CustomerSusan from Hatfield PA

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!

Got sud message and then f35

At start of cycle would get SUD followed by F35. Did a lot of checking on internet and learned that problem is most likely pressure switch. Wasn't sure this was the case. Purchased switch, installed in less than 15 minutes and washer was fixed.

Switch is located in top part of washer in back right corner as you face front of washer. Switch has electrical connection and hose that runs to bottom.

Sud - followed by f39

I started getting this error; Browsing around the net, I came to know it is because of SWITCH-WL going bad. The part number is W10156252 and part name is also called as Switch, analog pressure sensor.

I removed the top cover of the washing machine, just need to remove two screws from back, top cover will come out. This switch is present on back right side of the machine. It was easy to remove the part from the machine; but make sure to see how the wire is connected to the part before you remove the wire from the switch. It is easy to connect the wire and put it back.

After changing this machine looks happy.

Sud code then f35 error code

Simply removed 3 screws from the back of the washer, twisted the part to the side to remove it from the slot it fit in. Removed the hose, them removed the wiring plug. Plugged in the wiring to the new switch, put the hose back, slid the switch in to the proper slot, twisted it into place, replaced screws and cut the washer on! BINGO!! Been working like a dream.

CustomerJOHN from BODFISH CA

Suds and f35 error

Starting getting these errors...but we had also been washing about 300 towels a week from our gym for about 3 months. I contacted an ex-sears repairman friend of ours for advise. He first recommended checking the pump filter basket. It was easy to get to by taking off the front panel. It did have about three hand wipes and other debris in it. Removing these items did cause the errors to occur less often, but they still did continue. We had our repair friend come over and go through the diagnostics checks as per the instruction sheet that was on the inside of the washer. It came down to being the pressure sensor. After replacing the sensor, the washer has worked flawlessly.

Receiving f35 error message after "sud"

After researching the issue on the internet, I found that this was a consistent problem with my washing machine model. Located Part Select, phoned them with the model of the machine and told them what I wanted. Part was received within 2 days. Flipped circuit breaker leading to washer off. Took top off of machine, located the pressure switch, had to twist to remove where it was attached to side of machine. Removed plug with wires, plugged into new switch & replaced to previous location. Machine runs like a brand new one (the longest time was trying to figure out how to get the switch unattached from the side of the machine). Disappointed with Whirlpool; couldn't say enough good things about Part Select!
