Machine operates for 5 minutes, and then switches to the first light, that keeps flashing. tried cleaning filters, adding more salt, checked to see if there are any blockages. to no avail. can anyone help
I've just had this issue and managed to get it working again.
The problem is more than likely water sat in the bottom of the machine. Unload and unplug your machine. Tip it backwards by about 45 degrees, and you should notice about 1/2 pint of water leaking out of the back on to the floor (make sure you have some old towels handy).
After doing this my machine started to work again.

Switch the machine off, AND pull the plug, wait 5 minutes (to be sure) and turn it on. Then turn it off again, now the infuser should return to it's normal position where you can take it out.
If the descale button is still flashing, try descaling again. Was the procedure interupted before? That would be a reason the light keeps flashing.
If you removed the filter to clean it, while the unit was ON, that may be the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from wall outlet. Leave unplugged for 15 minutes. Remove and replace the filter. After 15 minutes has elapsed, plug the unit into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The unit should have reset itself and reverted back to the original factory default settings. In which case, you can change the settings to what you desire.
Just remember to always turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, when removing the filter to clean and replace it.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
The SUD display could mean several things. A faulty drain pump, excessive detergent, excessive suds, or an extra heavy load. Open the front bottom panel and clean the drain pump filter of foreign objects. Also check the drain hose and make sure it is not clogged or kinked. If too much detergent was used, run the unit thru a rinse/spin cycle then a normal cycle without adding any detergent. Check the wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and control board
Error F5 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full. This may have happened due to blockage or obstruction in drain hose. To be sure check whether hose is plugged, if not then remove lower rear panel of the washer. Now you would be able to see drain pump and a large black hose on bottom of drum. Remove the hose from the pump; remember to keep a container near you to collect the water from the filter/pump. Remove and clean the drain filter connected with the pump and hose. Clean the pump and let it dry for a while. Now restart the washer after 2-5 minutes and your issue would be resolved. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps...
If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters ofwater and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
Possible Causes/Procedure If too much detergent was used: Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle. Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 6. Check drain pump. 7. Check the pressure switch. 8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any Cycle.
The light flashes after a certain amount of run time. It is a reminder to check the filter to see if it needs cleaning. Once you have checked/cleaned the filter and reinstalled it, press the filter button for 5 seconds and the light should go out.
