E5 s a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units. It is stated in the service manual that the wiring between the indoor and outdoor has probably separated at one end of the terminal block. Most of the time however, it is usually a failure of either the indoor or outdoor electronic boards. A multimeter and knowledge of how to read "communications voltages is required. The machine will continually assess itself electronically to make sure all components are working properly. If after a given amount of attempts to communicate with the outdoor unit the machine still cant "talk" to the other 1/2 , it will show an E5 error and shut itself down. You could try switching off the power at the isolator or meter box for at LEAST 15 minutes and then turn back on to see if it resets. This sometimes works. Do not, just switch off and switch straight back on again.
Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU. If machine will start-
If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
E5 is the fault code for Compressor overheat/malfunction it coulb be caused by the exhaust hose being too long or kinked, remove the exhaust hose and run the unit for an hour and see if your problem goes away, if so re-route the exhaust hose, if not you need to contact the manufacture
In order for the high speed spinning (rinse) cycle to begin, the lid must be shut. If your unit is top load, the problem is more likely the lid switch. or the tab on the lid that activates the switch is broken. If the tab is OK, disconnect unit from power outlet, remove back panel and trace the two wires going to the switch, once located, use a piece of wire to jump the two together, reconnect unit to power outlet and set the knob to rinse cycle, if unit works, replace switch.

Hi just read your posting.This problem sounds like your control module is doing funny things.Does it show an error code at all and beep?What part of Australia are you in?There is a place in Melbourne that tests these modules.Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.
it may be a heating problem,does it get hot at all, or over heat.may be a thermistor fault.remove the door skin and see if rinse aid has leaked onto the wiring.or the board itself cauld be faulty,but are very expensive.hope this helps.
