F5 means a blockage. you will need to drain it by putting the drain hose lower than the machine to syphon it out into a basin. then you can check the filter for the cause.

Check this procedure to solve it:
1. If door latched:

step C.
C. Replace door switch.
D. Re-apply power.
E. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

2. If door not latched:
A. Disconnect power from unit.
B. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to
step C.
C. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

After cleaning, the oven will not work, it keeps flashing F5, whats the problem?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error code F5 is a door latch failure and is displayed due to malfunction of door latch-switch assembly. First try to check the door latch switch, if fine then recommended repair is replacement of door latch-switch mechanism. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
