The world of home appliances is not without its challenges, and one such challenge is the ‘Whirlpool washer F35 error code’. This error code is a common issue faced by many Whirlpool washer users, and it can be quite frustrating when it pops up. But fear not, this comprehensive guide will help you understand and troubleshoot this error code effectively.
What Does The Washer F35 Error Code Mean?
The Whirlpool Washer F35 error code most commonly means the water level pressure switch has failed. Usually the code will appear during the washer’s cycle when the machine’s control unit cannot detect the correct water level in the drum. This is often due to a malfunctioning pressure switch or sensor. The pressure switch is responsible for detecting the water level in the washer’s drum. If it’s not working correctly, it can cause the washer to display the F35 error code.
How To Troubleshoot The Washer F35 Error Code
Now that we understand what the F35 error code means, let’s delve into how to troubleshoot this issue. The first step in troubleshooting the F35 error code is to check the pressure switch and the pressure hose. Make sure the hose is clear of any blockages or bends, as these can trigger the error.
Detach the hose from the water level pressure switch and blow through it to confirm it’s not obstructed. It’s also plausible that the pressure hose might have a leak, such as a hole, a worn area, or a cut. Additionally, the connection between the Analog Pressure Switch and the control might be insufficient. Start by checking for any holes or points where air might be escaping. Then, disconnect the connector from the control to the pressure switch and reconnect it.
Does the F35 error reappear? After performing these checks, remember to unplug the machine for a minimum of 5 minutes to allow the control to reset.
