Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I put a smal load in my washer on the delicate cycle, pressed and held start button, door locked, water started and I saw the fluids enter the drum, then got F35 error after.
Hi, Both of these fault codes 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. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to comment again, Good luck.

My washer is just over a year old and I got the same error F35....wash load cycle stopped and doors locked. I had to schedule Sears service to come in....at $80 only to find out the pressure switch has to be replaced and the hose. All together it will cost us $500 for a washer that is 1 year old. I wish I never left my Whirlpool Duet at our old house. I can't believe we have to pay practically 33% of the cost for repair a year later. I would not recommend this washer to anyone based on that. My husband is contacting Sears to complain - if there is a known issue, then they should recall it and pay for the fix.

What does the pressure switch look like?

Just wanted to say that searching for a pressure switch is about impossible. You will find it under a water level switch.

This machine is a farce! I cannot believe I wasted over 2,000 on this machine. I wish I had my " Real washing machine back!" Sears can have this back......

I hate my machine. Just over a year old, F35 failure code. Wish I still had my reliable Maytag. And this failure is on a machine that replaced the FIRST one of these **** I bought. So I've had not one, but TWO units fail within 15 months of purchase! Anyone else have this miserable experience? What a total sham these machines are. Sears is less than supportive of their "flagship" product name.
