The washer kept giving a 'suds' error or an F35 error and would not progress through any of the wash cycles. It would partially fill with water, just enough to dampen some of the clothes, and then show the error message.

I removed the 3 screws toward the top of the back of the washer to remove the top. After that, I located the water pressure level switch, slid it out of the slot into which it is secured, removed the narrow black tubing from the bottom of it, and draped the newly-unattached end of the tube so that it would be easy to find. Then I removed the set of wires and discarded the old switch.

Next I attached the wires to the new switch, attached the black tubing and put the switch back into the slot. I tested the washer and it worked. Next, I put the top back on using the 3 screws. That was it!
