    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.

WHIRLPOOL DUET WASHER MODEL #WFW9600TW01 F-35 & F-28 ERROR


The F35 indicates a water level pressure sensor failure. A loose wire harness connection could be causing this problem if there is no water or suds in the tub. I recommend unplugging the washer and removing the top panel. Screws at the very back of the top panel secure it to the washer frame. Remove the screws and then pull the top panel slightly back and then up and off of the washer. The analog water level pressure sensor is shown in the first image below. The second image shows a clear picture of this component. Check the wire harness connection on this sensor. If you find a loose connection, secure the wire harness properly on the component then reassemble and test the washer. If you continue to get the F35 code, then the pressure switch will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

Washer displays F35


F35 indicates a water level pressure sensor failure. The SUD is normally displayed when there is excessive detergent suds in the tub. Make sure you are only using the recommended amount of HE detergent. Then run the washer without clothes on a drain and spin cycle. If the tub is empty and you do not see any suds please continue with the following trouble shooting tips. A loose wire harness connection could be causing this problem if there is no water or suds in the tub.

You can order a new analog water level pressure sensor from the Sears PartsDirect website.

I am getting the code F35. It has happened once in the past and I unplugged it and it rebooted and went through the cycle fine. This time it is not rebooting and won't drain. What does the code mean and...


First remove the service panel and check if junk is in the filter.

themobilian_2299.jpg
This thing works on air pressure rising in the tub from a small tube connected to it.
If that tube has a hole in it or has fallen off the component or has junk in it then the part won't relay the pressure readings to the main control and wreck that freight train.

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.

Trouble code f35


The problem is likely the analog water level switch is failing. A pretty common problem in this machine. Before replace check the hose that goes to it for any blockage. If the hose is not plugged up the switch will need replaacing. Not a cheap part either but easy to replace. It is a small square block with wires and a hose going to it located under the top cover panel. For diagrams and illustrations enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com

What does F35 flashing mean? I own a Kenmmore elite front loading washer and besides it being broke down most of time it is pretty but doesn't work most of the time. This week it is flashing F35, I bought...


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.
