Question about Washing Machines
If you blow into the pressure sensor it must click,but that is not enough to say that the sensor is defective. F35 means that the pressure switch is clogged or bad (water level error).
The pressure switch is difficult to test, and it is often replaced without testing (I know...it is $50)
After blowing in the hose, clean the hose and set it back in place. If you still get F35 after re-applying power and restarting, replace the pressure switch.
Here diagrams for a couple of models using the same pressure switch:

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. See the image below. 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 bubles. 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 W10156252 is most likely the problem and will need to be replaced.
