My Kenmore Elite HE 5t is showing the F20 code 15-20 seconds into the washing cycle. F20 standing for Water inlet problem. We have cleaned and checked all inlet ports and they are good so what else


Hello Shannon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Code F20 also stands for pressure switch.

You have a incomplete model number so I am not sure if this is the correct switch.

Kenmore elite 5t steam f35 and sud problem


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.

My Kenmore Elite HE5T front loading washer is giving me an F20 (Water inlet problem - no water or insufficient water supply) code. The Drum fills half way up with water in about 5 minutes and then the...


The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.

  1. There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
  2. Near the pressure switch is a clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
  3. If this doesn't help then most likely you will need to replace the pressure switch.

How to fix suds lock on Kenmore


The Sd code on most Kenmore Elite HE washers indicates a suds lock (usually caused by excessive suds do to overuse of detergent). Check for the presence of excessive suds in the washer. If you see a lot of foam, the code is likely caused by this problem. You will likely be able to drain the washer and spin out the clothes once the suds dissipate. Run an empty cycle with 1 cup of liquid chlorine bleach through the washer to help rinse out suds residue. If you see foam emerging during the empty cycle, you may need to repeat this process. You can also use Washer Magic or AFFRESH to help clean suds residue out of the washer. These products are available at your local Sears store or the grocery store. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate quantity. You may need as little as a tablespoon of detergent in a high efficiency washer due to the low water level. You may need even less for a while since the clothes will likely have detergent still dissolved in the fibers that will emerge during subsequent wash cycles.

There are many different models of Kenmore Elite HE washers. If you do not see any apparent problem with excessive suds or need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore Elite HE washer.

So i put a load of clothes in my kenmore elite smartwasher and right after i start the washer the load stops and i get this message ''sud'', what does it mean?


IS IT AN OASIS? JUST RINSE THE SYSTEM OUT WITH WATER. YOU MIGHT BE USING THE WRONG DETERGENT. THOSE MACHINES REQUIRE "HE" DETERGENT.

Hi, I'm house sitting for a friend and he has a kenmore elite washing machine. Which slot do i put the liquid clothing detergent in? softener? or


The LEFT slot is for detergent. Do not overfill, or you may experience a "SUDS" error. It is recommended that only HE detergent is used. The RIGHT front slot is where you put the fabric softener. Again, only fill to the fill line.

These washers are engineered to use very little water, so you only need a little detergent. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dying clothes


Dying usually needs the cloth to be submersed in the liquid so it can absorb the dye. These machines do not fill with water to the point the clothing would be submersed and would not work well in my opinion. eric
