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.

Why won't washing machine start?

It is most probably the door sensor that is faulty. If the sensor does not sense the door closing the machine will stay in "open door" mode and will not start with it's program.

If the machine is still under warranty, take it in for repair or have someone check it out for you. It should be a quick fix, if parts are available.

My washing machine keeps flashing F5... It works for the cycle but when it starts to get to the spinning process it flashes F5 and doesn't work

Sounds like a blocked pump, unfortunately unless you are very handy they make it impossible for you to do it as it involves leaning the machine back and taking off hoses etc and it can be tricky to get back on unless as I say you are a DIY'er.

Aqualtis AQGD 169 S F12 problem Please help :-(

ok, I have just had the 'blocked pump message and after much playing around I have solved it.

Pull the machine out and take the drain out and place in a bucket. Then tilt the machine on its side about 30 to 45 degrees so you can get a hand underneath. At the front there is a black rubber pipe-squeeze this a few times and then run the machine on a pump cycle. Put water in machine (i used a bucket) and repeat. You should get the foul smelling gunk out of the pump. I did this about 4 times and finally the water comes out clean and you should be ok.

Regards and good luck,
