Suds then f 35 error code then machine shuts off

Kenmore elite he5t washer, i was using the wrong detergent for about a year now . Now it says suds at the beginning of any cycle and the f 35, I've tried cleaning it but no cycle will finish. I've also tried to just rinse and drain it a few hundred times without clothes in it with no luck. I hope I haven't ruined it for being ignorant.

My kenmore washer showes sud code


If it is similar to the Whirlpool duet,

Try using less soap (hi eff machine)
try using more fabric softner
to clear the occasional Sud warning, I run the machine on "quick wash" with no detergent/additive. gives it two more quick spin cycles in 30-35 minutes, usually clears it.

Error f35? What's the fix?


They can and fixed my washer today! The fix was the replacement of a switch. The item # was W10156252 for my washer. It is called a switch-WL. Item # may be different for your model. I was getting SUDS and F35 errors. To install it you just remove the top part of the washer and should be located at the upper right-hand side, attached to a black hose. The switch has a small computer board. The price of the swith is around $130. Fortunately I bought a 3-year warranty on my washer.

HE5t Steam shows SUD then f35. I have unplugged it. Plugged it back in; started a rinse only cycle and still it show this error. The washer is empty. I check the sensor on the back right hand area that I...


SUD means there are too many soap suds in the washer. Are you using a front load approved detergent? Are you using the correct amount? or slightly less is better.

What does Sud mean on the washer machine


Typically it is indicating there are too much suds in the machine for it to operate effectively. i.e. too much detergent, wrong type of detergent, or a load of soap filled towels etc. Rinse the unit out via a "quick wash" cycle without any garments in the machine and try again...using "HE" detergent, or less of the detergent. DO NOT use non-HE no matter what sales people or friends have said. It is the great destroyer of tub bearings, clothing and just all around BAD. Good luck :)

My Kenmore Elite HE5t washer flashes SUD continually, then goes to F35 mode and shuts off. Help!


Sometimes the SUDS/F35 is because of TOO MUCH detergent. To clear you have to set the cycle on rinse and then keep pouring cups of water into the detergent container as the cycle is going. You might have to do this a few times because if the SUDS message comes up the water flow will stop. Just unplug and try again. Also when the detergent container is finally clear you will see the little rotators gears move around when the cycle starts.

F35 Message on Brand New Washer


suds is determined using the level sw located on top right rear side. remove top cover to see. most letter codes do convert to a f code. most common reason for suds error is use of standard detergent or too much detergent. running a empty load of fabric softener can clean the system. or rinse/spin with nothing. other common problem is this is a whirlpool product.
