I opened the unit and replaced a 1.25A fuse which had blown. check your wiring diagram. look in back panel and check the little fuses but this is the one you need to replace. 1.25a thats the main cause of this error

Based on my brief internet research on this issue, after recieving the same error code, it appears to result from a communication issue between the electronic systems of the machine. Personally, I'm returning mine. Too many posts about this error.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE5 Dryer . I have a error code F25. I have replaced the thermistor and the fuse. It still does not work. Thank you for your help.

Check out this reply.........down the answer page..

Kenmore He5 electric dryer error code F01

The F-01 error code means that the thermistor has failed. The dryer 'thinks' that the thermistor is open when, in fact, the part has shorted out. The thermistor is designed to read and control the temperatures within the dryer. When this part is faulty, your Kenmore dryer will no longer work. You can locate this part near the bottom of the dryer, next to the exhaust.

Kenmore HE5 steam dryer powers on but won't start?

I found this

F:50 - Water Valve Failure
F:50 flashes if no voltage is detected at the water valve relay.
? Check that the wires are plugged in on the valve and at the
relay on the electronic control. This fault code appears ONLY when in the Diagnostic Test Mode.

and then the OP said

Well the thermal fuse and the thermistor were both bad, replaced and the dryer is working fine.

Thanks for the help Jeff....

The F30 code is a false code. It does not mean anything. The dryer will work fine. When I worked for Whirlpool, this was a programming issue. I owned the same dryer. It displayed this code and engineers explained this to me. The dryer worked fine.

My kenmore elite dryer he5 shows code F01 What does that mean

The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes

A code E1 flashes the dryer shuts off and the clothes are still wet

The fault code E1 means the electronic control detected the thermistor is open. It's either the wire harness connecting the thermistor and electronic control is broken or the connection is loose or the thermistor is indeed open. Measure the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the temperature and resistance table for the normal thermistor resistance values.
