Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

Pressure sensor manifold

Hi. I read your responses to the same problem that I am having. I have the back of my washer off and am not sure what the pressure sensor manifold looks like. Could you describe it so I can try to clean it out? If that doesn't work, I'll replace the pump. Thanks!

    Thanks for the info. The block was actually behind the easy-open clean-out in the front of the washer. The baffled black hosing behind there held the clog. Thanks again.

There is a thin tube running from the sensor switch down to the pump area, this is the pressure tube. Pull this out carefully after un-clipping from the top, blow thru this, the air shd go thru, or it is blocked. Check for breaks in tube. This tube checks your water level in machine. Refit tube carefully when block if any is cleared.

If you have a similar tube you can fit it above to the sensor switch and blow thru it, you should hear a click when u blow, if you do, your pressure switch is working fine.

Pl rate if helped.................

What's your problem?code F35 is coming up


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned. This problem could be caused by a failed analog pressure sensor, a problem with the air tube connection between the analog pressure sensor and the bottom of the washer tub or a failed central control unit.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.
A loose wiring connection or a broken wire harness could be causing this problem. You can remove the top panel of the washer by taking out the screws at the very back of the top panel. Pull the panel back slightly and then lift it up and off of the washer. Check the wire harness connected to the analog pressure sensor. Also check the air tube connected to this component. If these connections are okay, check the analog pressure sensor connection on the central control unit. THE IMAGE BELOW (click the link for zoom) shows the location of the central control unit on a similar model of washer and also provides a wiring diagram. The analog pressure sensor harness plugs into the central control unit on the PR8 connector. Make sure that this connection is secure. Look for damage to the wire harness.

If this dont solve it, I suggest replace the analog pressure sensor (shown in THIS LINK). Additionally, keep in mind that if your device is less than a year old, then this component is under warranty and should be replaced by a dealer technician.

My Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer -HE3t keeps stopping the cycle and the error F35 displays


Hi

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 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 inplace - 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.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

1. I need a service manual 2. how do you raise the water level of the machine


The water level sensor is a pressure switch and there is setting to which as the water gathers into the TUB the pressure exerted on the diaprgram within the pressure switch will correspond and determine the point of switching. So to increase the level within ( make sure that the switch is working as a damaged pressure switch will REQUIRE more water pressure to switch -- faulty diaphragm.)
To increase the level you can set the diaphragm controller to a higer setting-- this provision is seen on most pressure switches so that a higher pressure is needed to switch on thereby the water level goes higher.

F 35 error message


If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then 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

Check the drain pump filter for debris

Check the drain pump

If all the above checks out good . This would indicate that the pressure switch or also called the analog pressure sensor has failed. First you will need to remove the top lid. Usually 2 or 3 screws on the back and the top comes right off. The pressure switch has a clear hose and a clump of wires going to it. Then unplug the hose and blow thru it it should be clear. Check the hose for leaks or obstructions. Also in the back of the washer on the left hand side is a air dome this is where it gets it pressure reading from, make sure it is not obstructed. If all is clear the pressure switch will need to be replaced. Here is a link to help with accessing the pressure switch also if you need diagrams or illustrations of your particular model.

Washer stopped with error code F35 Whirlpool front loading automatic washer


Hi

Error code F 35 means ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE. There is any malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board. Please check whether the pressure hose is fixed firmly, and the air trap is not blocked. Make sure the hose is not plugged. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is a problem with the water level pressure switch operation. There could be 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 is clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch, you would need to replace it. Please post back in case of further assistance. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Ls there any way to clean or temporarily repair the analog pressure sensor on the kenmore elite washer with an F35 error? We have been without use of washer for 2 weeks and are told at least another 2...


Hi, 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 inplace - 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 and works like new!
