Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Hotpoint Aquarius+ washing machine won't drain and got an F05 error code when trying a wash cycle. Initially the inlet pipes had frozen due to the cold weather but it is now taking in water. However it won't drain. I've read some forums and the posts suggest a blockage in the pump filter but it is supposed to be located in the sump hose - not sure how to access it. Can you help?

Error code F05 means pressure switch jammed on full.
Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum
Remove and clean filter in side hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve the problem
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint WF620 - flashing error F05


This is a drain problem. Most likely something caught in the pump which is accessed by removing the small panel at the rear/bottom of the machine. The pump slots in place and can be removed by lifting and shifting to the left. Unscrew the pump off or remove the pipes will reveal all.

Sounds like water pressure could be low or inlet pipe is kinked.

F04: possible filling or water level problem. Check water inlet pipe (or shut-off valve), or the outlet pipe, or the pump or pump filter if accessible (check for blockages or foreign objects). Also could be the water valve solenoid weak, causing filling to be too slow.

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