F-05 usually relates to either the pump being blocked or the sump of this particular model being full of coins, color catchers etc.

first keep it simple, ensure outlet hose is not blocked or kinked....but if not follow these steps

  • To sort this isolate from mains
  • take off back inspection panel.
  • tilt machine forward- get sum1 to hold it for u.
  • The sump is the black hose attached to drum.
  • place a basin under this and loosen jublie clamp using star head screw driver/ 8mm socket,
  • pull sump downwards and remove any blockage.
  • note the plastic ball is part of the sump assembley.
  • refitt the sump again and tighten clamp, pull down firmly on sump to ensure fitted correctly
if there was nothing in the sump it is sumthing jamming the pump, hairgrip, nail, etc.

tilt machine forward as above with a basin ensuring isolated from mains power
  • pump is attached to other end of sump hose, right side of machine as you look in the back.
  • using flat screwdriver lift plastic tag up and slide pump assembley to the left releasing it from base of machine
  • clip of plastic cover from top of pump
  • remove wires from pump
  • u should now be able to turn pump around so u can see 3 hex head screws
  • remove screws taking note of the position of pump
  • remove pump and clear blockage
  • reverse steps to reassemble
if this does not sort it poss a new pump needed.

Wf 860 error code f05 psi switch jammed on full - machine had not emptied water. Is this faulty switch or blocked pump etc?


F05: possible draining (pumping off) problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND.

Check for blockage first.

Error code E20 on Zanuzzi washing machine. Not draining/washing.


Simple in most cases its just the filter outlet has becopme full of day to day junk, debris and slime.
Slowly release the water by turning the handle to release the water. Ensure power is off.
Once water has been drained into a shallow tray you will be able to open the door.
Once the drum is empty, unscrew the handle completely to remove filter housing an clean out thoroughly.
replace and tighten up.
Turn on power and reset all programmes.
this should work, total cost about 15 minutes of your time.
If it doesnt work it may then be your pump, time to think about and engineer
