Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in Just Answer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

I'm sorry to hear of your washer dryer problem.

So that I can give you accurate guidance, please let me know the exact model number of the appliance, as shown on the label that you should see when you open the door.

Hi Tim, I cannot open the door as I think water is in

OK.  Please bear with me a moment...

F05 almost certainly indicates a problem when the machine is trying to drain out the water.  There are many possible causes of this, but the most common is that a small item like a coin or hairclip is blocking the pump impeller.

Please read through the guidance on the following web page, and let me know if you need assistance when following the instructions given there.
