SOURCE: f02 error on my kenmore elite H3
FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels, a good big plastic bag or a wet vac to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

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.

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.

Very easy to replace the sensor...hard to swallow that the $.05 of plastic that cost over $100 plus shipping. I did google sears parts discount code and found a free one that knocked $10 off the total. I also complained @ CPSC's Hotline at (800) 638-2772. It is nothing in my operation that made this part malfunction, the fact that Sears Parts had it backordered and no official parts dealers within 100 miles had the part on hand ought to tell them that this should be recalled! We are 4 loads in and praying that it keeps working, after spending over $100 at the laundry mat for our family of 6 I am still fuming that I stayed with Kenmore (last washer lasted over a decade) and they suckered me into a $2,000 investment in their washer/dryer system. I did take the front bottom panel off and clean the filter, pretty nasty but easy to do as well. Thanks for the help, I was determined not to pay Sears anymore than I had to.

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.
