Hi, Thank you for asking this question and allow me to answer it this way.

The leak could be coming from the grey seal on the front panel that seals the door to the front panel. You might check the seal of the door by pressing in on the bottom of the door and see if that stops the leak. If not check the drain holes in the seal to be sure there is not any residue clogging the holes up.
There could be a hole in the boot but it could have just overflowed over the front of the boot.
I recommend you clean the boot and see if the leak goes away. The brownish green crud is from the interior of the washer and it will need to be cleaned as well.
Here are the boot cleaning instructions :
Remove all clothes from the drum of the front-loader. Leave the door open.
Open a window in the laundry room to provide some air circulation because you are using bleach. Wear cleaning gloves to protect your hands from the diluted chlorine bleach.
Fill a water bucket with 1 gallon of warm water from a faucet in the laundry room sink, or the kitchen or bathroom sink. Measure and pour 3/4 cup of chlorine bleach into the bucket. Stir the bleach solution with a white rag or towel. Avoid using a colored or decorative towel because the bleach may cause fading or damage to the fabric.
Wipe the entire seal area with the bleach-soaked rag. You may have to gently fold back or lift the seal to reach deeper crevices. Avoid wiping so hard that you break or damage the seal.
Leave the door open for five minutes. This gives the bleach solution enough time to kill the mold organisms, liberate mildew stains and destroy odors.


I hope this answer is useful and that it helps you correct the problem with your appliance.
Thank you for using ManageMyLife.

Thank you for providing the model number. A F35 error indicates the Central Control Unit has detected a malfunction of the analog pressure sensor. I see you have replaced the pressure switch with no result. I understand how disappointing this is. I have added and repeated some steps below. I would recommend trying these steps before checking the electronics.

First disconnect power to the washer for 30 seconds, then reconnect power. Open and close the washer door. Try running a cycle. Does the SUD or F35 return on the display? If so, the repeat the troubleshooting below. Troubleshooting involves the following checks.

  • Verify pressure hose is fixed correctly and has no holes or damage.

  • Verify air trap is not blocked.

  • Verify hose is not blocked.

Even though you have checked these items, I would recommend running a careful check one more time. If you find a kink, tear, hose or loose connection in the air pressure tube, then this is the likely cause of your F35 error code. Make sure you verify the air trap and the tube are clear. See image below. You might use a air compressor to blow out the tube if you have one. If these check good and since you changed the analog pressure switch, the next possibility is a malfunctioning electronic control board or the wiring harness to the control board may be loose or defective. See second image.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

If the control unit or wiring harness does need to be replaced, you can order a new one here; Sears Home Services .

If you decide you would like a technician to diagnose and repair any electrical components, you can schedule a Sears technician here: Sears Home Services .

I hope this helps to clear these codes. If further assistance is needed, please reply. Thank you for using Manage My LIfe.
