Suds error then F35 at the beginning of the was cycle
Our Wirlpool Duet steam washer is a year old, is clean, but will not wash. At the beginning of any wash cycle, it gets a "suds" error, then an F35 error. We have checked all of the hoses and drain, all of them are clean, no clogs. What do we do next?
Re: Suds error then F35 at the beginning of the was cycle
I too have a Whirlpool Duet Steam Washer that is just 13 months old and had this same problem. If you have searched the internet about this you have probably noticed that there are quite a few people out there with the same problem. It is the analog pressure sensor switch. I was lucky enough to find one that I received last Friday. It is an easy fix if you're not afraid to attempt it yourself.....the problem you will probably have is finding the part. I searched several parts stores and everyone had them on a 3 to 4 week backorder, but I got lucky and found ONE in stock. If you remove the top of the washer by removing the 3 screws that hold it on in the back and sliding it off, you can see the pressure switch on the right/rear side of the washer. To remove the switch you have to remove the wires that plug into the switch and then turn the switch and pop it out of the side...the replacement just snaps back in the same way. My husband replaced the switch in probably less than 5 minutes and my washer is back up and running. Good luck finding the part (W10156252). I did write a letter to Whirlpool stating that this seems to be an on-going problem with these washers and that if they cannot reimburse the consumer in some way, the least they could do is make this part more readily accessible. Good luck.

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue
with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad.
Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You
can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me
if you have any other questions.
SUDS error = SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE) If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again. If too much detergent was used: - Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle. - Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. 1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 6. Check drain pump. 7. Check the pressure switch. 8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle. F35 error = ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE If this failure is displayed, there is any malfunction of the steamer component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board. 1. Check if pressure hose is fi xed correctly. 2. Check if the airtrap is not blocked. 3. Check if the hose is not blocked.
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.
• 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.
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.
I also got the SUDS error followed by F35 many times. I replaced the analog water level switch, Wirlpool part number W10156252, and the problem went away. The part is located against the back right corner of the top of the washer after removing the top cover. The part cost $62.99 + $12.95 express shipping from ApplianceZone.net. I have the Kenmore HE3t Steam Washer, model number 110.46752 700 front loader. I was able to run about 6 loads of laundry by unplugging the washer, waiting about 5 minutes, the re-plugging and re-starting the washer. Thereafter, the problem became permanent. I always used HE detergent. The washer was purchased new in December 2007, and the I made the repair in September 2009. I spent about $1300 for the Kenmore H3t Steam Washer, and I am disappointed that it required repair after less than 2 years. My mothers old Maytag washer lasted more than 15 years, and was not susceptible to soap SUDS.
if it is less than one year old call for service it should be covered. if not take the kick panel off and locate the tech sheet it is either in the kick panel or in the cabinet to the right. it will give you a list of error codes find out what it means and let me know thanks
Our new Whirlpool Duet had the same problem after only three months of use. We contacted Whirlpool since the washer is still under warranty. The issue is a "bad pressure switch". The part number is W10156252. Service company replaced the part yesterday, and the washer is working like normal. Whirlpool nor the service company had any explanation why the part would go bad in such a short time. No charge since the washer is under warranty.
WARNING - There must be a shortageWe were initially told that the part was backordered for 2 to 3 weeks. We even tried to obtain the part through other vendors and got the same time frame. Furious with the potential of being without a brand new washer for 3 weeks, we spent many hours on the phone with Whirlpool trying to expedite the part. After some strong encouragement and moving the issue up the chain of customer service, Whirlpool agreed to pull a part from the factory inventory where the washers are built. The only problem is that nobody could tell us when, or if, the new part would be shipped. Suddenly, the part just arrived by FedEx at our house. In all, our washer was inoperable for 1 week. Be persistent. They will tell you over and over there is nothing they can do.
If you negotiate well, Whirlpool will extend your factory warranty for an additional year.
