Kenmore He5T F25 and F17, thats right F17!

20 May 2013 - 01:00 PM

We have a 2007 Kenmore (Whirlpool) HE5T Steam washer Model # 110.47789 700 that displays the F25 error and then an F17 (which is not listed anywhere.

 

I saw the F17 error myself after disbelieving my wife and son.

 

The machine has recently started displaying an F25 error randomly.  Most of the times it is with a heavier load in the wash cycle.  The machine works for about 4 minutes then stops rotating, displays the error and stops.

 

I did the full diagnostic and it runs perfectly.  Oddly I can do a drain and rinse which spins at full speed then stops and pauses for 5 minutes with no activity, then displays the mysterious F17 error.

 

When lightly loaded the machine seems to get through a cycle fine.

 

I have read that it is the MCU or Motor, which I will ohm out this evening.  Is there any other possible cause?  I read about the pressure switch but can't seem to find it on this model.  Where is it?  Should I check any thing else?

 

 

Thank you.
