Hi,There are basically just few reasons :1. Maybe the water pressure is too low2. Hoses are blocked - check that there are no kinks in the cold water fill hose and the waste water hose too3. Clogged inlet valve - the water inlet valve supplies hot and cold water.You can read more about most common washing machine faults here -

Important: Switch the power off from the wall socket and unplug your washing machine first! Remove the bottom panel - you will fint the filter here. Please place a towel in front of the filter to absorb any water.ec966306-632f-4975-a836-ac21ea0cb712.jpgThanks Carolyn, it looks you have a very old model - the bad news is the filter is under the drum. It would be hard to explain here and I don't have this model in the repair shop to send you a photo, but I have found a good video that will show you where the filter is placed, please have a look this helps.?Best,?Dave

You need a pulling tool and a press to put it back on. I would percivere with a blade and patience.

remove the front kick strip, on the LHS you will notice a yellow tag. with the power on on the machine pull down twice gently on this tab. this should unlock the door.

if you now notice the drum is full of water its more than likely your filter is blocked and this is what caused the door not to open.

F04 Error code is "Pressure switch jammed on empty" F07 Error code is "Heater relay stuck" Both would require you to dis-assemble the washer to get to each part for checking / replacing.

Hello. If the problem happens every time you wash and is not an intermittent phenomenon, my first guess is your main control board has gotten corrupted somehow(there is a small computer program stored on the board which tells the machine how to operate dependent on which wash options you choose). I had to check extensively for the parts diagram to your unit--there is only one board that controls will need to get the actual model number from the barcode sticker when trying to get this board. It will be located near or on the door. I hope I helped you!

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
