Hi,

This point to a pressure switch issue. 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 diong this, you will likely need 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!!

HOW TO FIX A F 35 ERROR CODE


The F35 error code indicates an analog pressure sensor error. The analog pressure sensor is the component that detects water level in the washer tub. This error can usually be cleared but it will occur again if the main control board still detects a problem with the signal from the analog pressure sensor. This error code can be caused by a problem with the air pressure tube between the bottom of the washer tub and the analog pressure sensor. If you are able to unplug the washer and check this air pressure tube, you may be able to resolve this problem. The analog pressure sensor can be accessed by pulling off the top panel of your washer. Remove the screws at the very back of the top panel and then pull it back slightly and then up and off of the washer. The analog pressure sensor is Key 38 in the first image below. With the washer unplugged, check the connection of the air pressure tube to this component. Check the entire air tube down to its connection to the bottom of the washer tub. You will likely need to remove the back panel of the washer to check the entire air pressure tube. If you find a kink, tear, hose or loose connection in the air pressure tube, then this is the likely cause of your F35 error code. If the air pressure tube appears to be okay, then you will likely need to replace the analog pressure sensor. If the problem still exists after replacing this component, then the main electronic control board for the washer will need to be replaced. If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check these components, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.

Kenmore elite he 3t model# 110 46747801 blinking sud and then f35


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The F35 error code (can also be associated to the "Sd" or suds error) on most not all ...Whirlpool built front load washers indicates the control has detected an analog pressure sensor (also commonly known as a wter pressure switch) error.

Whether the sensor is faulty or not remains to be seen, here's what to check first.

**Unplug the washer from the wall before servicing...safety first**

This error "F35", can be caused by the air pressure tube being blocked or kinked between the bottom of the washer tub and the analog pressure sensor, examine by removing the top and back panels and inspect the hose and dome, i.e.

macmarkus_366.jpg
macmarkus_367.jpg
If you find a blockage, kink, cut/torn hose or loose connection in tube, then this is the likely cause the error. If it however appears okay, then you will likely need to replace the analog pressure sensor, i.e.

macmarkus_368.jpg

As I alluded to though, make sure the hose is clear and not cut and the air-dome at the tub isn't plugged and if not you'll have to replace the switch.

Let me know how you make out and I'll help further in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My washer shows on the display F35, and now I'm getting sud. What must I do to fix this error.


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...

Error code F35


The F35 indicates that the main control board detects a problem with the analog pressure sensor (water level pressure switch) in the washer. This component senses and controls water level in the washer. This failure could be caused by a pinched or broken air hose between the air trap at the bottom of the washer tub and the analog pressure sensor. It can also be caused by a clogged air trap or a failed analog pressure sensor. If you are able to unplug the washer and pull off the top panel, you can check for the probable cause of this failure.

To remove the top panel, remove the screws on the very back of the panel that secure it to the washer cabinet. Pull the top panel back slightly and then and off of the washer. It is on the side wall just behind the expansion control board. You can check the air pressure hose connection and the wire harness connection on this component.

This component costs around $99.This information was based on the general description of the washer model that you provided (Kenmore Elite front load washer). There are several different models of this washer. I am not aware of other uses of the F35 code on the various models. If you intend to diagnose and repair this problem yourself, I recommend resubmitting your question with the full model number of your Kenmore washer so that we can verify this technical information using your model number.
