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.

    Hubbie cleaned out the trap (kids not emptying pockets of coins, pens), then blew out lines - did the job for a few weeks. The pressure sensor is error coding ordered one to install. Cold water wash is fine. Many glitches with this model. :0(

I have a Kenmore He5t steam washer. I got the F35 code again, so I automatically ordered and replace the pressure switch again. did not fix the problem. I have checked and cleaned the drain basket and


Unfortunately you spent money unnecessarily, and before making any additional errors; it would be best to have a trained technician with knowledge of the washer, service the system.

Hi After a year of using my Kenmore Elite HE5T washing machine, Model #110 47789701, serial #CSW2733428 I am getting an error F35 and Sub. Could you please let me know how to fix it? Thanks Barb


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.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F 35 means ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE- If this failure is displayed then there is any malfunction of the component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

1. Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
2. Check if the air trap is not blocked.
3. Check if the hose is not blocked


If it still not works then it is a problem with the water level pressure switch operation. There could be a blockage in the air dome or pressure switch hose. The air dome is located on the back of the tub on the left hand side. If the pressure switch hose and the air dome are clear of any blockages, then there is an issue with the water level pressure switch.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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 code appears, even after changing the steam chamber.


IT IS THE ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR NOT THE STEAM CHAMBER.
