Hi

Both of these fault codes point to a pressure switch issue. 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.
The error code F35 is commonly associated with the Sud error, which comes on within a minute of running any cycle. It means the Analog Pressure Sensor (small plastic electronic circuit) has gone bad. It costs about $99 to order from Sears although they are on backlog, or you can get it cheaper somewhere else. It could also mean the Air Pressure Tube from the Sensor has a hole or isn't connected.
Once you get the new Sensor, remove the 3 screws holding the top panel in place - they are on the backside on the very top. Remove the top and look at the far back upper right corner (looking from the front). There is a small crimson & black piece attached to the metal side wall with 5 blue wires & 1 black wire (pressure tube) attached to it. Make sure there are no leaks or disconnects...if not, then replace with new sensor - takes a little playing with to remove the old one & the wires. Replace lid, it will work like new.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

    Sounds correct, but i am a little confused about the un-plug and re-plug--and the michine works fine. Why would this happen (may-be clears the control panel) just strange it would start
    washing again.

My kenmore washer showes sud code


If it is similar to the Whirlpool duet,

Try using less soap (hi eff machine)
try using more fabric softner
to clear the occasional Sud warning, I run the machine on "quick wash" with no detergent/additive. gives it two more quick spin cycles in 30-35 minutes, usually clears it.

Error code F 35 and SUD code


Save yourself a lot of time and money and replace the analog pressure switch. This will solve your issues by taking care of both error codes at the same time.

Whirlpool Duet -Sud displays and washer stops


I;ve had the same problem (SUD on first fill) and found this most helpful for my WFW9600TW01 Duet washer

http://www.tellingmachine.com/post/Fixing-Sud-and-F35-errors-on-my-Whirlpool-WFW9600TW01-Washer.aspx

I duplicated his actions and it cleared up my SUD/F35 error. I think running the diagnostic test multiple times flushes the sensors/sensing lines to eliminate the problem.

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL DUET STEAM MODEL WFW 9600 TAOO. NO WASH CYCLES WILL START. I GET A FLASHING 'SUD' AND THEN CODE F 35. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS? WHAT PART NUMBER DO I NEED? WHERE CAN I FIND IT?...


SUD, usually caused by using the wrong type of soap. Your soap should have the letters "HE" on front of box/bottle. SUD can also be a bad drain pump, question is, does it still have water showing in tub?

F35, is a pressure sensor # W10156252, good luck finding it, as Whirlpool has problem keeping these things in stock. They list price at $112.82. Only takes about 20 minutes to change. Research sears.com, select PARTS Direct, enter model number, click on cabinet parts, find analog pressuer switch, see if they have in stock. Or, research the net for someone that does.

Take top of washer lid off, pressure switch is located on top right rear side wall of machine.

Good luck.

Washer stops during begginning of cycle with F 35 reading .


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.
