Re: flashing f - 05
Error f05 is a problem with the pressure system usually caused by a blockage. These are most commonly found in the pipe which is attached to the bottom of the drum.
Take off the access plate at the back of your machine and you can see it is secured by a large jubilee type clip.
Please be aware that there will be water in this pipe.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

F-05 normally relates to the pressure switch,which normally points to a blockage.Does the machine empty slowly if so I would check the drain pipe first and if that is ok then you need to look down at the drain pump which may have a blockage in the filter which is inside the sump pipe,this is the main hose from the base of the drum and goes to the pump.
Hope this helps.
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.
F05 indicates that pressure switch is jammed on full.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, and locate and remove large black hose on bottom of drum, remove and clean filter inside of hose.
Please rate my solution.
F 05 IS A PUMPING PROBLEM CHECK IF FILTER IS AT BOTTOM FRONT R H S.CLEAN OUT AFTER EMPTYING.IF NOT AT FRONT IT IS LOCATED AT BACK OF MACHINE IN PANEL AT BOTTOM . THE FILTER IS IN THE BLACK HOSE COMING FROM TUB. ++++ REMOVE PLUG BEFORE DOING ANY OF ABOVE +++++
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
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
