I tried to update the current post, seems I do not have permission to add to it :(

http://applianceguru.com/view_topic.php?id=21773&forum_id=2

I have a Whirlpool duet steam washer WFW9550W which keeps displaying: Error code F35 on. Seems others have had the same problem and the recommended fix is to replace the water level switch (or analog water level control) at a cost of $140. Want to know if other people have had success by replacing this switch before I order it. Machine is only 18 months old.

Are these switches easy to install and do they come with an instruction diagram?

3 screws to take the top off. One small hose and wire harness connector.

Model Number is W9500TC01.....similar to what I quoted before but not the same. Does that make a difference to the part that I will need. The washer worked again for about 4 washes and now has stuck on F35 after the suds. Laundry is piling up so need a solution fast

Are you using only HE detergent? Using non-HE detergent in these washers will cause all kinda problems, including taking out the water level switch.

reg is possiblly the most helpful person i know so give him a break.
you really do need a valid model # to do anything with the parts look-up on appliances and neither of the #'s you have provided are valid.
using my stunning sense of extrapolation ,i have determined that your model most likely is WFW9500tc01, which uses the part nick and the samurai have tried to direct you to.
the analog pressure is out of stock at repairclinic and at sears, so you can draw your own conclusion about that.
no way i know to test it but as far as i have seen in the field F35= CLICK


Wow, missed your recent post...anyhoo...the song remains the same

Just thought I'd update to let you know replacing this part worked. I bought the part at RepairClinic just like the Samurai said. I had the part in two days-- AWESOME! Fitted it in 2 seconds and have a working washer again.

Here's the part I bought:

Thanks again, guys, lots of beer money on the way! :):):)
