Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F 35 means Analog Pressure Sensor Failure- which means that there is a malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

1. Check that the pressure hose is fixed correctly.
2. Check that the air trap is not blocked.
3. Check that the hose is not blocked


If still the issue is not resolved then it is an issue with the water level pressure switch operation and there is a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome are clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Elite he5t washer,suds,then f35,no lights over soil level push button. I try start with only water,but the same problem.This will be problem with the sensor?Why I dont have any lights under soil level...


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.

F35


Code 35 if a pressure switch problem. If you remove the top panel the switch is located at the back right corner if looking from front to back. It a brown color usually. Check the hose from the tub to the switch and the wire connections if they are ok then replace the switch. Make sure to unplug the machine before removing the top

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.
