Question about Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer

Open Question

Got SUD/F 35 error, replaced Analog Pressure switch. Still got SUD/F 35 error. Returned pressure switch and got another (just to be sure) and still get SUD error as soon as water is pushed into the washer. So, I'm 99.9% it's not the pressure switch, the black tube from the switch to the tub is clean and clog free. The pump is moving water fine, and the trap is completely clean. The detergent "drawer" is completely cleaned out. whats next? I've pushed on every electric connection i can see to make sure of no loose connections. Also, this machine is 3 yrs old, with no issues before. No change in HE detergent or quantity per load...

SOURCE: my kenmore washer is overfilling even though I changed the pressure switch

The clear plastic tube runs from the pressure switch to the air dome on the lower right-hand side of the wash tub. If the air dome end of the hose were loose, water would begin to spill out of the bottom of the washer when the level in the tub reaches only a few inches.

If the washer is filling the tub completely, but your pressure switch is not shutting the water off, you will need to confirm you have a good electrical connection, and that you do not have a small hole in the air hose somewhere. It is possible for the air hose to develop leaks where it contacts the washer casing and begins to chafe. If your electrical connections to the pressure switch are secure, trace the wires back to the timer and make sure you have good continuity. There should be a wiring diagram located under the operator console. Please refer to the following link for instructions on how to access the inside of your washing machine:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

I know the instructions are for replacing a motor coupling, but the steps are still the same for opening the console and removing the outside washer casing. Please let me know, if you require further assistance. If you don't get anywhere with this advice, please post back with your complete model number. It may help me further with diagnosing your problem. I hope this provides you with a solution.

PS I apologize for taking so long getting back to you.

This code is tricky to troubleshoot, so jsrock516 advises to eliminate the easy common sense items first

SOURCE: When I try to use

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F 35 means ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE- If this failure is displayed then there is any malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

1. Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
2. Check if the air trap is not blocked.
3. Check if the hose is not blocked


If it still not works then it is a problem with the water level pressure switch operation. There could be a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome are clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

SOURCE: I have a kenmore elite HE3 washer. I was getting the sud error and then eventually F02. I cleaned out all the drain lines and pump filter trap and this did not help. I've now replaced the pump

I endevor to purchase a new unit. I've had the same electrical issue with the "F" variable coming up for EACH cycle. I've pressed the Pause/Cancel button and attempted to resume the cycle. While that did work, again, the "F" would come up and the cycle disrupted. I think I will end up paying quite a bit to have it serviced. My washer is 7 years old and I've had it serviced twice to date. I intend on purchasing new in the New Year, a Samsung or LG.

WHIRLPOOL DUET WASHER MODEL #WFW9600TW01 F-35 & F-28 ERROR


The F35 indicates a water level pressure sensor failure. A loose wire harness connection could be causing this problem if there is no water or suds in the tub. I recommend unplugging the washer and removing the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer frame. Remove the screws and then pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off of the washer. The analog water level pressure sensor is shown in the first image below. The second image shows a clear picture of this component. Check the wire harness connection on this sensor. If you find a loose connection, secure the wire harness properly on the component then reassemble and test the washer. If you continue to get the F35 code, then the pressure switch will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

also for the F-28 issue

Kenmore elite has error message F35 as the cycle begin and sud appears and the washer just stops,


Hi

Error code F 35 means ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE. There is any malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board. Please check whether the pressure hose is fixed firmly, and the air trap is not blocked. Make sure the hose is not plugged. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is a problem with the water level pressure switch operation. There could be a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome is clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch, you would need to replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

When trying to run the washer we get a SUD error almost right away. Than after a while of nothing happening a F 35 error pops up.

Error code F 35. When you re-start it, it shows a SUD alarm. Than after a period of time without anything really happening the F 35 error pops up.

Error code F 35 and SUD code


Save yourself a lot of time and money and replace the analog pressure switch. This will solve your issues by taking care of both error codes at the same time.

Code f35 and sud on washer machine/whirlpool duet front loader


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.
