The Central Control Unit detected a fault in the analog pressure switch. "Sud" may display 4 minutes prior to F35. Run a cycle without using detergent to clear possible sud lock condition. The first thing to check is the pump filter located behind the bottom panel. Remove the screws attaching the bottom of the bottom panel then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller with your finger and turn it manually to check it for restrictions and damage.

The next thing to check is the analog pressure switch assembly. Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine then slide the panel backward and off the cabinet top. The analog pressure switch on the top right rear of the cabinet with a clear hose attached to it. Check the hose for clogs and kinks then detach and blow air forcefully down through it to clear for any obstruction. Also blow air into the pressure switch itself to release possible contact bonding.

I have a Kenmore smart wash quiet pack 9 HE5t and when I try to turn it on it make a noise but won't turn on


Please check the motor belt , the drain pump and the inlet valve. If the noise seems to come from any of these it is possible that it trips off the circuit due to a fault and so must be confirmed.
You can remove the connection to the seperate items to confirm if the panel switches on.

My Kenmore Elite HE 5T Steam Front Loading Washer keeps flashing the code F35. What does this mean? It is not in the manual.


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.

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.

F35 code appears, even after changing the steam chamber.


IT IS THE ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR NOT THE STEAM CHAMBER.
