Hi,

This basically means the pressure switch is blocked or bad. The washer thinks the machine is sudsing because of this. Remove the 3 screws along the back and take the top off the washer. Looking from the front you should see the pressure switch to the left back. It will be round and have wires plus a small plastic tube attached.

Pull the plastic tube off and then blow down the tube. After this test the machine, if you are still having the same problem you will have to replace the pressure switch.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Whirlpool duet steam WFW9600TW00 code F35


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have an HE 5T Steam Front Loading Automatic Washer. It is showing Sud indication, nothing seems like happening and after few minutes it will show F35. What does it mean?


Hello again,
I found your manual. If you like to get it, go HERE. This is what it says about "SUDS" action:
"SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
Near the bottom of the troubleshooting page, it gives this for errors:
"F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
It doesn't specifically state what "F35" is, so I can only suggest these steps, and see if this solves your problem. If it doesn't I would be inclined to believe that there is a problem with a part, which would probably be serviceable by a tech from Sears or their partner service company.
Hope this clears it up for you.
Please rate and comment. Thank You
Joe

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

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.

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.

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.
