Dying clothes This is not really a problem, but a question that I could not find any information on in the manual. I have a Kenmore Elite 5t washer and was wondering if you can dye clothes with the liquid dye. Has anyone tried it and what were the results? Thanks! Mary

Dying usually needs the cloth to be submersed in the liquid so it can absorb the dye. These machines do not fill with water to the point the clothing would be submersed and would not work well in my opinion. eric

My Kenmore Elite HE 5T Steam Front Loading Washer keeps flashing the code F35. What does this mean? It is not in the manual.


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.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore elite he 5t the code f21 comes on, the hose is ok.


This is a Long Drain Issue. Likely that something is stuck in the pump trap. Take off the mottom tree screws under the drum panel. This will remove the drum panel on the front. From under neither you can see the drain pipe trap. Unscrew the trap cap in the from. Clean out all debris and re-install. this should do it.

My kenmore elite He 5t wash machine is flashing F


This typically indicates slow drain condition. Check for any clogs or kinks in the drain line. Also check that the pump is not clogged and that no pump impeller blades are missing/broken and that the impeller moves freely. Any broken/missing blades or if the impeller won't turn freely will indicate a faulty pump. Hard objects can sometimes make it to the pump and cause damage. Hope this helped and best wishes.

F 11 code


The electronic control board is damaged. It needs to be replaced. I think its Part#8182237. As of this date, it is on back-order. Check your warranty book on this part, it is highly expensive. It may be covered under a 2-5 yr. part only warranty.
