If you found coins and such in the drain filter then there is a possiblility that the impeller in the drain pump motor was damaged and you are not getting good water flow thru it. The machine will error out and stop mid cycle if it detects it has not drained in a set amount of time. OE indicated a drain error. I suspect you need to have the drain pump motor assembly replaced.

HD= No drain.
HI, check the following to address this issue.
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

F 05 normally means there is a blockage or a fault with the pressure sensor. The common place for blockage is in the black pipe from the drum to the pump as it has a filter in here and clogs up. remove the pipe and clean the filter out and remove gunk from the pressure sensor on the side of the pipe as well. If that does not fix things the pressure switch could be faulty itself

sounds like either the pump is blocked or broken.
bring machine forward so that you can tilt it back so as to be able to undo filter cover.
Be aware, lots (and i mean lots) of water will exit so a) have a big bowl and b) only undo filter cover a little so can retighten quickly.
Repeat until all water gone, remove cover completely and clean pump and filter area.
Refit cover, put machine back on floor, put on spin cycle and if it was a blockage, machine should empty. If not, new pump time I'm afraid
