F05 means a blockage usually. check the drain hose is clear and there may be something in your filter or pump.

F05 and F02 errors are caused by problems with the tape transport mechanism and may be even be caused by a broken mechanical component. Unless it goes away when using another tape you may need to send it in for repair.

Indesit pwe 8148 w with error code FO5 Is the problem usually either a blockage or the pressure switch? I am going to try to fix it myself but how do i get to the pressure switch to see if it is stuck on...


F05 means that the pressure switch shows full all the time:

F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full

The fault is usually fixed repairing or replacing the pressure switch. Before replacing the switch check for draining issues that can trigger F05 and clean the hose connected to the PS. The PS is located inside the appliance in the control panel or at the right side of the cabinet. The part is reached removing the screws holding the top and lifting the top. Power must be disconnected before starting.

Here how the switch looks like:

Code error F05

If this is a Whirlpool model the FO5 error code means:

Water Temperature Sensor Error

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor

(NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error

code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay

• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay


Hope this sheds some light on your problem

Not empty or spinning and say fo5 on the control panel

F05: possible draining problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND. Hope this helps sort out the problem.

Error code fo5

f05 is normally a fault cause by the pressure switch - often caused by a blockage in the exit hose of the washer. if the water cannot leave the washer in time the f05 will come up because the pressure switch has not told the machine it empty. on hotpoints there is a filter inside the exit pipe from the drum to the pump which gets blocked up. need to remove and clear out the sump assembly and this normally fixes the f05 error. if this does not cure the issue then the pressure switch is probably faulty but its notmally just a blocked pipe.

Hi hotpoint 7kg washing machine ultima digit washes fine and spins etc but i keep getting f05 flashing on display what do i do

Hi there usually the FO5 Problem is pump draining problem, check the U Bend under your sink for blockages also the outlet pipe for blockages, you may even need to take of the front lower panel and you should find a small pipe and you can clear and drain water from that also and clear of any bits. hope this helps
