Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Duet Steam front loading automatic washer that is only 15 months old and is continuing to state F35. It is just me and my husband so I do not use it on a daily basis. I have always used HE detergents along with downy. What seems to be the problem? Of course after 12 months the warranty is up. What can I do on my own to fix this problem? I would be very grateful for tips.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The F35 failure is displayed if the analog pressure switch has a calibration error.

There are two things you can check for this problem if you're comfortable with do-it-yourself.

Remove the washer top to access the pressure switch on the right hand side of the cabinet near the top. You'll want to check if the pressure hose is fixed correctly and not loose. Check if the Air trap is not blocked. You can do this by removing the hose and blowing in it towards the tub. It should blow freely and you might even hear bubbles. If you can't blow or it's hard to blow then most likely the hose is kinked or blocked.

If the hose is not blocked or kinked then the pressure switch is most likely the problem and will need to be replaced.

Whirlpool duet steam WFW9600TW00 code F35

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.

Whirlpool Duet -Sud displays and washer stops

I;ve had the same problem (SUD on first fill) and found this most helpful for my WFW9600TW01 Duet washer

I duplicated his actions and it cleared up my SUD/F35 error. I think running the diagnostic test multiple times flushes the sensors/sensing lines to eliminate the problem.

Suds error then F35 at the beginning of the was cycle

I too have a Whirlpool Duet Steam Washer that is just 13 months old and had this same problem. If you have searched the internet about this you have probably noticed that there are quite a few people out there with the same problem. It is the analog pressure sensor switch. I was lucky enough to find one that I received last Friday. It is an easy fix if you're not afraid to attempt it yourself.....the problem you will probably have is finding the part. I searched several parts stores and everyone had them on a 3 to 4 week backorder, but I got lucky and found ONE in stock. If you remove the top of the washer by removing the 3 screws that hold it on in the back and sliding it off, you can see the pressure switch on the right/rear side of the washer. To remove the switch you have to remove the wires that plug into the switch and then turn the switch and pop it out of the side...the replacement just snaps back in the same way. My husband replaced the switch in probably less than 5 minutes and my washer is back up and running. Good luck finding the part (W10156252). I did write a letter to Whirlpool stating that this seems to be an on-going problem with these washers and that if they cannot reimburse the consumer in some way, the least they could do is make this part more readily accessible. Good luck.

F35 and Suds error on Kenmore Elite HE5t

I 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 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.
