Whirlpool Duet Steam Washer - WFW9600TW0 - F35 Error Also getting SUDS error every so often...

14 posts in this topic

Back in August '08 someone posted a message about getting an F35 and SUDS error on a Whirlpool frontload washer. (20994-whirlpool-duet-steam-washer-wfw9600tw0-f35-error.) I'm not able to post to that message but since I have the exact same situation I'm wondering how difficult it would be for a regular joe like me to try to switch out this analog pressure sensor switch in my Duet Steam front-load washer. How would I go about doing this once I have the right part? Appliance repair places I've called around in the Atlanta area all want to charge a hefty trip/diagnostic charge and/or go down the road of an expensive control board replacement.

Many thanks!

Switching out the old part is 1 can of beer on the 'Suds-O Meter ' :thumbsup: ............... The hard parts is getting the part...new part number is W10249845..out of stock across the country.......For the "suds", I would back off on the amount of detergent....give that a try.............P.S. part is located at the right /rear of the unit, just remove the three screws at the back of the lid/top.......

Thanks for the excellent response.....Apparently there's a new part number for the pressure sensor switch W10415587 and indeed the part is unavailable; on backorder until the end of June. If anyone can help me locate this part (new), I would be most grateful. Hawling the laundry of the the local laundromat each week has lost its luster!:blush:

On this unit I had been getting the f35 abd sud error codes I replaced the pressure switch but to no avail then I replaced cc board and now I get f32 error code and unit just keeps filling and not stopping What is the difference between f35 and f32 The staemer checks out okay YES ON DISPLAY I sent a message to my Samaie and was told it has to be the board but maybe I am missing something here any help would really appreciated  On all other sites every one says it is the pressure switch and some say replace board there has got to be a way to test this parts or be able to pin point the problem with out having to spend all this money guessing what the problem is. No customer would want a tech to come repair their unit if you are going to be guessing what part you need . Some one out there has got to have some input to this situation HELP thanks

F32 PRESSURE SWITCH FAILURE
If there is no electrical supply to the Pressure Switch from the CCU or if the Pressure Switch contacts are worn out,

then a Pressure Switch Failure is displayed.
Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check Pressure Switch harness for continuity.
2. Check Pressure Switch and run a Diagnostic Test.

 

F35 ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE
If this failure is displayed, the Central Control Unit has detected a malfunction of the analog pressure sensor.
Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly and without holes or damage.
2. Make sure that the airtrap is not blocked.
3. Make sure that the hose is not blocked and no water is inside.
