Thank you for your question.

F25 indicates a motor tachometer error.

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. Please make sure to unplug the washer first. 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 each wire connector 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 volt ohmmeter 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 to 2 6 ohms

Pin 2 to 3 6 ohms

Pin 4 to 5 115 ohms

If the readings are close to what is listed above the motor is fine and the problem could be a defective motor control or the harness. At this point, you can order the motor control (mostly the problem) but it is not returnable if it does not fix the washer or have a service technician repair the washer. The technician will be able to accurately diagnose the problem to quickly repair the washer.

I have added a few images to help you with accessing the components and ohming the motor.
