Hi i'll be glad to help you. i dont know what youve already tried, but the f35 an suds code are both caused by the pressure switch, do you know if that has been replaced?

The pressure switch was not replaced, washer is less than 2 years old.<br />I opened pump in the front of washer it was full of water, after water drained I closed the pump and started washer on normal cycle, it works. I made second load and problem shows again, so I open the pump to drain water and washer was working again. Is it pressure switch.<br />
Expert:  J1204 replied 6 years ago.
Yes the f35 code is a ressure switch failure code, the suds is the pressure switch thinking there is excessive suds in the unit. The Kenmores and Whirlpool washer had a lot of problems with these after whirlpool(who also make the kenmore machine) changed the design of the pressure switch about 2-2 1/2 years ago, its easy to replace, but is kind of expensive for such a small part(due in part to the computer board inside the switch) http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11047781701/0583/0153200/K1004094/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= here is a link that shows the part and the placement of it, its #38 on the diagram
