Question about Indesit Washing Machines
I have a full load of washing in the machine, but it is coming up with error code F-05. Does anyone know what this means and how i can get my stuff out??
Thanks in anticipation!!
"F05" is an indication of a water temperature sensor (NTC) error. Check the Water Temperature Sensor and check electrical connections to the Water Temperature Sensor.
To access, you will have to UNPLUG your washer and remove the lower access panel under the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: If you place a block of wood under each front foot of the washer, it will make access to the screws much easier. If the panel sticks, a tap on the sides will knock it free. The panel will drop down then come off. The sensor (NTC) is located at the base of the wash tub in the front on the heating element. This will be a small square shaped plug between the heating element terminals. Unplug the wire harness and take a resistance check. Readings will be as follows:
Temperature Meter Reading
32°F (0°C) 35.9 K ohms
86°F (30°C) 9.7 K ohms
104°F (40°C) 6.6 K ohms
122°F (50°C) 4.6 K ohms
140°F (60°C) 3.2 K ohms
158°F (70°C) 2.3 K ohms
203°F (95°C) 1 K ohms
Roughly...around 9K ohms at room temperature if I'm reading the chart correctly. Take readings as listed and also double check the connector to make sure it is not oxidized. Try cleaning the plug and reconnecting to see if the error code goes away. If not, you will probably have to replace the sensor.
The part number is 8181705 and listed as "NTC" at Searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and you will find the part under the "Tub and Basket" heading. The best part only costs $9.75.
If your items are stuck inside the washer and pushing the "Pause/Cancel" button does not unlock the door, you will need to pull the manual release to open the door. With the bottom panel removed, reach up behind the front panel near the door latch. Locate the bottom of the door latch and you will find a round tab. Pull this tab straight down and the door will unlock.
I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.

F17 indicates no water coming into the condensing chamber during drying.
Unplug the appliance.
Take the top off.
Check to see if the condensing chamber below the heating chamber is blocked.
