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 Ultima Washing machine - When I switch it on all the lights keep flashing and I can't get rid of them !! When the machine then starts the cycle it still flashes but then stops half way and says...

I would advise you to check the drain outlet hose for a possible blockage, or the pump itself could be blocked or faulty.
Drain any surplus water in to a bucket or similar before removing hose or pump.
Also try resetting washer if there is a reset button, hold it in for at least 3 seconds, this should clear any programme held in the memory.
Hope this helps.

WD865 Hotpoint - F-05 error

F05 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full.
You need to check the pump is pumping out o/k, and if there is a filter, check and clean.

Error f05

Check that water is draining out o/k and that the outlet hose is not kinked or restricted.
Make sure pump is o/k.
if it has a removable filter at the front, then remove and clean.
If no exterior filter, then remove rear panel of waher, locate pump at bottom right of m/c. undo the clip that secures the large black hose to the bottom of tub, and remove the hose.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside the hose.
Refit and make sure the hose is on properly, test for leaks.
Hopefully, this will solve the prob.
