F06 is a water level fault.
It will either be due to a faulty vacuum switch (which is the hockey-puck thing with the little tube to it,
or it will be not draining properly because of a blocked or faulty outlet pump or filter.
The worst case scenario is that it might be a control board failure.
Check the filter & pump first.
Check to see if the vacuum switch switches by sucking or blowing into the tube.
Sometimes just doing that can free it up if was stuck.?
Best of luck.

Hotpoint 720 incorporates a fill pressure switch, it monitors the fill level and passes instructions that sufficient water level has been reached, and instructs the programmer to continue to the next stage of the cycle.
Accepting, that enough water has entered the drum, the level switch could be faulty, however it is most likely to be the programmer.
To test any of the fault finding to cure this fault requires removing panels and I would not recommend you doing this unless you are qualified.
If you are however qualified and satisfied that you can proceed safely, with concerns for your own safety, I will send you, a process on how to proceed, checking out weather it is the pressure switch or the programmer.
Is it an old machine with physical switches (push to hold etc) or electronic ?
As a starter....make sure cycle on switch is off then plug in..... wait for few minutes while it sets its programmer... the light should settle. Attempt a wash. If it's still flashing erratically... main board might be blown or motor burnt out......or the rubber band may be disconnected from drum. ...
Your problem is with the pressure switch to locate it try to find a thin pipe going from the tub to the pressure switch it's a round machine having a thin pipe and some electrical cables, try to remove the pipe and blow air in it if there is dirt it will goes in the tub also check the filter if there is no filter it will not drain
Possible that the pressure switch is struck up in full, It will be best to remove the switch and clean or release the jamming. Also check the drain for clogging , check the INLET flow, if not clean the inlet filter as well as the outlet filter on the drain pump.
Hi, The washer will fail to spin if there is too much water in the machine, check the filter on the machine is not clogged or blocked if it's not then the pump could be suspect, normally you can hear it running on the spin cycle. it could also be the motor brushes are worn.
if its none of the above I would suggest that it maybe the pressure switch or pressure switch tube blocked other than that the last resort is the programmer or motor control panel.
check pump/filter/outlet hose for blockages. if ok, check pressure switch (disc shaped item at top of machine with 4? wires and a tube) by blowing into it gently - should hear clicks, then blow into tube to pressure chamber - should be clear.
I think you mean error F05 for a Hotpoint washer.
it means the pressure switch is jammed on full, check pump is working o/k and if there is a filter, remove and clean it, see user instructions..
If still no joy, then you will have to call an engineer..
