F05 on an Indesit washing machine means "Pressure switch jammed on trip" As
is often the case, knowing the error code is one thing, but findng the
cause is another because error codes often have several possible
causes. The wording of the error code explanation suggests the pressure
switch clicked on to register a water level, but when the water was
drained away it remained on instead of turning off. I would guess there
could be a blockage in the pressure system, or the pressure switch
could be faulty. Also, if the water didn't drain properly it would
cause the pressure switch to stay on too. Finally, the Indesit washing
machines PCB's can give erroneous errors where the fault turns out to
be with the pcb itself. This makes things very difficult if you don't
have access to replacement PCB's to try.Basically, I would keep
an eye on the washing machine and try it again. If it reoccurrs then
clearly it needs sorting, but if it doesn't it might have just been one
of those things.
