Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My Kenmore Elite he5t steam washer is about 2yrs old. I am now consistently getting either "Sud" code or F35. Is there a part for the F35 that needs to be replaced? If yes, could you let me know as well as the part number for it?
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.

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.
