Kenmore Elite HE5t Steam Washer 110.47781701

6 posts in this topic

My friend and his wife have been working for several years to remodel a house. They purchased a Kenmore washer and dryer about 20 months ago but did not plug them in until recently. On their first load, they got the F35 code. They went back to Sears and they were told that Sears would be happy to send out a repair man but it would be $100 for coming out. They knew that I had recently had a problem with my Whirlpool machine and asked for my help. They are using HE detergent. We ran the diagnostic test several times and kept getting the F35 code. We removed the tubing and checked for any obstructions by blowing through it. Once we reinstalled the tubing, we ran the diagnostic test and got no error codes. I told them to run a small load to see if the problem was fixed. They called tonight and said on the first load, the code came back. What should I try next? Is it a bad ressure switch? If so, where do I purchase one since repairclinic.com no loger has them? Why would removing and reinstalling the tube allow the machine to complete the diagnostic test when it did not complete before?

Thanks

It was stored in the house. I thought of critters, but I saw no evidence of any inside the machine.

I am having no problem getting this part locally...I keep it on the truck and do at least 3-4 a month for this exact issue...

Is everyone certain it is the pressure switch? How much do they cost?

replaced many for f-35. for the most part pressure switch has taken care of the error code. we have had a couple where the f-35 just won't clear from the control. customer has run 4-5 loads between errorcode shut down.
