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
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

Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. You can take a flashlight, remove the hoses from the pump and look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers for broken or missing blades and ensure that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective and will need replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump or drain line. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Testimonial: "I appreciate the feed back. Thanks, Howard"
My old Bosch only had a filter in the machine (where the hose attaches. My Exxcel has a filter IN THE HOSE at the tap end too. I removed that one and it made a big difference !

Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked.

SOURCE: F17 error, what does it mean?
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
My list for Siemens/Bosch states 'F17' as being 'inlet valve problem'. Sorry- service call ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
