F05 is normally a fault cause by the pressure switch - often caused by a blockage in the exit hose of the washer. if the water cannot leave the washer in time the f05 will come up because the pressure switch has not told the machine it empty. on hotpoints there is a filter inside the exit pipe from the drum to the pump which gets blocked up. need to remove and clear out the sump assembly and this normally fixes the f05 error. if this does not cure the issue then the pressure switch is probably faulty but its notmally just a blocked pipe.

I am getting and FO5 error


F05 error is a motor issue and to solve this error you have to check all the connections to the motor and try to remove & then reinsert/replace the motor brushes. You can also check all the connections to the motor and if everything appears fine then the motor should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Code error F05

If this is a Whirlpool model the FO5 error code means:

Water Temperature Sensor Error

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor

(NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error

code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay

• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay


Hope this sheds some light on your problem

My WMD960 washing machine is coming up with error code FO5

That code indicates a blockage probably in the filter. If the machine is full of water try to drain it first by lowering the outlet hose into a bucket, of course that may not be too successful if the outlet is blocked but in any event you will need to unscrew the filter and clean it out. Be prepared for some water spillage. I would appreciate your vote for me if you think I helped. w

Hello,F05 means that the pump is not getting rid of the water.
You to locate and clean the filter, and or check the pump for a blockage or restriction.
