Hi Justin,



Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Yes, the F/25 is a DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR. If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 minutes. You will need to ohm the motor and tachometer.

The diagnosis of this issue will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have an ohm/volt meter and are confident in your technical abilities, please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
