Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Has been flashing since I loaded the cartridge and closed the front load door. Will not stop flashing. No error code only the 35 minute flash.
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.
