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.

Kenmore Elite HE 5t 4778 (or 4779?) : Stopped during cycle and flashes the code F 35. I had to pull the plug to re-set the washing cycle, as pushing the stop button twice as instructed did nothing. What is...


If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked

Check the drain pump filter for debris

Check the drain pump

If all the above checks out good . This would indicate that the pressure switch or also called the analog pressure sensor has failed. First you will need to remove the top lid. Usually 2 or 3 screws on the back and the top comes right off. The pressure switch has a clear hose and a clump of wires going to it. Then unplug the hose and blow thru it it should be clear. Check the hose for leaks or obstructions. Also in the back of the washer on the left hand side is a air dome this is where it gets it pressure reading from, make sure it is not obstructed. If all is clear the pressure switch will need to be replaced. Here is a link to help with accessing the pressure switch also if you need diagrams or illustrations of your particular model.

My Elite Kenmore HE 5t Steam on Bulky setting will not run shows F99 error code what does the code mean?


The F99 error indicates the interface and central control are not compatible.

It means you selected a cycle on the interface that the central control does not recognize.

Usually this means the two controls are not compatible which might happen if an older control was installed in a new machine.

If the washer is brand new then I suggest scheduling a warrantee service call.

The only thing I could suggest you try yourself is to enter and run a service test.
The instructions to do so are in the image below.

(Be sure to press the button for a full 4 seconds.)

Perhaps this will reset and coordinate the interface and control.

My kenmore elite He 5t wash machine is flashing F


This typically indicates slow drain condition. Check for any clogs or kinks in the drain line. Also check that the pump is not clogged and that no pump impeller blades are missing/broken and that the impeller moves freely. Any broken/missing blades or if the impeller won't turn freely will indicate a faulty pump. Hard objects can sometimes make it to the pump and cause damage. Hope this helped and best wishes.

F 11 code


The electronic control board is damaged. It needs to be replaced. I think its Part#8182237. As of this date, it is on back-order. Check your warranty book on this part, it is highly expensive. It may be covered under a 2-5 yr. part only warranty.
