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.

Kenmoor elite he 5t steam washer 47787 leaking from bottom. cant tell where leak is origanating from


Check your incoming fittings at the back of the machine-then if they aren't leaking your going to need to do a tear down and check inside machine-if you can't see anything going on you may need to hook water back up and run to see where the leak is-cheers Denny

I get a F35 error code on my Elite 5t Steam washer. What should I do?


Hi

Error code F 35 means ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE. There is any malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board. Please check whether the pressure hose is fixed firmly, and the air trap is not blocked. Make sure the hose is not plugged. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is a problem with the water level pressure switch operation. There could be a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome is clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch, you would need to replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Kenmore elite washer - HE 5t front load giving error F 35. will not take soap.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F 35 means Analog Pressure Sensor Failure- which means that there is a malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

1. Check that the pressure hose is fixed correctly.
2. Check that the air trap is not blocked.
3. Check that the hose is not blocked


If still the issue is not resolved then it is an issue with the water level pressure switch operation and there is a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome are clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else post a comment for further assistance.

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.

My Elite Kenmore HE 5t Steam on Bulky setting will not run shows F99 error code what does the code mean?


The F99 error indicates the interface and central control are not compatible.

It means you selected a cycle on the interface that the central control does not recognize.

Usually this means the two controls are not compatible which might happen if an older control was installed in a new machine.

If the washer is brand new then I suggest scheduling a warrantee service call.

The only thing I could suggest you try yourself is to enter and run a service test.
The instructions to do so are in the image below.

(Be sure to press the button for a full 4 seconds.)

Perhaps this will reset and coordinate the interface and control.

Code F20 is appearing on me washing machine


Hi

Error F 20 means "No Water Detect" error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed.

You'll need to check for the following--

1- Check the Inlet water valve if it is clogged.
2- Make sure water taps are working fine.
3- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
