The door switch might be loose causing the control to alert the user that the door is open or not properly closed. Close the door properly and hold it firmly closed and see if the message stops flashing. The door switch might need be replaced.

Hotpoint aquarius wmf 740 has error code f5 - what does it mean?

I think you mean F05, in which case it means that the pressure switch is jammed on full.
You need to remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well, and look inside the pump.
This should solve your problem.

The door switch is no longer making contact internally or a wire has broken r disconnected. I would verify this with a test meter and replace the switch. Eric
