HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Error code f05 hotpoint ultima


In your service manual it states F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full many times I find this is due to a blockage in the drain line and if you take and clean out the drain line it usually alleviates the problem most of the time due to this error. I also find that while doing this it is best to also check the drain line that comes off the water opump as well as the one that goes from the bottom of the tub to the pump as well. Also checking the pumps impellar that it does spin freely assures future useage without problems for a much longer time with your washer. If you have any further questions message them back. Please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rate how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation. By doing this it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future.
Thank you

My hotpoint wd 860 washing machine won't spin and


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston) 'F05' decodes as 'pump'blocked'.

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!

Wf 860 error code f05 psi switch jammed on full - machine had not emptied water. Is this faulty switch or blocked pump etc?


F05: possible draining (pumping off) problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND.

Check for blockage first.

My hotpoint wf 640 is saying f 05 what is the cause


FIRST - UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE -

F05 means the Pressure switch is jammed on full.
In plain english the machine thinks it is already full of water so either wont fill or wont spin until it has drained out or THINKS it has drained out.

The Pressure switch is at the top of the machine and is connected by a plastic tube leading down to the sump assy.

Check the connections first. Then removing the back panel lean the machine forward and as long as the machine is empty - Remove the Black Sump Hose from the tub by slackening the jubilee clip (put a washing up bowl underneath first).

The filter is located in there - Clean it out and make sure it is clear where the pressure switch tube is connected.

Reassemble, remembering to put the ball back and making sure the hose is located correctly - there are notches on the plastic filter and in the bottom of the rubber sump - That should do it - Hope this helps
