Hi

Error F5 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full. This may have happened due to blockage or obstruction in drain hose. To be sure check whether hose is plugged, if not then remove lower rear panel of the washer.
Now you would be able to see drain pump and a large black hose on bottom of drum. Remove the hose from the pump; remember to keep a container near you to collect the water from the filter/pump. Remove and clean the drain filter connected with the pump and hose. Clean the pump and let it dry for a while. Now restart the washer after 2-5 minutes and your issue would be resolved. Please post back for further assistance. Hope this helps...

Water wont pump out code f-05


Clogged drain pump.
Check the drain pump filter. Use a flashligth and you will se if the impeller is stuck on something. If not check the hose from the drum to the drainpump housing. May be clogged.
If not, replace drainpump

hi sharon, i had simular problem, if your waste outlet from your machine to kitchen sink is pushed on to sink waste sometimes held with jubilee clip, disconnect it and check weather its clear cos it can get build up of ****** and stop water from draining, hope this helps.

Washer machine hotpoint aquarious the five side lights flash and the top spin light flash all the time and machine wont work


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

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!) and most 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!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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!

Please score this solution as you think fit. Thank you and good luck!

Hi i have a Hotpoint WMF740 Aquarius washing machine which had a F-05 error which i have hopefully fixed. now the lcd display is saying f-09 error what do i need to do now.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
For the F05 presumably you found and cleared/cleaned the drain filter ;-0)
F09 is rather a more difficult problem as it decodes as an 'incorrect or faulty EEPROM'. I presume you have tried disconnecting power and reconnecting again? If you have I'm afraid it will need an engineer to fix ;-0( Sorry, John C

HI F 05 IS FLASHING ON MY WASHING MANCHINE


You will probably need to clean the pump filter.
To access the pump filter,remove the lower plastic panel at front of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew the cover anti-clockwise, remove filter and clean.
This should clear the fault.
If it does not , let me know, and i can can tell you other things to look for.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
