Question about Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer

1 Answer

What does F25 mean on my Kenmore Elite HE5t washer ? It is making a loud grinding noise while it is spinning and stops in the middle of cycle and flashes F25. I took the back off and ran a cycle and watched it and I think I know where the noise is coming from and there is fine metal powder under the part the noise is coming from. Where can i get a repair manual?

F25 indicates a possible drive motor tachometer error. (NOTE: The tech sheet is located behind the front quarter panel- remove the three hex head screws at the very bottom to remove the panel. The tech sheets will be folded up in a little plastic pouch.

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 reseat them on the board. Now retest the washer. If the washer still fails, you will need a meter to ohm the motor.

With the washer unplugged, locate the motor harness. Now unplug the motor connector to ohm the motor. Follow the list below to check the motor.

* Pin 1 to 3 6 ohms
* Pin 1 to2 6 ohms
* Pin 2 to 3 6 ohms
* Pin 4 to5 115 ohms

If the readings are close to what is listed above the motor is fine.

Live voltage checks are dangerous, and possibly deadly. Exercise caution at all times. If you are not comfortable working with live electricity I suggest you call an experienced service technician. I have provided you with a wire diagram with what the voltages should be. If the voltages are correct I would then recommend that you replace the motor control.

Washer makes loud noise (seemingly unbalanced) while spinning


Suggest making sure all four (4) screw leg adjusters are set correctly i.e. does it wobble if you shake like a "pin ball machine", when not in use? If yes, adjust the screw legs in each corner. To ensure the machine is sitting level and not able to shake... God Luck

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.

If your washer fills, agitates, drains, but will not spin, the likely cause is the gear case (transmission). A new gear case can run about $200 just for the part. With labor, this could be a bit expensive to repair. I hope this helps you some.
