Hi, welcome to Just answer... F05 error indicates that washer is unable to drain ... with the washer unplugged pull it out and check the drain hose, make sure there is nothing stuck... also check the drain filter located at the bottom front right after you have removed the plastic tirm ... clean the filter and make sure that impeller rotates freely ... if you do not find the filter then you have to remove the back and check the pump, also clean the black hose from the drump to pump ... this should solve the problem... if it does not then please get back with its complete model number
