Try to tighten the screw using a small screw driver or try to pull the knob and give some paper packing and fix it then rotate the knob to the desired position

Hi,
First remove the filter (if you can do this easily) - place a roasting pan under it to catch the water.

If you cannot get to any filter, remove the rear pipe from the waste pipe, and check it is not obstructed.
If it looks good enough, try a hot wash with 1 cup of soda crystals. This should clear any accumulation of grease in the pipes.

If still no good, you may have to open up the machine to clear any internal filter before the pump, and check pump vanes are still intact.

Something wrong the pump would prevent the machine draining and generate an F5 code.

SOURCE: hi got hotpoint aquarious wmf740.

Hi

Error F5 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full. This may have happened due to blockage or obstruction in drain hose. To be sure check whether hose is plugged, if not then remove lower rear panel of the washer.
Now you would be able to see drain pump and a large black hose on bottom of drum. Remove the hose from the pump; remember to keep a container near you to collect the water from the filter/pump. Remove and clean the drain filter connected with the pump and hose. Clean the pump and let it dry for a while. Now restart the washer after 2-5 minutes and your issue would be resolved. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
For the F05 presumably you found and cleared/cleaned the drain filter ;-0)
F09 is rather a more difficult problem as it decodes as an 'incorrect or faulty EEPROM'. I presume you have tried disconnecting power and reconnecting again? If you have I'm afraid it will need an engineer to fix ;-0( Sorry, John C

My hotpoint Aquarius wmf740 washer dial is just spinning is there an easy fix


yes

its in error mode

its trying to get back to where the error was last
drain the machine from the filter

power off the mains

hold in the power on button
and turn on the mains
it will reset

the machine does a simple self check when it turns on
so a faulty pump will cause this
usually its a faulty pump housing is leaking water

or blocked up
so the pump cant move
when you turn it on it spins the pump motor a few turns and detects its running

so you may need to remove the filter round cover screw
and its tray

and check the pump viens move
may be some hair clip or clothes wires stuck in it or a coin etc


it should go to then where it left off
i would at this point stop it with the button
move the selector to drain
and let it drain and end
or to short spin
if it spins aok and ends
then you can just go for it with a load
if it fails to short spin and drain something else is wrong
