Kenmore elite 5t steam f35 and sud problem


The F35 error code indicates a problem with the analog pressure sensor, air hose or air trap. If the hose and trap are good you will need to replace the pressure sensor

The "Sud" error code indicates too much or the wrong kind of laundry soap was used. Be sure to use only HE (high efficiency) detergent on this model of washer.

Please see the links provided below for access instructions & other troubleshooting tips covering the error codes displayed:

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.

Error code "SUD"


SUD error means there is to much soap being added, the washer will shut down, if it cents to much soap

Is not draining suds or F on screen


Suds is a warning that you are not using He "high efficiency" detergent, or too much soap, the F code should be followed by a number, more than likely your problem will be solved if you fill and drain the machine a couple times with no soap and use very little He soap when washing (3 tablespoons).

Spinning and draining does not work, F error or sometimes Sud


Sud means you using to much soap and the f code means soap is locking the drain pump up and wont allow unit to drain and spin.

Washer flashing F then went to SUD


Drop the drain hose so that it is lower than the drain and let all the water run out of the machine. Open the door and remove all washing. Let machine go through rinse cycle with some milk mixed in with the water, (pour the milk into the soap container, about one cup) and make sure there are no soap suds left in the machine. Check that you are using washing powder which is recommended for front loaders.
