The error can be caused from obstructions in your drain pump (or lines) to using the wrong type (or too much) of detergent. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know what you find. This problem usually has a simple remedy that does not require a repairman. However, if you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    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

    Sud


    This is a Suds Detect error code. The following link explains the error and potential causes:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608687-sud_error

    The number one cause of the error is from using too much, or the wrong type of detergent. You are required to High Efficiency (HE) detergent with these washers because the concentration is formulated for HE washers that use small amounts of water. Using the wrong type of detergent can also void any warranty you may have.

    NOTE: HE detergent does not have a lot of suds, which often confuses consumers into thinking they aren't using enough detergent. With HE washers little to no suds if normal and preferred.

    Secondary causes can come from something restricting the drainage system. Most notably, something lodged in the drain pump and/or drain hose(s). I've included a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump reservior if required.

    Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have questions. I hope this helps you.

    I have a Kenomore Elite HE4t Washer. I am getting an F02 error message. I've tried to rerun washer & get SUDS on and off. Fo2 message appears again and cycle shuts down. Door will not unlock. Any...


    HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

    If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

    Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

    NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

    Potential Causes

    • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
    • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
    • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
    • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

    Want to stack my Kenmore HE4 Dryer on top of my Kenmore HE3t W/M


    When you originally ordered the dryer, it should've come with a stacking kit that is compatible with the HE 3T or HE 4T washer. It is basically a foam piece that goes on each side of the washer, and then the dryer is connected to it from the side. If you do not have this piece, it should be available to order if you visit http://www.searspartsdirect.com Just enter the model number from your dryer (inside the door frame) and it should pull up a parts list. Or just try searching for a stacking kit for Kenmore dryer. Hope this helps.

    Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer


    WE had a person with the same problem with her HE4 front loaded washer. What we discovered was when we opened up the soap resivour was that soap built up around the float valves causing them to stick.

    A technician I knew put vinegar down the soap dispensor and ran the cycle, with the washer empty. He put it on in the hot water mode and ran it for four or five complete cycles like washing clothes.

    It worked for him. Try it like it did for him to see if it helps. If not, you will need to contact a service technician to see if the SUD error code means something else.

    Sometimes the timer boards get a bit of moisture on them and cause a corrosion headache. I have yet to see anyone figure out a way to dry them off, and when condensation builds up, it usually means there is a problem causing the condensation to get that far up. On some versions a foam seal gets worn out from time, often needs to be replaced to prevent moisture built up.

    Another thing that sometimes does it is the back of the machine, will be too close to the wall or have debris back behind there causing it not to be able to breath.

    Kenmore Elite 4t


    This what to check for F/H code from repair manual.
    If the water is coming into machine, make sure drain hose is only sticking into drain pipe about 6 inches. Post back if you have any questions.


    No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.
    If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then
    valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
    Or
    If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has
    detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure
    switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.
    Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
    Potential Causes
    • If there is no water in the unit:
    • Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    • Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    • Verify inlet valve operation
    • If there is water in the unit:
    • Verify Drain pump operation
    • Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and
    Pressure switch
    • Verify there is not a siphon problem
    • Verify wire harness connections to; Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump,
    Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
    • Check all hoses for possible leaks
    • Verify pressure switch operation
    • Verify flow meter operation
    • Verify CCU operation
