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.

The "SUDS" or "SUD" error can be caused by too much detergent, improper detergent, drain pump/drain line problem, or pressure switch malfunction.

1. If you are not using HE detergent, you need to be. These washers are designed to use HE detergent which is formulated for wash tubs that use 5 to 7 gallons of water. If you use regular detergent, you are, in affect, placing a higher concentration of detergent in the washer that is normally formulated for wash tubs that have a 35 gallon capacity. The manufacturer should have a disclaimer in the owner's manual explaining this. In most cases this will also void your warranty. NOTE: Prolonged use of the wrong detergent can damage the drain pump components and or wash tub seals.

If you are using the correct detergent, double check the label to make sure it is not double (2X) or triple (3X) concentrated. You could still be placing too much soap in your wash.

To get rid of excessive detergent, place the washer on a RINSE & SPIN cycle, then run it through a normal wash cycle with NO detergent added. You may have to repeat these steps depending on the amount of detergent used.

2. If you do not have a detergent issue, double check the drain pump and drain lines to ensure they are not obstructed in any way. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

Obstructions in the drain pump and/or drain lines can attribute to air getting trapped in the drain pump and cause the error code. Double check all electrical connections to the drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU). You will need to remove the top panel of the washer to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top panel in place. With the screws removed, slide the panel back, then off. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the center of the washer. The Drain Pump connector will be the 6th connector (facing from the front L to R) in the center of the CCU.

3. Check the Pressure Switch to ensure it is good. The Pressure Switch is located to the right of the CCU as you are looking from the front. It is a small cylindrical shaped device with a connector plug and an air hose attached. The switch can be checked at several water levels by removing the plug and taking resistance readings at the connector pins. Readings are as follows:

(Pins are numbered R to L facing the from the REAR)

Pins 1 to 2 (SUDS Detect) - 0 ohms
Pins 3 to 4 (Overflow) - 0 ohms
Pins 4 to 5 (L1) - 0 ohms
Pins 4 to 6 (Empty) - 0 ohms

Washer stops running and displays code SUD. The water doesn't drain until It's put on the rinse/spin cycle.


Make sure you are using HE (High Efficiency)detergent. The codes could mean your washer is telling you it has used a built in "SUD" routine during final rinse

F32 codewhirlpool duet ht frontload washer F 32 code Whirlpool ht frontload washer displays f 32 code


F32 is a pressure switch failure. It controls the water level in the washer. The switch is a round plastic part mounted on the right panel towards the back right corner. Remove the switch by disconnecting the wire harness and the rubber tube connected to it and gently rotate it 90 degrees CCW and you should be able to pull it out easily. Some suggest that blowing on the tube will clean out anything that could be clogging it as a quick fix. If you suspect the switch you test it by checking two things; Blow on the inlet that was connected to the rubber tube you should hear a couple of clicks. The second test is to check if the switch works electrically. If the switch is bad you will need to replace it.

Whirlpool Front Load - Code F 32 - Cannot open door


F32 is the code for Pressure Switch Failure. Which is only found on a tech computer. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, either black or white, that is the pressure switch box. Check to make sure all the quick connect wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32, you'll need to get a new Pressure switch box. If that doesn't fix it then it could be the control box( the bigger rectangular box in the front right that the wires connect to.) Good Luck and Happy Washing

Whirlpool duet washer


Is there a number associated with the "F" display? Usually when the washer displays anything with an "F" it has generated a fault code. But, it will usually have a number or another set of letters associated with it indicating what area of the washer has generated the problem. If you could double-check and provide more info I might be able to lead you in the right direction.
