You have a bad analog pressure switch,it's mounted right under the top panel on the right side and two thirds of the way back it has a black rubber tube running to it,you can find it at Sears but you'll need your full model number.

Kenmore Elite He5t front load washer. SUD shows for a few minutes then up comes error code F35. Then all controls are locked out. Unplugging machine and allowing reboot fixes problem for a wash load or...


Hi,

Remove the lower front panel and unscrew the cap from the pump and drain the water and clean the filter and then run it a few times with no soap at all an dit should clear the system ,,, have some towels handy when you remove the filter.

If the problem remains unsolved, then you need to replace the pressure switch.

Explanation

Sud" SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
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.

All possible reasons

  • 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 connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU
As i mentioned, on most occasions, this is due to faulty pressure switch.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Kenmore Elite he5t steam washer gets F35 error code


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.

Sud and f35 error in my kenmore elite h5 steam washer. The washer do not wash the cloth and flash F35.


I got the f35 and suds code repeatedly and my clothes weren't washed, I ordered from Sears the analog pressure switch that regulates the water coming into the washer and the codes went away, the part is esitmately $125.00 including shipping but you have to order from the Sears parts department.If you print a diagram of the washer it is #38 in the diagram and is easy to replace. You can install it yourself and as a female I did not call service to do it.

HE5t Steam shows SUD then f35. I have unplugged it. Plugged it back in; started a rinse only cycle and still it show this error. The washer is empty. I check the sensor on the back right hand area that I...


SUD means there are too many soap suds in the washer. Are you using a front load approved detergent? Are you using the correct amount? or slightly less is better.

My Kenmore Elite HE5t washer flashes SUD continually, then goes to F35 mode and shuts off. Help!


Sometimes the SUDS/F35 is because of TOO MUCH detergent. To clear you have to set the cycle on rinse and then keep pouring cups of water into the detergent container as the cycle is going. You might have to do this a few times because if the SUDS message comes up the water flow will stop. Just unplug and try again. Also when the detergent container is finally clear you will see the little rotators gears move around when the cycle starts.

F35 Message on Brand New Washer


suds is determined using the level sw located on top right rear side. remove top cover to see. most letter codes do convert to a f code. most common reason for suds error is use of standard detergent or too much detergent. running a empty load of fabric softener can clean the system. or rinse/spin with nothing. other common problem is this is a whirlpool product.
