When F25 error code occurs, the Whirlpool washer is disabled, interrupting the wash cycle at any stage. And if error F25 appears at the time of high-speed rotation of the drum, 3 minutes after stopping, the hatch unlocks.
What triggered error code F25?
The error code indicates problems with the tachometer of the drive motor. It says that the electronic system cannot correctly determine the rotation speed, therefore, it stops the further operation of the washing machine. In addition, it may be a problem in the disappearance of the signal between the main board and the engine control unit.
What can you do yourself?
The tachometer is a universal sensor that is used in all types of equipment to calculate the frequency of rotation. If the tachometer fails, the system completely stops the process. To error F25 disappeared, you need to try to perform just a few steps.
- Unplug the cord from the outlet by unplugging the equipment for 5-10 minutes. Reconnect it to the power supply. As a result, the washer will reboot and itself will reset error code F25.
- Check the contacts at the connectors. If they are twisted, bent, or out of the groove, straighten them and insert them into the socket more firmly. And do this at both ends of the wire jumpers.
What drastic measures are needed?
Professionally understand the situation can only representatives of the service center. But if you are confident in your own abilities, you can try to eliminate the F25 error code on Whirlpool washer, and as a result, the error will not be displayed on the screen.
Tachometer malfunction check
Since other components and elements are usually not involved in this problem, all attention should be focused on the engine speed sensor. For this:
- remove the top cover on the washing machine;
- unscrew and remove the front panel;
- Inspect the part for damage.
Sometimes a tachometer is installed in one unit with the engine. Therefore, to get to the tachometer and check it, you have to disassemble almost the entire washing machine. It is worth considering whether you will cope with such a task. If you have not visually found anything, but the F25 error still says that the tachometer is damaged, then change it. It costs $ 60.
Inspection of the drive motor
In this case, measure the resistance with a multimeter. The working engine should show the following output data:
- 6 ohm – by 1-3;
- 6 Ohm – for 1-2;
- 6 Ohm – by 2-3;
- 115 Ohm – at 4-5.
If the numbers differ from the norm, then the reason is in the motor. It is because of it that the system displays error code F25 on the screen. The solution is to restore the connections to the tachometer, or replace the engine. The maximum node price in the assembly is about $ 245.
Examine it visually or with a multimeter. The damaged ends of the wires between the drive motor, the control unit and the central module must be twisted or soldered. Carefully insulate them.
These include the tachometer control unit and the main board. If the connection between them is in order, the signal passes normally and error F25 appears on the display, they must be replaced. The price of the electronic module is from $ 148 to $ 277.
