a sharpie so you know where they go. remove this board and clean it the same way. this on will probably be the worst offender. i cleaned all the boards reassembled and it works like new. below the door is a panel that should also be removed. there is a removable drain filter that should be cleaned out. i found pens and toys in mine. the machine could not pump out the water fast enough and would shut down and trigger f70 and f 20 codes.

F25 error code whirlpool washer did every thing I've found on the web even spent 300 on a control board and service tech still gives erro


im not sure why you replaced the mcu when an error code 25 is a rpm sensor loss , this is the sensor that tells the mcu that the drum is rotating and if so how fast , its been my experience if your getting this code then you either have an agitator blockage or a bad drive motor /sensor, happens most times due to water leak from front gasket worn down

F 25 code


The pressure switch error code. Unscrewing 3 screw from the back, get the top cover off, you will see the small red part with a hose down to the drum. This is the pressure switch. Disconnecting the hose and blow into it to make sure it is not restricted. Unplug & re-plug the control cable and try to turn it on again. If the F25 still remains, replace the switch. To avoid this fault happen, using liquid soap instead of detergent.

What does F 25 code mean?


F25 means: Drive Motor Tachometer Error: If the control is unable to detect motor speed, the machine shuts down. If a failure occurs after high speed spin, the door will unlock after 3 minutes.
Possible solutions:
1) If this is a brand new unit insure that all shipping bolts, spacers and cables have been removed.
2) Unplug unit for 30 seconds.
3) Reconnect power
If this fails to solve the problem then you most likely have a connector problem between the MCU (Motor Control Unit) and the CCU (Central Control Unit) or a failure of one of these 2 units.

F25 error code


this is scary. I got a brand new whirlpool duet sport I ordered from Costco.com. After 19 days of waiting for delivery it finally arrived and was installed by the whirlpool dlvy people. I read the instructions and started my 1st load within an hour of being installed. It never worked. Ok it work 6 mins and stopped on every cycle I put it on and then I got the error code 25. I called their customer svc number and they could not even tell me via the phone what that meant. I am suppose to have another delivered here HOPEFULLY next week but after seeing others having repeated problems I do not know if I should just say no take it all back.
