    Default 110.47789701 Kenmore Elite HE5t Error Code F35

    Model Number: 110.47789701
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 1-5 years

    Washer displays SUD and then will display F35. It seems the only way get it to work properly is to unplug the washer, then I run through the rinse and spin cycle first. I can then select a wash cycle. Why does F35 display? What does it mean? Can the code be corrected other than unplugging the machine? Thanks

    Hi,

    Its the water level switch(aka pressure switch) thats bad. Take the top panel off, should be 3 hex screws in the back that hold that panel on, then you will see it on the right side standing in front of your washer. Its orange and brown in color.

    Here's the water level switch for this model you can order here:
    Pressure Switch WPW10415587


    Make sure you ALWAYS use HE type brand detergent, non-HE detergent will cause this to break and throw the F35.

    Thanks Jake -

    I'll take your advice and take a look at the switch. Just wondering...what would cause the pressure switch to go bad so soon? The washer is not that old. Do I have too much water pressure going in? Thanks, Dave

    Using NON HE detergent is what kills that switch mainly, you said the SUDS error showed up first, and that indicates too much suds coming from NON HE detergent.

    Are you using NON HE detergent?

    Hi Jake

    Yes, we have always used HE detergent. That is why your question about the NON HE confused me. Thanks, Dave

    Ok Dave, then if you are using HE detergent, then it just went bad on its on, don't know why other than that.
