My problem
receiving F02 code and SUDS code.

My Repair & Advice:

Was receiving F02 and SUDS error code.the pump had not pumped the water out in a predetermined amount of time. (even though it had). The SUDS error would immediately come on even without soap. Figured it must be the sensor giving bad information to the control panel. Changed the pressure switch and that fixed the problem. Has been running over a month with no problems. First, you may want to clean the pump filter out first. The pump filter is accessed by removing the 3 screws on the front lower panel of the washer. You will see a plastic handle front and center when you remove the panel. Twist the handle and pull to remove. Have plenty of towels or wet/dry vac ready as some water will flow out. Remove debris. Replace panel and run washer cycle again to see if problem is resolved. Also check drain hose to make sure it isn't stopped up. If not, it may be the pump or pressure switch. My pump was removing the water in a reasonable amount of time so i figured it was the water level pressure switch. To replace the switch remove the 3 nuts at the top and back of the washer. The top should slide right out by pulling it towards the back of the the washer. the pressure switch is at the top back right corner of the washer, close to where the drain hose comes through the back of the washer. Use the flat head screwdriver or needle nose pliers to push in the plastic tab so as to disengage the plastic catch. Replace with new part. Replace panel cover.

My problem
Was getting error code F35

My Repair & Advice:

I had tried the fixes recommended on several forums (cleaning out the trap under the drum and checking behind the big rubber gasket) with no real help. The fault would go away then come back so I bit the bullet and ordered the pressure sensor which is located on the top right back corner of the washer. Take the top off and after disconnecting the line, rotate the sensor to the side to remove it from the wall of the dryer. It's on there pretty tight but it's not screwed on or anything so don't worry about thinking that you'll break it. Reconnect the hose to the new one and just snap it back in. Not hard at all.

My problem
suds error code before cycle even begins

My Repair & Advice:

All i did was use the recommended repair tips, advice and diagnosis from the parts dr. web-site.  I ordered the recommended part and recieved it the next day using standard delivery and was finished with the repair within 15 to 20 minutes.  I live in a rural area so all the repair shops were pretty far away.so by using the recommendations from the parts dr. site and doing the repair myself i saved between at least $200.00 and $250.00 not including the price of the part which by the way was the lowest on the web for a OEM part. Thanks parts dr.!
