An ‘F05’ error is caused by the pressure switch actually being forced on full, or being faulty although this is unlikely. You will need to per off the machine at the mains, remove and thoroughly clean the filter and replace it. Turn the mains on and power up the machine, set it to a short wash cycle and make sure that the drain pipe actually passes water to show that the pump is working properly. If it does then you will need to have a service engineer visit as the control module is likely to be at fault and if it does not pass water then power off the machine, switch off at the mains and see if the exit pipe is blocked. If not then the water pump is most likely faulty and a service visit will be required.

I think you mean error F05 for a Hotpoint washer.
it means the pressure switch is jammed on full, check pump is working o/k and if there is a filter, remove and clean it, see user instructions..
If still no joy, then you will have to call an engineer..
Plz rate this solution.

Hotpoint ultima error code f5

Fault code f05 is a drainage problem or pressure switch stuck on full.
If your machine is full of water, unplug it from the wall socket. Drag the machine out and lower the drain hose into a wash basin. Raise the hose to stop the flow of water. Repeat the draining process until you get no more water coming out.
Now take the rear panel off, check the pump hasn't burned out, use a multimeter to test if it's open circuit and check the wires to it aren't broken.
If all ok there, take the hose off the bottom of the tub and clear out any debris in there.
If this doesn't work, repeat draining it and this time take the pump out and make sure there's nothing there stopping the pump running.

If there is no water in the machine, take the lid off, locate the pressure switch and take the small bore tube off it, blow down the tube to ensure there is no blockage. Give the pressure switch a tap and try again.

Error code f08 on Wt940 ultima.

not sure if this will help but try:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS
Comment by pulmicort, posted on Feb 02, 2008 Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.
