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

You cant seal off the inlet, but you can get a Y adapter, its a hose that splits into 2 outlets. They are most often used to hook up steam dryers but will work for wha you need, this will allow you to use it but it will not get the best cleaning results

whare the option buttons are if you number them 1 to 5 from top to bottom if led 2 and 4 are flaching this is a time out draining and you will need to check your waste hose for twists traps and kinks also check Filter if there is a user servicable one on the applionce and check plumbing. This is a comman fault and if you get hotpoint out to it even if it is only a day old they will charge for the call out as it is classed as user error or faulty instalation this works on all WF,WD & WT modles with 5 option buttons on the left habnd side the applionces with digital displays will show F-05 insted but it all means the same
