Hi, we also got the SUDS error followed by F35 many times. I replaced the analog water level switch, Wirlpool part number W10156252, and the problem went away. The part is located against the back right corner of the top of the washer after removing the top cover. The part cost $62.99 + $12.95 express shipping from ApplianceZone.net. I have the Kenmore HE3t Steam Washer, model number 110.46752 700 front loader. I was able to run about 6 loads of laundry by unplugging the washer, waiting about 5 minutes, the re-plugging and re-starting the washer. Thereafter, the problem became permanent. I always used HE detergent. The washer was purchased new in December 2007, and the I made the repair in September 2009. I spent about $1300 for the Kenmore H3t Steam Washer, and I am disappointed that it required repair after less than 2 years. My mothers old Maytag washer lasted more than 15 years, and was not susceptible to soap SUDS.

No solution but the new part needed w10312527 that replaces part: w10156252 is back ordered till Nov. 19. One of the 10 service/parts people I spoke to said he wondered why this model hadn't been recalled yet since he has had so many service calls with this problem.

    Yes, they should recall. Anyone know if they are or if not we should be pressing this issue. I am having this problem and the part is OUT OF STOCK until 7/11. I have not had to go to a laundry mat in 25 years until I bought this Kenmore He5t washer.

    I am also having a problem with this "imfamous" F35 and SUD problem...Sears told me the part is backordered until July 11, 2011....My washer is under 2 years old...This is a disgrace that Sears/Kenmore/Whirlpool should be taking care of by recalling or replacing these HE washing machines. Years ago a $300 washer would last 15 years without a problem. Great technology and great consumer support Sears!!! I hope you go out of business as fast as your washers do!!

I just heard from my case manager - not quite what I expected at all! They will give me 30% off of a new washer or 50% off the part installed. I did not have the extended warranty (why when my last washer an Amana lasted 20 years and no repairs). Sure gives you that warm fuzzy feeling for sears,, eh? Sorry that you have been out of a washer for 2 1/2 months due to so many people needing this part, but there is not a recall and I really am sorry that you have to spend $20-25.00 a week on laundry. Oh, and they will keep an eye out for the part for me. I guess they do not think that is what I have been trying to do!!

    I have the kenmore ht5 washing machine for about 3 years. The bellow had ripped twice and replaced, $129 plus shipping each time. The water level sensor (F-35 and SUD) gone bad even though I have used HE Tide detergent, that another $109 plus shipping. Now Im expecting the water pump to go next. It started to make a grinding before it is kicked on. That $79 last checked. I am nervously praying that it will last, for how long? The old basic washers without all those new features that my brother and I have (had) for over 20 years still work. Regretfully I gave mine away and bought this POS (kenmore elite HE5t) steam washer. I hope everyone read this carefully. All those repairs was done myself, apprpx. $500 saved but not headache.

Hi After a year of using my Kenmore Elite HE5T washing machine, Model #110 47789701, serial #CSW2733428 I am getting an error F35 and Sub. Could you please let me know how to fix it? Thanks Barb


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.

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.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE5t and the code F26 keeps coming up Please let me know what that is My acct is under the phone719-465-3853


The door switch sensor button may be sticking in the closed (pushed in) position. Try to get it to spring back out. Otherwise the washer computer "thinks" that the door has not been opened for three cycles (F26).
