Question about Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer
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.

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!!

Tips for a great answer:
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.
