I had the same problem with mine and ended up taking it to an authorised repairer to sort out. If I remember correctly the problem was due to dirt getting into some part of the system. Sorry I can't be of more help.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool WFW9600TW01 front load washer.

Hi dear.I may have solution for the SUD error.You can give it a go.But I do not know any thing about F35 one
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If “Sud” is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Potential Causes

• 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 Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
• Check Drain Pump
• Check the Pressure Switch
• Check CCU

Replace failed component.

As it says run couple of rine cycles it should get back to normal.I hope that helps you.Thanks.

LG Washing machine IE error code Solutions

An IE error code will appear if the washer has not filled with water in approximately 8 minutes.

Are the water valves opened completely?

If an IE error code appears on the washer, check to make sure both hot and cold-water taps are open completely. After both valves have been opened, unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

Are the inlet hose filters clogged?

There are filters on the inlet hose connections of the washing machine. They are intended to filter away mineral deposits from hard water and other debris from getting into the unit. If clogged, water will not flow through these filters into the washer. Turn off both the hot and cold water taps, disconnect the inlet hoses from the back of the washing machine, and clean the inlet filters gently but thoroughly.

Are the inlet hoses attached properly?

If the inlet hoses are not attached to the machine correctly, it will prevent proper water flow to the washer. Turn off the hot and cold water supply then disconnect and reconnect the inlet hoses. Ensure that they are threaded properly. After the hoses have been reconnected, open the water taps completely, check for leaks, and unplug the washer for 10 seconds and retry the wash cycle.

NOTE: The inlet filters are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. Because of their small size, take care when removing and cleaning the inlet filters so that they do not break.

the noise you're describing is normal - there is water in a sealed balance ring on the inner tub. To get rid of the mildew and smell, leave door open after cycle and use something like Affresh or "Smelly washer" stuff monthly or more often.

My Whirlpool Duet Washer that is 5 years old all is having a problem......after a was cycle the tub continues to slow fill with water. I have noticed that there is a slow to medium drip coming from the...

The problem is commonly caused by either a pressure switch malfunction, or a bad water inlet valve. The way you can tell is to leave the water turned on and unplug the washer. If the water continues to flow, the problem is the water inlet valve. If the water stops, the pressure switch.

To access either component, you need to remove the top panel of the washer. Locate the three screws that hold the top panel in place and remove. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. The water inlet valve will be loacted in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). The pressure switch will be in the rear on the right.

To replace the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.

The pressure switch is even easier. One connector plug and an air hose is the only thing attached to the switch. The switch is usually snapped in place along the interior cabinet wall with no screws holding it in place.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Water Inlet Valve: 8181694
Pressure Switch: 8181695

I hope I've given you enough ideas to work with in narrowing down the cause of your symptoms. This is generally a very simple repair, that isn't very expensive. Any replacement parts can be purchased on line at the following websites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Running a clean cycle will not correct this problem as the source of the problem is BEFORE the washer. The clean cycle will cure many problems in the washer drum, front dispenser and drainage system.

Water is running slow in machine

This is usually caused be either a clogged hose screen (most likely) or low water pressure. To check the hose screen shut off the water to the washer and then unscrew the washer hoses at the washer. You should see wire screen filters either on the end of the hose or in the washer where the hose was attached. Usually the hot water one gets clogged with rust. They don't usually come out so try cleaning it with a stiff brush. Once cleaned connect the hoses, turn on the water and see if it is better.

I have a karcher 411 A jet washer, there doesn't seem to be enough pressure to do the job. I have bought a new wand but it doesn't seem to make any difference, any ideas, what am I doing wrong

Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

Karcher Pressure washer

don't know if this will help, but when I use mine, to start the pressure up I have to turn the nozzle to fine spray then turn it to the power spray and it works every time, shouldn't have to do this but I got it for nothing.
