The F35 error code indicates a problem with the analog pressure sensor, air hose or air trap. If the hose and trap are good you will need to replace the pressure sensor

The "Sud" error code indicates too much or the wrong kind of laundry soap was used. Be sure to use only HE (high efficiency) detergent on this model of washer.

Kenmore elite front load washer model 46752701 after replacing pressure control switch i still get f35 code


Most common cause for the F35 error code: Using non-HE detergent. Detergent slime builds up in the hose, eventually getting into the analog pressure switch and killing it. Make sure you flush out as much soap as possible and make sure to use HE soap or it can keep occurring, also some vinger can calm down the suds

I have an HE 5T Steam Front Loading Automatic Washer. It is showing Sud indication, nothing seems like happening and after few minutes it will show F35. What does it mean?


Hello again,
I found your manual. If you like to get it, go HERE. This is what it says about "SUDS" action:
"SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
Near the bottom of the troubleshooting page, it gives this for errors:
"F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
It doesn't specifically state what "F35" is, so I can only suggest these steps, and see if this solves your problem. If it doesn't I would be inclined to believe that there is a problem with a part, which would probably be serviceable by a tech from Sears or their partner service company.
Hope this clears it up for you.
Please rate and comment. Thank You
Joe

I am getting both the SUDS and F35 errors on my Kenmore Elite HE3t steam washer. How can I check the drain filter to clear any debris or build up?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Kenmore Elite HE 5T Steam Front Loading Washer keeps flashing the code F35. What does this mean? It is not in the manual.


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.

Sud and f35 error in my kenmore elite h5 steam washer. The washer do not wash the cloth and flash F35.


I got the f35 and suds code repeatedly and my clothes weren't washed, I ordered from Sears the analog pressure switch that regulates the water coming into the washer and the codes went away, the part is esitmately $125.00 including shipping but you have to order from the Sears parts department.If you print a diagram of the washer it is #38 in the diagram and is easy to replace. You can install it yourself and as a female I did not call service to do it.
