Machine was making a loud, odd whinning noise when spinning at medium and high speeds. Error code was F-25.
I opened the back of the machine checked all of the connections between the MCU and drive motor, and the connections between the
the MCU and the main control. Everything looked good. I ran the machine through a quick wash cycle, and all the functions seemed to be normal.
(water input, agitation, different spins, during the wash-rinse, etc. The struts were all at the same extention with no grease dripping down.
The tub really maintained a steady, stable position during the wash, even in the final spins. However you could hear the loud wierd sound during the final spin outs, and a very slight wobbling of the shaft and exposed bearing.

Is this the beginning of bearing failure? I noticed on the end of the shaft there is an opening with a little grease showing. Can I use a gun and pump
some high temp grease in? If so what specific kind do I use?

This is greenestone adding something: in regards to the F-25 error code, the various functions done during the wash cycle all seemed to be in a good sequence
and proper length of time.

Weird sounds may be from bad drum bearing. If the bearings are bad enough, they can start binding the drum during spin and cause tach errors. On other Duets, this will show up as F-06, which is also a tach error, like in this one:




Check the drum bearings using this technique:

Thanks Samurai. I just heard today that Whirlpool has put out a bearing kit where you do not have to replace the entire back half of the tub.
However, no one could tell me how labor intensive it is to replace the bearing with this new kit. Cost of kit is about $70.00.

Not heard about that. Do you have a part number for the kit?
