    I have a Kenmore HE5t Steam King Capacity Washer. Keeps getting the F35 code and nothing will work until I unplug it and try it again.

    Thank you so much. Someone also mentioned that it could be a pressure switch. Thanks again!

    If you open the bottom of the washer there should be like 3 screws holding it in you will find a service manual, look up the F35 code, the manual/cheat book may also be under the top cover (another 3 screws) cant remember where they put them. it could be a pressure switch issue or a fill valve issue or a faulty door lock.

F-35 code is a problem in the pressure switch. the washer thinks its full of water and will not unlock the door replace the pressure switch which is under the top panel and the part # 8181695

2) if do not obey press and hold END OF CYCLE, wait about 10seconds
3) reset the machine unplugged from wall by 45 minutes, and then plug again, and turn on and unlock the door

God bless you

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...


I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

2 yr old Whirlpool duet washer,suds and now f35 codes. Also when put on cold water i can only get hot water ?


the only reason you would get hot water on the cold setting is if the water lines have been crossed.you can usually clear the cosde by running nothing but clean water through the wash cycle and then use a little less soap.on the next was cycle.unplug the unit for a little bit then wait awhile and run the washer empty.

I have a Whirlpool model WFW9600TW01 front loading duet steam automatic washer. I am getting error F35 both when I try to run a load and when I run the diagnostic program. I have cleaned all the hoses,...


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.

Control lock light will not go off.


Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Oven door won't unlock


I had the same problem on my Kenmore Electric Range. Door would not unlock. Tried pressing "Off" for multiple seconds, but still would not unlock. No error codes. Clock was displaying normally. Finally decided to try running it thru the self cleaning operation to get it to cycle thru locking and unlocking the door. When I started self clean, the door automatically went thru the auto lock and "locked" appeared in the display. I then hit "Off" to clear it and stop the cleaning cycle. The door then unlocked as normal!
