I give you here the filter & pump details:

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 ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstructions like a coins or clips. Do not take off the white hose clips.

After the filter comes the pump, disconnect. Slide pump to left and lift, it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean out any obstruction and reassemble. Refit all as you dismantled.

My hotpoint ultima wf860 looks as though it is stuck mid cycle, the water will not empty and the display is flashing F-05 in the dispay. ive not tried anything yet as not sure what the problem is.


Hi Mark from retired Englishman in SW France,

Indesit (Hotpoint/Ariston) 'F05' stands for 'pump block'.
(the following I've pre-typed- very common problem!)

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My washing machine is giving me F-05 on the screen, it will not empty after the load has finished, please help (Ultima WF840)


Sound like your drain pump is blocked. Tilt the machine as far back as you can to access underneath. The drain pump is located at the rear corner. Make sure to have a basin and remove the pipe going from the drain pump to the tub and see if anything is obstructing the pipe or stuck in the tub, is usually a sock. Hope this helps.

Hi we have a Hotpoint Ultima 6 kg PowerStream Wash System washing machine and the pipe seems to be blocked, when spinning the machine can not drain the water. Does this machine have a plug somewhere what...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

f05 meas not drained. usually due to a blockage in your filter.
you will need to get the water out by holding the drain hose lower than the machine into a basin. when drained the door can be opened. unscrew the filter and check for coins/socks etc.

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle


the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.


hope this helps

Lower the outlet hose into a low bowl, if water flows then you need a new pump cost around 20 pound to buy, If no water comes out the you have a blockage somewhere.
