Question about Washing Machines
Thought it was pump blocked because i found 2x hairgrips in the sump.
F05 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full, this is the switch that controls the water level.
It could be a faulty switch, a blocked hose to the switch, or a pump blockage.
Check pump first to see if it is draining o/k.
If o/k ,then there is not a lot more that you can do, unless you are conversant with washers and know how to check pressure switch and pressure chamber and hose for blckage or malfunction.
I would suggest that you call some one in if you can not sort it yourself.
Plz rate my solution.

I removed the drain pipe and ran the wash cycle into two buckets which completed correctly.
I therefore checked the drain connection to the sink and found a lot of fluff blocking up the hole.
The fixya guru suggested it could be pump and / or pressure switch but it was much simpler than that.
Us engineers often dive in at the deep end with technical fixes but sometimes the solution is simple.

f-05 usually relates to either the pump being blocked or the sump of this particular model being full of coins, color catchers etc.
first keep it simple, ensure outlet hose is not blocked or kinked....but if not follow these steps
tilt machine forward as above with a basin ensuring isolated from mains power
