    I have had the same problem and searched the web for a solution. I came across this website, followed the steps suggested by eagle 338, opened up the machine (turned it upside down for easy access) - not sure if this was the right thing to do ! Anyway I opened up the clips and took out the pump and found half a child's sock and a 50p piece in the pump ! I have now removed the offending items and reinstated the pump. The machine now works again and so far no problem. Tomorrow not only will I not have to buy a new machine (who's going to pay £100 for an engineer to come out ?) but I've got 50p for a chocolate bar !

    Many thanks to eagle 338

    I've got to the back of the machine. Does the 'small panel' at the bottom have a couple of screws securing it? This seems to come off easily and exposes the belt etc. Where is the pump?

An F-05 error message means that the pressure switch is jammed on empty or a problem with pump.

The fault is associated with drain out (pump blocked or restricted in some way).

Small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull of the two pipes (Plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and unclip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned.

The solution listed above that its pump clogged up and pressure switch has tripped was correct for f-05! However first thing you should do is remove front strip at the bottom of the washing machine which reveals an access cap for the pump, took 30 seconds to clean out, didnt even need to take the back of at all!

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF740. This does have brushes. Tilt the washing machine backwards & look underneath. The brushes can be seen on the motor housing, they are secured by two screws each.

WF740 Hotpoint washing machine with bad smell from drum. Tried 95 degree wash but still smells. Door seal slightly blackened but I think smell is from drum too. Any help?

Wash it out with a strong solution of washing soda placed into the drum before you fill the machine


Run the machine empty through a full hot cycle then run the soda one

The first will soften the deposits and the second should help kill the bacteria that is causing the smell.

Reducing the load so that there is more agitation helps as well
