I am getting an F 25 flashing signal what do I do next
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 2 months ago.

will the washer go into a full high spin or does it just tumble back and forth?

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 2 months ago.

also you say it goes through the cycles but you say its not getting water, if its not getting water its impossible for it to go through the full cycle without stopping and giving an error code?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't think it does either

Now the power light the. Ontrol lock button is on & the pause button is flashing
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 2 months ago.

ok the F25 error code is DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR which means the computer is unable to properly detect motor speed, in most cases this is caused by a failed motor but it can be a motor control board issue as well so the only way to know for sure is to have an ohm/volt meter and do some troubleshooting on the motor circuit if you don't have one or know how to use one then I would highly recommend you call a service company out to make the diagnosis for you otherwise you may just throwing money away on parts you don't need unless you just want to replace both the motor and the motor control but that is pretty expensive. Let me know if you want troubleshooting info if you want to attempt to diagnose it yourself and you have a meter and know how to use it, thanks. If not please read below:
