If you have a wet-dry vac, put it on the end of the drain hose and **** it out. There may be something blocking the line that you can't see.

Had same problem. Followed advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

I believe the SUDS error is in direct relationship to the clogged drain problem. Yes...the error can be generated by the use of too much soap. But, it is also caused by too much air in the drain pump. This is caused by a clog somewhere. A clog in the drain area of the gasket is not going to cause this. The problem is your drain line and/or drain pump. If you click on the link below, I have step-by-step instructions on how to access the drain pump and clean it out.
I have experienced on one occasion where the drain hose coming from the bottom of the wash tub was clogged. This, ironically, was from someone washing a rug that had a ton of sand and dirt in it. I had to remove this hose from the bottom of the wash tub and clean it out. I mention this just in case cleaning the drain pump is not enough.
I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back if you need further assistance.

F35 has to do with the pressure switch which is located under the top panel on the back right. It will have a little black hose hooked to it. This happens when SUDS or detergent somehow gets up into it and usually locks unit out. Only solution is to replace pressure switch. You can find the tech sheet behind the bottom front panel usually tape to the back side of that panel or taped to the bottom right side inside unit. Hope this helps

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
