Question about Washing Machines
Turn drum by hand, if you feel it catching, its something between the drum and tub, put in through soap draw usually by children. Can be removed by taking out the heater element to get access under drum.
If it feels rough all the way round when turned and it can be lifted up slightly ( free play ) then its probably the drum bearings and seal failed.

Error F05 indicates pressure switch jammed on full.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve the problem.

Tips for a great answer:
It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Since you had turned manually the motor and drum and there was no noise, if so the motor bearings could be failing when in motion or with load.. Also the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link:
