The F35 indicates that the main control board detects a problem with the analog pressure sensor (water level pressure switch) in the washer. This component senses and controls water level in the washer. This failure could be caused by a pinched or broken air hose between the air trap at the bottom of the washer tub and the analog pressure sensor. It can also be caused by a clogged air trap or a failed analog pressure sensor. If you are able to unplug the washer and pull off the top panel, you can check for the probable cause of this failure.

To remove the top panel, remove the screws on the very back of the panel that secure it to the washer cabinet. Pull the top panel back slightly and then and off of the washer. It is on the side wall just behind the expansion control board. You can check the air pressure hose connection and the wire harness connection on this component.

This component costs around $99.This information was based on the general description of the washer model that you provided (Kenmore Elite front load washer). There are several different models of this washer.

The following link explains the error in more detail and how to correct:

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code can be generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

What does 5ud mean 10 minutes from finishing 5 Ud displayed can't open door?

The SUD (not 5UD) code is displayed when excess foam is detected (possibly because excessive detergent is being used). If your machine does not cure itself, you may have to run an "Eco drum clean" cycle (if your machine has it) or a 90 degree cotton cycle with no detergent and no load.

What does F35 code mean and what to do?

  • Run an empty cycle without using any detergent. Often the fault code displays when too much detergent is used and the detergent sits in the drainage system. A cycle without any detergent is often enough to clear out the buildup.
  • 2 Pull the drain hose out of the standpipe mounted to the wall behind the washing machine. Complete a visual inspection of the hose for any clogs. If you see any, remove the screw that holds the hose clamp onto the discharge pump and then force water through the drain hose with pressurized water from a garden hose. Reattach the hose and then run an empty cycle to see if the code goes away.

    Washer code 5ud

    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    Sud error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't

    The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

    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.

    I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

    Hope helps.

    Error code f35

    F35 (on some models)


    If this failure is displayed, there is any malfunction of the steamer
    component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

    Possible Causes/Procedure
    Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
    Check if the airtrap is not blocked.
    Check if the hose is not blocked.

    Make sure you are ONLY using HE SOAP!
    Correct usage amounts are as follows:

    Regular HE SOAP = 2 Tablespoons
    2X HE SOAP = 1 Tablespoon
    3X HE SOAP = 1 Teaspoon

    The information on the soap usage comes directly from Whirlpool Tech Line.


    If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain
    or spin phases, the washer will fi ll 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes
    the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try
    to spin or drain again.

    Possible Causes/Procedure

    If too much detergent was used:
    Run through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
    Run 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.
    Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch,
    and Central Control Unit (CCU).
    Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
    Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    Check drain pump.
    Check the pressure switch.
    Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

    Stopped on the rinse cycle an give the 5 ud message.

    The Sud (5ud) error code indicates a suds lock. This is normally caused by excessive detergent causing too much suds. It can also be caused by not using HE (High Efficiency) detergent. Overloading the washer can also cause this problem. Try running a cycle with no clothes and no detergent added. See if suds emerge in the washer even though no detergent was added.

    Code F35 on Kenmore Elite HE5t front loader washer.

    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.
