Washer displays F35


F35 indicates a water level pressure sensor failure. The SUD is normally displayed when there is excessive detergent suds in the tub. Make sure you are only using the recommended amount of HE detergent. Then run the washer without clothes on a drain and spin cycle. If the tub is empty and you do not see any suds please continue with the following trouble shooting tips. A loose wire harness connection could be causing this problem if there is no water or suds in the tub.

I recommend unplugging the washer and removing the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer frame. Remove the screws and then pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off of the washer. The analog water level pressure sensor is shown in the first image below. The second image shows a clear picture of this component. Check the wire harness connection on this sensor. If you find a loose connection, secure the wire harness properly on the component then reassemble and test the washer. If you continue to get the F35 code, then the pressure switch will need to be replaced.

You can order a new analog water level pressure sensor from the Sears PartsDirect website.

New washer draining out while washing or rinshing


If this is a brand new unit, make sure that the drain hose is hooked up at a level at or above the level of the tub. If it is too low, it can siphon the tub of water.

Water leaking form bottom of door while draining water from tub


Check that the rubber door seal isn't damaged. The smallest tear or split will let water out. A damaged door seal needs to be replaced with a new one. I assume the water level is normal because excessive water depth can do the same thing...A new door seal is not a big job for a tech......Nomess

The water will not shut off after filling up the washing machine and floods the wash room


Sand or trash in the air line going up to the water level switch. Blow out that tube and connect it back secure. Pump out any water in the tub at the time of the fix and retry on low level.Look at this diagram: water%20level%20operation.jpg As you can see the rubber tube from the bottom of the tub allows air pressure to push against the switch till it shuts down the valve and starts the wash cycle. Remedy this problem: Simply remove the tube from the switch and blow it out. Use them lungs!. Get that sand and trash out of the sump. Reconnect the hose tightly and pump out any standing water. Then restart the machine. If you have a good tight connection the machine should start working like normal. No parts needed!

Water level too low. clother wet. No water visible or suds. What is wrong.


Your expectations are based on top load washers.
Front load washers use only a very little water, and suds are an enemy. (HE soaps are designed to clean without suds. Suds are really for show and cause drag on the wash tub during spin.) If you start a load with no clothes, you will see that the water level never gets above a couple inches in the tub. That is the correct water level for front loading machines. PS. Because of the low water use, make sure you use very little soap. (one to two tablespoons per load only!)

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.

Washer does not fill


many new machines use what we would only describe as hardly any water, does it do the job properly, if so then fine leave it as is,

this is calculated by computer so that the lowest level of water is used to do the job, hence the lowest amount of electric is used to warm it up, (a bit like filling the kettle to the top for one cup of coffee,its a waste)

its not what we see that matters, its what it does, after all we don't generally sit and watch it do we?
