Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Don't dispair- it's not just a 'man' thing!
Here are my complete and general 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.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Hotpoint wt640g washing machine with F05 fault. I have read and tried other customers fault finding answers but to no avail. I have taken all the pipes off and checked for blockages (none found) checked...


Hi

An F-05 error message means that the pressure switch is jammed on empty or a problem with pump.
The fault is associated with drain out (pump blocked or restricted in some way).
Small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull of the two pipes (Plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and unclip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Indesit wixe127 error code F05


F05 means that the pressure switch is jammed on full, this is the switch that controls the water level.
It could be a faulty switch, a blocked hose to the switch, or a pump blockage.
Check pump first to see if it is draining o/k.
If o/k ,then there is not a lot more that you can do, unless you are conversant with washers and know how to check pressure switch and pressure chamber and hose for blckage or malfunction.
I would suggest that you call some one in if you can not sort it yourself.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fault f05


F05 means pressure switch jammed on full, firstly check that pump is working and that there is no blockage anywhere,
if it still does not work, then you are going to have to call an engineer.
Hope this helps.
