Our dryer stopped turning which was the initial problem. After using the diagnostic system we are getting error code F25. We replaced the inlet thermistor and thermal cut-off. When that didn't fix the error code, we also replaced the heating element. Now it is still running the same error code. Any ideas?

The heating element was originally still running, just the drum wasn't turning; however, the old heating element was warped and showed signs of obvious damage. Now the new heating element is not heating up and still sending the same F25 error code.

Does the drum turn now, but no heat now at all?

F:25--->Inlet Thermistor Shorted--->F:25 flashes if the inlet thermistor is shorted. This fault code will ONLY appear when in the diagnostic test mode. See TEST #4a, page 6

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below, DO TEST #4a on page 6 and let us know what you find.

INLET THERMISTOR
The machine control electronics monitors the inlet temperature using an inlet thermistor that is part of the inlet thermistor/high limit thermostat assembly.
1. Activate the diagnostic test mode. See procedure on page 1.
2. If F:24 or F:25 is a displayed error in the diagnostic test mode, the thermistor or wire harness is either open or shorted.

➔ Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
➔ Check wire connections at the machine control electronics and inlet thermistor. See Accessing & Removing the Electronics Assemblies, page 9, and for inlet thermistor location, see figure 9, page 6.
➔ If wire connections are good, remove the wires from the inlet thermistor/high limit thermostat assembly and replace the assembly.
➔ Replace all parts and panels
➔ Plug in dryer or reconnect power

If F:24 or F:25 is not an error that is displayed in the diagnostic test mode, the connections to the thermistor are good. Therefore, check the thermistor’s resistance value, using the following
process:
➔ Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
➔ Access the heater assembly. See figure 2, page 4; and Removing the Front Panel/Drum Assembly, page 9.
➔ Hold a glass bulb thermometer capable of reading from 68° to 176°F (20° to 80°C) in the heater assembly.
➔ Check the resistance of the inlet thermistor.
See figure 9, page 6 for location

➔ If the thermistor resistance agrees with the measurements in the table on page 7, replace the machine control electronics.

Here's the machine control electronics for your model, in case you need to order it:
