Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite Washer for over a year and is getting a F35 error code, then the SuD flashing. Cleaned out the soap container & inspected the inside (as stated on page 21 of "Washer Care"). I tried different cycles but it shows the same error codes. After 6-9 times of trying another clean cycle, it stops and always got error F35 with SuD and. The water seem to flow through the machine normally. Any suggestion on fixing this problem.

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.

    Hi Blueextc3221,

    I have recenlty had a Sears serviceman visit my home and advise that we require a new Analog Pressure Switch (W10156252) for the F35 and Suds Error

    When i called to schedule second visit i was told that we actually needed the following parts replaced:
    Control Board: W10156258 - Sears 252.99 (appliance zone: $165)
    Steamer: W10157910 – Sears 265.99 (appliance zone: $155)
    Micro Board: W10157911 - Sears 311.99 (appliance zone: $190)

    This makes NO sense at all from all of the discussions I have read as this should only be the pressure switch which is a $40-$70 part (sears $103.50) ???

    I feel like I am being completely RIPPED OFF by Sears for over $1000 (including initial visit costs) when i purchased the washer for $1300 just over 12 months ago???

    Any advise/feedback would be greatly appreciated !!

    Thanks!!

    In addition to Blueextc3221's solution, and before replacing the pressure switch, do the following:
    - remove the pressure switch
    - remove the pressure switch cover
    - remove the small 1 inch hose under the cover and blow out all soap and water in the hose and fittings.
    - put it back together and pray. After trying everything else this worked for me.

Kenmore elite 5t steam f35 and sud problem


The F35 error code indicates a problem with the analog pressure sensor, air hose or air trap. If the hose and trap are good you will need to replace the pressure sensor

The "Sud" error code indicates too much or the wrong kind of laundry soap was used. Be sure to use only HE (high efficiency) detergent on this model of washer.

Please see the links provided below for access instructions & other troubleshooting tips covering the error codes displayed:

That is a water level sensor, if it is still in warranty contact the manufacturer. If not look for the sensor and check for loose wires, if not loose wires replace the sensor.

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.

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 & SuD error codes on Kenmore Elite Washer


F35 has to do with the pressure switch which is located under the top panel on the back right. It will have a little black hose hooked to it. This happens when SUDS or detergent somehow gets up into it and usually locks unit out. Only solution is to replace pressure switch. You can find the tech sheet behind the bottom front panel usually tape to the back side of that panel or taped to the bottom right side inside unit. Hope this helps
