You have a fault on the machine which is a dead short or an earth leakage.
Neither can be sorted out without a set of testers and some knowledge
Unless you can get hold of a resistance checker and know how to use it call a in a repair person

E15 means that it is not draining fast enough. As well as checking the outlet pipes, check the filter leading to the pump. Disconnect the power and pipe. If possible take outside because there will be a residual amount of water. Remove the back panel, then disconnect the locking rings holding the tubes on. Your main target should be the big downflow rubber tube from the drum, in here is a plastic filter. In mine I found a child's sock... plus buttons...plus slime. Problem solved.

Turn off the power and isolate the water supply, Move the machine in to the middle of a room - you need some space. If you then rock the washing machine backwards, there is a door release. It's extremely hard to reach, about level with the lock, so make sure the machine is both stable and that someone is with you to ensure the machine doesn't fall and crush you to death!
It basically looks like an little electronic panel, in the middle of which you can see a steel knoble. Press with some force, and the catch will release.
This just happened to ours, and the actual lock is broken, so that was why we couldn't open the door. Yours might have a similar fault. The mechanism is partially plastic and it looks like the plastic sheared off and then the electric release no longer pulls the catch in to the position where it will release.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston) 'F05' decodes as 'pump blockage'.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
